We are a full service timber frame company which has been providing custom timber frame design, engineering, fabrication and complete raising/installation services since 1997. We serve builders, architects, developers and homeowners with timber frame requests and are available for plan review and consultation.
At High Country Timberframe we hand cut every piece in your frame. The craftsman who hand cut the frame are also the ones who perform the installation. There are no better methods to produce tight, clean joinery. Some companies use giant CNC machines to cut their frames, and the results are technically correct. However, would you prefer a factory-produced armoire, or one built by hand by a skilled local craftsman? Which typically is more unique?
We are a fully insured, licensed general contractor who can take your project from an idea to total completion (select areas).
High value building options include our proprietary ShopBuilt High Performance Panelized Wall Systems, Structural Insulated Panels, Timber Frame and Insulated Concrete Form Construction.
Our staff carpenters are full-time employees of HCTF. They are trained and knowledgeable in Timber Frame, SIPS, Panelized Wall and Standard Construction. Many have received their HERS Rater, BPI Building Envelope and Envelope Professional Certifications.
High County Timberframe has been involved in the design and construction of numerous commercial and residential Japanese Post and Beam Projects. In addition to our residential projects, commercial projects include The Dawes Arboretum & Japanese Garden, Newark, Ohio and The New York Botanical Gardens, Bronx, NY.
Japanese Post & Beam allows for a great amount of design possibilities to be discovered from a single piece of wood, and the many uses it can have in a variety of building projects. It also provides for incredible interior spaces below the structural framing. These interior accents include items such as beautifully crafted doors, shoji screens, benches and furniture.

We have installed Structural Insulated Panels on numerous residential and commercial projects. On some, we have been both the designer and builder. On others, we have worked as a sub-contractor to the builder. We are experienced in all aspects of Structural Insulated Panel Installation.
Our installation crew are full-time employees of HCTF - not sub-contractors. They are trained and knowledgeable in Timber Frame, SIPS, Panelized Wall and Standard Construction.
We work personally with clients to achieve their dreams of designing and building one-of-a-kind heirloom-quality furniture and individual home decor items. We expand on their thoughts and vision or we design and create unique concepts from our own ideas and experience.
We may begin with a drawing, a picture, or an actual existing plan. We listen to the client to determine their vision and desires. We can work from their drawing, a photo or an actual plan.
