Your Timber Frame Journey Starts Here.



Specializing in Timber Frame | Post & Beam Architectural Design

Since 1989, Timberworks Design has been at the forefront of the Timber Frame & Post & Beam architectural design industry, working with hundreds of clients across North America and beyond. 

Our mission is to create spaces that seamlessly blend the warmth of wood with cutting-edge design concepts, resulting in structures that not only stand strong against the elements but also tell a story through their unparalleled craftsmanship. Timber frame construction is more than just a building method; it's a form of artistry that allows us to connect people with nature, history, and the elegance of wood in its purest form.

We have honed our expertise in every facet of timber construction, from traditional post-and-beam designs to contemporary timber innovations. Sustainability is also a responsibility we dont take lightly.  With the timber frame providing the primary but isolated structural element, we can create some of the tightest building envelopes in the industry. 

Join us on a journey through the world of timber frame architecture, where tradition meets innovation and where every structure is a testament to the enduring beauty of timber. Welcome to Timberworks Design, where we transform dreams into timber-framed reality.

Design Expertise 

Designing a timber frame home has many similarities to standard stick-built construction while simultaneously being very different, following its own set of rules. This could be working with the structural integrity of other species of wood, such as pine vs. dug fir, to how we carry heavy point loads through the foundation, as well as the thermal envelope detail package. The essence of timber framing is exposing the structural elements of the home, which is why with our 30+ years of timber frame experience, you can rest assured knowing that we will have your project designed by one of the most experienced design team in the country. We will work with you to create a custom timber frame home that suits your vision, style, and budget. We will also ensure that your timber frame home is energy-efficient, durable, and environmentally friendly.

Independent Design

Most timber frame design services are part of a timber frame manufacturing company.  This means you must commit to a specific timber frame company to some degree before starting the design process, resulting in a loss of leverage when comparing companies.


Our relationship with you is one that can be independent of any timber frame company, allowing you to contact multiple timber framers with a design in hand and to deal with each of them on an equal and informed basis.
