Working With Architects
We understand how critical the role of architect is for any project, and it is even more so for timber frame homes. We know that it is not just a question of the aesthetics that a timber frame can offer, but also the structural strength of timber frame posts and beams and the beauty of the natural woods that entices homeowners.
We realize that a good design and a good set of plans is essential to a successful project. A home can only be as well constructed as the design it is based off of. Many clients are seeking the help of professionals familiar with timber frame and high performance architecture.
High Country Timberframe has provided assistance and guidance on timber frame design and engineering to architects for both residential and non-residential projects since 1997.
From small weekend cabins to large commercial structures and residential structures, we have collaborated with architects to ensure all details are considered before construction begins.
We offer design and construction assistance for both residential and commercial timber frames as well as high performance housing including ShopBuilt Panelized Walls TM and Structural Insulated Panels.
We prefer to be brought into the project as early as possible in the initial design stage. That way we can contribute our experience and save the architect the time and trouble needed to research joinery design, timber sizing and other engineering issues unique to timber framing. We would be pleased to provide references, should you need them.
