About Us

High Country Timberframe and Gallery Woodworking is a highly specialized company based in beautiful Boone, North Carolina.  We have focused on providing creative and elegant timber frame design and heavy timber construction services to residential and commercial clients nationwide since 1997.   






We are also are a licensed, fully insured general contractor.  Offering "turn-key" construction services, if you do not have a builder of choice, we can take your project from an idea to total completion (select areas).    If you have selected a builder, we  will work in close collaboration with them on the timber frame portion of the project.




A recently completed home, designed and built by High Country Timberframe, has received NC Greenbuilt and Energy Star 3 Certifications, the first in the region to do so.   Read More...





In 2010, we saw a demand for a well-designed, quality prefabricated home that could be built faster and more efficiently than a conventional stick-built home.  Additionally, would lessen the environmental impact by decreasing energy consumption and lessening construction waste of traditional building methods.


To meet this demand, we developed our proprietary ShopBuilt™ Panelized Wall Systems. ShopBuilt™ combines the strength and stabiliy of a structural sheathing panel with an enhanced weather resistance, water-resistive barrier. In addition to thermal, air and moisture resistance the panels provide exceptional strength and stability.   Read More......


Our Philosophy

We believe in a personal approach to both timber framing and custom homebuilding.   Our timber framers and 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.   The attention to detail and the care that goes into each project is  quite evident.  We believe in a personal approach to building  which means the owners of the company are directly involved in every project.  If a question or concern arises, you have the comfort of knowing you can speak directly to one of them - not a supervisor, not a sub-contractor, and not a salesman.


Whether you are a looking to build your own home, are an architect who designs homes, or a contractor looking for a timber frame sub-contractor, we are committed to providing quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service.
