Timber Framed Structures for Parks, Trails, & Public Spaces

Quality Construction With Local Resources

Hand Crafted from All-Natural Local Resources

We're proud of the high quality craftsmanship and durable materials we offer in these timber frame kits. Throughout New England and beyond, we've helped bring the beauty of traditional wooden structures into the public sphere along bike paths, trail networks, shorelines, schools and town centers.

These folks are masters of their craft, and consummate professionals. They are responsive and easy to work with. [We've] contracted Timberhomes to build numerous picnic shelters and kiosks.... The structures look and function beautifully. You can rest assured that this company stands behind its product. — Jonathon Weber/Local Motion (a Vermont Bicycle Advocacy Group)

Timber Frame Kiosks

We’ve been making kiosks since 2006. Hundreds are now in use, serving trail organizations, municipalities, state parks, and conservation commissions throughout New England and beyond. Most units come as kits and can be assembled and installed with a small group of people. They look elegant and fitting in any natural setting, and will give decades of service.

Timber Frame Pavilions

We love outdoor gathering spaces, and offer our timber frame pavilions as a versatile and attractive option for parks, camps, and other public spaces. Built from a mix of locally- and regionally-sourced wood, our pavilions offer robust shelter for picnics and outdoor events. Our frames are cut to order to suit any site and we're always happy to consider customization with you. These pavilions can be raised with minimal on-site time by a small crew of us within the Northeast and beyond.

Park Benches

We originally designed our Picnic Shelters for rest areas on the Lake Champlain Bike Path. Offering the shelter of a pavilion over an inviting picnic table, this stand-alone unit is attractive, durable and yet able to be moved to allow for annual maintenance. The timber frame joinery allows for simple installation by volunteers, and makes for a unique picnic spot.

Timber Frame Picnic Shelters

Our benches are built for comfort, heft, and good looks. Joining wood and stone, the Boulder Bench was originally designed for a series of parks on flooded land that FEMA built in the wake of Hurricane Irene in 2011. We were grateful to be a part of that recovery, and continue to offer these benches as places to rest or socialize. Built as a single unit, our benches are ready to be set in place, where they will stay put for many years.
