Our Pre-Designed Timber Frames are easily adapted to suit your needs, and they offer incredible value! We offer two pre-designed bent configurations:

* 24' center-post bents use traditional joinery
with modern engineering
* 20' clear-span bents use innovative all-wood joinery to
create an un-interrupted clearspan.

Center-Posted 24'x36' Cape

(base size: 24’x24’)
Expand this frame in 12' increments.

This kit is engineered to accommodate comfortable living spaces using traditional, all wood joinery.

Wedged Dovetails and wedged half -dovetail mortice and tenon joints lock these timbers together tightly. Center posts help define interior spacing and layout.

12’x24’ bent modules allow this kit to be expanded to virtually any length! Place two or more kits side by side, offset, or add a shed to any face of the structure to vary the roof line.


The Original 20'x30' Cape

(base size: 20’x20’)
Expand this frame in 10' increments.

In 1973, Pat and Patsy designed and built this house with timbers hewn on-site.

Using a special “tusk” tenon, this frame features a 20’ clear span with no interior posts for maximum design flexibility.

Each “bent” adds a 10’x20’ space. Dormers and shed additions are easy to add.

Today we use full-dimension, planed timbers as described below. We take particular pride in the refined joinery, fit, and finish you will find in all our frames.
