We Build Timber Frames

From Trailhead Kiosks to New Homes

Structure With Soul

TimberHomes is a diversified design/build firm with timber framing at its heart. Whether we're designing a house, raising a barn, or making a backyard pavilion, our goal is for that structure to be beautiful, nurturing, natural, and timeless. From our line of kiosks to our finished homes, we design energy efficient, functional spaces. Above all, we build structures to stir the soul.

Timber Frames

Timber Framing is the heart of our business. Timber frames provide a solid structural framework to a building, and are a beautiful finished aesthetic. A decade of building together has honed our practice of cutting frames with character, working efficiently, and designing with care. The timber we use is all locally sourced and sawn. Our frames are cut in-house, and can be raised anywhere in the Northeast.

Timber Frame Houses

Building new homes is an exciting, imaginative process. Our goal is to build healthy homes with tiny ecological footprints that match the needs of our clients, and that will be cared for and loved for generations to come. We design and build new homes in Central Vermont and the Upper Valley, and can build timber frames for finished homes further afield. Ask about having your first meeting at one of our own houses or past projects to get a sense of what a TimberHome feels like.

Timber Frame Barns

TimberHomes has been building timber frame barns since our start. Building a new barn with us is a straightforward process, and results in an elegant building made from local timber. Timber frame barns fit the Northeast aesthetic, and are suited to its heavy snow and wind loads. Our typical barn procedure involves a rapid-fire week of raising and enclosing, and can bring the client's friends and family into the process to help speed up the raising.

Outdoor Spaces

Timber frames make beautiful, durable outdoor structures. These spaces range from simple rectangular buildings with gable roofs to complicated and enchanting structures for special settings. TimberHomes has built pergolas, pavilions, arbors, woodsheds, and more from local Vermont timber. We often use white oak and black locust, naturally rot resistant timber species, for these more exposed structures.

Kiosk Kits for Trailheads, Parks and Town Centers

We’ve been making kiosks since 2006. Hundreds of our classic trailhead kiosks are now in use, serving trail organizations, municipalities, state parks, and conservation commissions throughout the country. We now offer five different styles of kiosk, ranging from information portals for town centers to covered picnic shelters for trailside rest stops and open parks. Kiosk kits are hand-built in our shop and designed so that they can be raised by a small group.

Stairs & Fine Woodworking

Crafts and fine woodworking are important elements of finishing out a home with soul. TimberHomes has experience building a range of cabinetry and custom light fixtures for our clients. Staircases can be of rugged mortise and tenon construction and integrated right into the frame, or an elegant spiral design that maximize living space in a small home.
