This collaborative process guarantees that you receive all necessary documentation for permits, including detailed engineered reaction diagrams, ensuring your construction proceeds smoothly and stays on schedule.

The culmination of this meticulous process is a comprehensive set of construction drawings. These detailed plans not only provide a clear guide for your kit's assembly but also include a complete list of timbers and fasteners, serving as an invaluable reference throughout the installation of your frame. Our goal is to ensure that every step, from initial design to final construction, is seamless, transparent, and perfectly aligned with your project's needs.

Timbers, Joinery and Connections

Timber Frame Joinery and Connections Offered

After we've collaboratively chosen the ideal wood type for your project, we proceed to source the highest quality timber through our network of trusted mills. Ensuring that every piece meets our exacting standards, we then transport the timber to one of our cutting facilities. There, the joinery is meticulously crafted using CNC machines. Every joint, drilling, mortise, and tenon is cut with precision, adhering to tight tolerances for impeccable quality and fit.

Following the cutting process, all timbers are systematically labeled according to the production numbers assigned during the creation of your model and plans. This meticulous process ensures that every component of your timber frame is prepared with the utmost attention to detail, ready for the next phase of your project.

Included with your package are all the pegs, fasteners, screws, and connectors you need to put your ready-to-raise frame together. You will also get a detailed list for you to refer to while raising your frame.

What are your kits made out of?

Depending on your requirements, most of our kits are cut from Douglas Fir, Eastern White Pine, Cedar or Southern Yellow Pine.

Can You Install my Kit?

We do not provide installation ourselves, but depending on your area, we can recommend contractors who can raise the frame for you.

Are the kits engineered to conform to my local building codes?

Our standard kits are engineered to comply with most county and state requirements. If your locality has more specific requirements, we will supply a state specific stamp for an additional fee. It is your responsibility to determine what your local building department requires.

Do I need to install my kit?

All of our kits are pre-cut, pre-fit, labeled and ready for you to have fun with the raising!

What do I need to do to receive my kit shipment?

In most cases we can ship to your residence as long as the address is located within the Continental United States or parts of Eastern Canada. If your address is in a particularly difficult access area, you need to let us know and there may be additional fees. 

In order to deliver to your location: Your location has to be able to accommodate a full sized tractor trailer to park entirely off the road, and turn around to make egress.

You or your builder is responsible for offloading the kit materials and timbers from the delivery truck. The truck driver is under no obligation to be involved with any part of the unloading. The truck will not have a ramp or liftgate.  It is absolutely necessary for you to provide a  forklift  to move the timbers and pallets.

If a kit is less than 3,000 lbs you might be able to unload it a piece at a time. You need at least one other strong person to help you. We recommend you wear sturdy work gloves and have a cutting tool for breaking the packaging bands open. 

In the unlikely case that your kit arrives damaged, you have the option to refuse shipment. If this happens , please try to contact us while the driver is still there. We will try to help you make the best decision for what is happening.

Can you ship my kit to where I live?

We will ship your kit anywhere in the Continental United States or Canada. We ship your kit by freight carrier directly to you. Shipping usually takes 4-7 days depending on your location.

How much does shipping cost?

When we give you a quote for your timber frame kit, we will include a cost for shipping to your location. Please be very specific when describing the location we will be shipping to.

When will I know my delivery date?

When we receive your order we will tell you a date and approximate time for delivery. A tracking number is supplied once the kit has shipped, and the trucking company’s dispatcher will coordinate with you and the driver.

How soon will I receive my kit?

Most of our kits can be delivered as soon as eight weeks after you make your deposit, but for more complex frames (and especially if you are modifying the design of a kit) we recommend placing your order as much as six months before you plan to raise your frame. That way you have time for a collaborative design process, engineering, and local permitting.

How much does a Timber Frame Kit cost?

When you contact us, your Project Manager will lead you through the decision process to decide what kit you want and which (if any) modifications you need. The cost of kits varies greatly depending on the size and complexity. Use our Kit Calculator to get a quote on any of out Stock Kits HERE.

What sizes are your kits?

We offer a great variety in kit sizes, ranging from 8x12 up to 24x36 and larger. Take a look on our kit page to see them! 

What kind of joinery is cut into the timbers?

It depends on the size and design of the frame, but we use traditional mortise and tenon joinery, scarf joints, spline joints, tusk tenons, pegged half-laps, several other joints.

Do your kits include the foundation?

Our kit prices do NOT include any site preparation - including foundations. There are many different options for foundations but most folks choose to pour a monolithic slab. We provide the connectors to fasten your posts to the slab.

Do you supply the roof shingles, siding and windows?

We supply the timber frame, fasteners, finish and any other related items. The finishing elements are up to you to provide and install.
