Are your plans engineered?

The plans we offer on our website are not stamped by an engineer. People build our frames all over the country, and in each location, there are different requirements.  Timber species, design loads and values needed are just some of the factors engineers need to take into account in each case.  

We do offer engineering services as an add-on to our standard plans. If this is something you are interested in, head HERE and fill out the brief questionnaire.  Armed with that information, we can get our heads into your project before we speak.  That way we are best prepared to answer all of your questions.
