Timeless Homes

There’s an intangible quality to homes that stand the test of time. The texture and colors of organic building materials, proper solar orientation, a building that blends with the shape of the surrounding landscape—all new homes we build start with a design that attends to these timeless principles.

Energy Efficiency

TimberHomes is committed to energy efficiency. We commonly surpass Energy Star Standards, constructing net-zero buildings and off grid homes. We use the latest in building science to get the most out of insulation and air sealing materials. However, energy efficiency is not enough. Visit our Better Walls and Roofs page to learn more about how we’re pushing the envelope on high performance, low-impact buildings.

A Streamlined Process

TimberHomes is a design/build company. This business structure sets the stage for clear communication and a fluid conversation from the first phone call, through design and construction, all the way through to a finished home. The designer is often on site running the crew. Our building process informs our blueprints, and our designs are executed as drawn.

Clear Communication is Key

Quality of Space

We favor quality of space over quantity of square footage. We do not build the biggest house within your budget, but the one that’s most nurturing. With thoughtful use of proportion and insightful design, we build small homes that feel at once spacious and cozy.

Character and Soul

The level of craftsmanship that we bring to our timber frames is also brought to our finished homes. Our floor plans are designed with the same intention and care we bring to joinery. We choose finishing details that make soulful and heartwarming homes. In a world of cookie cutter construction, we build houses that have all the endearing qualities of a homemade gift.
