Q: My building needs to be in compliance with LEED regulations.
Can you help me meet these requirements?
Yes. We use a variety of sustainably harvested species and recycled woods that are LEED-compliant and environmentally sound.
No. Everything we do is custom designed and crafted for your project.
Yes. We can take your ideas and develop shop drawings or basic floor plans with construction details. We can work with your architect or designer to incorporate timber framing into your project.
Yes. We can supply site erection services. We do not build turnkey homes but we will work with your builder to properly erect and incorporate the log or timberwork into your project. We pre-assemble all of our timber framework prior to shipping. When possible we ship timber trusses assembled. Because of this attention to detail in our shop our assistance is only required on site for complex erections thereby saving you the extra expense. We tailor the services we provide to the services you require.
Anywhere! From our shop in Tarboro, NC, which is in the eastern part of the state, we have already shipped to locations as far away as Oregon, Idaho, Florida, Massachusetts, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.
Under normal conditions a small truss project might require 6-10 weeks from the date of the deposit. A timber frame home may require 14-16 weeks. Lead times are effected by the choice of wood and our production schedule at the time of the order. Some woods are best used as “Winter Cut” and should be ordered in the Fall for a Spring delivery for best results. The more lead-time you can give us allows us to be more selective in the wood we obtain and gives us the chance to do some “Air Drying” of the timbers before processing. Orders are taken on a first come first serve bases.
Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, or White Oak are the most often used Species. We have worked with Cypress, Eastern White Pine, Maple, Mahogany, and Southern Yellow Pine. We have also worked with recycled woods such as Antique Heart Pine, Douglas Fir, and Chestnut. We often use Cherry or Walnut as a secondary or accent wood in frames. While species are available "kiln dried" or "air-dried," most of the wood we use is green. Load requirements, budget, lead-time, and aesthetics all affect the choice of wood for a project. We have used woods supplied by the client from their property on different occasions. After reviewing your project we can discuss the possibilities.
The only way we can give you an accurate quote for your projects is for you to send us sketches or drawings with as much information as you can about what you want to do and a site description. The cost of a project will often have more to do with the number of parts and the complexity of the frame than the square footage of the space.
