About High Country Timberframe


High Country Timberframe is company small enough to offer personal construction service of the highest quality for your individual home or commercial timber structure venture. Yet, we are a highly specialized company large enough to design, fabricate and install or build the most complex timber system or frame.


Based in beautiful, Boone, NC, 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 have both designed and worked on a variety of buildings from houses, churches and barns, to arboretums, pergolas, banks and covered bridges. 

We get it. Every project begins with a dream – your dream.  We offer tailor-made timber construction services for your specific needs, built to the highest quality and utmost standards of craftsmanship by our experienced timber framers and staff carpenters who are full-time employees of HCTF.  They are trained and knowledgeable in Timber Frame, SIPS, Panelized Wall and Standard Construction. Most have received their HERS Rater, BPI Building Envelope and Envelope Professional Certifications.  In other words, they understand the entire construction process and how all systems integrate with each other.


High Country Timberframe is committed to combining the traditional values of first-rate craftsmanship with the latest technologies available in materials and design. 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.  The same materials and methods of production that go into your project is the same that we would put into our own.  That is just how it should be.


Do our clients agree?

"The craftsmanship of the final project was beyond what I had hoped. All members of Gallery Woodworking demonstrated outstanding skills and ability in design, construction and carpentry. Their polite dealing with our inquisitive customers also impressed me. In all, it was a pleasure to work with Tom, Peter and Alan. I would not hesitate in hiring them again."
