Lancaster County Timber Frames Inc., a highly regarded award-winning shop is, by choice, a small company comprised of a dozen passionate people, all of whom are shareholders. Quality of design, service and workmanship are of much more importance to us than rate of turnover and volume of output.
Since 1987 we have been crafting timber frames of the highest order by hand. We have no desire to become material handlers, dumping raw timbers onto a CNC machine; nor do we desire to act as “brokers” or “virtual timber frames”, soliciting your business only to turn your project over to an automated third party job shop. Each and every one of our timbers is carved in our shop, by our craftsmen, by hand. These same craftsmen are the ones who will arrive at your site to erect your frame, exercising the same care during the raising that they took during the carving.
We have designed and erected over 450 timber frames. Some have been small and simple; others have been large and complex. While private residences constitute a large portion of our work, commercial projects follow closely behind. Some of our commercial projects include: Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum in PA, Belmont Abbey College Chapel in NC, Great Harbor Yacht Club on Nantucket in MA, John Wright Restaurant in PA, St. Thomas the Apostle Orthodox Church in MD, Siegrist Covered Bridge in PA, Atrium for the National Shrine of St. John Neumann in PA and the I-70 Welcome Centers in MD.
We provide an unedited list of all the architects and builders with whom we have worked, along with their phone numbers. We subject our performance on each and every project to independent third party evaluation through Guild Quality. We also believe it is very important that prospective clients inspect some of our projects firsthand. It’s all in the details, and the closer you look, the better we look.

Timber framing is the craft of building with posts and beams, joists and rafters, all connected by wooden joinery. This carpentry tradition goes back well over a thousand years in Europe, and longer yet in Asia. While in many parts of the world, timber frame carpentry traditions are alive and well, in America it has experienced a resurgence after being neglected for light stick framing. With the revival of interest in the craft in our country has come an openness to experimentation and exploration of world carpentry traditions. Timber framing in America today is an exciting blend of old and new, West and East. Our class project will be to cut and raise a small timber frame. Students will learn how to draw out joinery on timbers using the traditional Square Rule layout system; cut mortise and tenon joints using hand tools; and assemble and raise the frame. We will divide our course schedule between the daytime hands-on learning of woodworking skills as we cut our frame, and the evening sessions, where we will view slides and discuss a variety of topics relating to timber frame design and construction.

Unlike many companies, we raise our own frames. The same people that cut joinery on a frame also raise it, as were adamant that the intimate knowledge required to produce quality work should accompany the project to the site.
Our clients hail from all over North America (and sometimes beyond). We build these relationships from our shops in New York and Oregon, along with a handful of trusted partners in the US and Canada. Our clients’ dreams, wants, and needs are as diverse as their locations. Some folks are architects, builders, and homeowners creating magnificent lodges in the mountains while others are young couples who want a modest home. Their common thread is love of fine wood, elegant design, and quality craft.
