Hey, Brice here --

I bet there is a good chance that I've been exactly where you are.

Before I turned pro, I got my feet wet cutting a 16x24 timber frame that we lived in while I built our house.

Early on in the process... I realized that I was... STUCK...without a good set of plans.

But it takes a whole different skill set to design a timber frame and one that you or your contractor may not want to undertake.  It takes long hours to learn how to produce a useable set of drawings...

and a custom design could cost thousands of dollars making your project too expensive.

That’s why we have created this bundle and offer it at a fraction of the cost of what the actual plans sell for, or cost to produce.

So don’t try to "Wing it".

You and I are well aware of how that'll end up. I know I have have been there more than I care to admit.

Here's the deal: If you're going to invest the time, money and energy in building a timber frame yourself or have a contractor build it...

...Then make sure the plan you utilize has everything you need to get it done...

... Here's What a Great Timber Frame Plan NEEDS to Include:

3d Views of the Joints & Connections

See EXACTLY how everything should look BEFORE you start building .

Other plans show you only 2D views. I don’t think that is enough.

You'll still be wondering if you are building it right because you didn't view it in 3D.

And the only way you find out is at the assembly stage when you've wasted all that time, money and sweat... and nothing fits together.

Detailed Timber List

Know what sizes you need to order so you can get your projects off to a quick start.

The timber list even includes a little extra length so you can miss a knot or squirrely grain.

The Basic 2D Drawings

These are the drawing sheets that are the basis for every architectural plan out there.  They will give you an overall picture of the frame and the dimensions.

  • Post Plan
  • Roof Plan
  • Loft Plan
  • Elevation Views
  • Sectional Drawings

Detailed 2D Piece Drawings

This is where  all the non-similar pieces in the frame get detailed out so you see the joinery cuts on all 4 sides.

This is where the true magic and  time-saving is - all the  head scratching has been solved for you. Our CAD-designed drawings show you the exact dimensions of the timbers and joinery cuts you need.

How Do I Know This Is What Makes The Best Timber Frame Plan?

I know because I've helped hundreds of people to build stunning, inspiring and professional looking timber frames, that leave them and their guests in AWE.

...and I have been behind the chisel, sawmill, raising these structures  and designing them over the past 15 years.

Not only did I teach friends...

... I've taught absolute newbies, without ANY experience at all ...

...And they created an incredible frame THE VERY FIRST TIME.

So, I know it's not a fluke.

So here's what I've got for you...
