Timber Frame Info
The smell of wood, old country comfort, open spaces, soaring ceilings or something different are just a few things that draw people to timber framing. "I just want to have timbers somewhere in my home" is a comment we hear so often. While it may not be for everyone, those that want some timber in their home have come to us to see if we can turn their dream into reality.
How much will a Timber Frame cost
Everyone always wonders about the cost of a timber frame structure. There are many variables to keep in mind when pricing out a project. Design (simple vs complex), style (mortise & tenon vs metal connectors), structural vs non-structural, timber species, timber finish, amount of timber, specialty items, etc will all affect the cost of a timber frame.
Manufacturing the Timber Frame
From the beginning, PineRidge Timberframe has always prided itself on its craftsmenship and attention to detail. Starting out in an old barn - we hand cut every timber for our projects. As we gradually became busier we had to find a way to cut more timbers in less time. This is when we graduated to a CNC Hundegger to do the initial cutting of the timbers. All finish work for joinery, chamfering & planing is still completed by hand.
Big or Small - we do it all
PineRidge Timberframe has provided many homeowners with Gable Details, Entry Porches, Decorative Beams, Trusses, Hybrid Frames and Full Frames. If your dream is to have timbers in some fashion within your home - we will work with you to see what will work within your budget.
