Timber Frame Home Costs
Fine, Hand-Joined Timber Frame Craftsmanship
Choosing to work with Sweet Timber Frames means choosing to work with a timber frame builder that builds in the traditional, hand-joined timber frame techniques. Whether we are buiding a stand-alone timber frame or a "foundation to finish" complete timber frame home, we handcraft every timber that goes into your structure. This high-quality craftsmanship costs more than a timber frame kit, but results in a much finer, quality end result.
We highly recommend you download and read the Timber Frame Business Council Consumer Guide, to better understand what is involved in building (and pricing) your custom timber frame home.
Timber Frame Design
Sweet Timber Frames can build your timber frame from our existing in-house plans, or we can design a completely custom home. We generally design most of our clients' homes in-house, but it is not uncommon for us to collaborate with a clients architect when building a larger more complex home. The size of your timber frame and the detail involved in the design will affect the ultimate cost of your home.
Timber Frame Construction
Once you have settled on the size and design of your timber frame, you must decide how much of the work you would like us to complete. Sweet Timber Frames can build the stand alone frame, build and erect the frame with an enclosure, or complete a "foundation to finish" turnkey home.
Other Details that Affect Your Timber Frame Cost:
• curved braces
• planed and oiled timbers
• other species of wood
• a crane for raising the frame
• a crew to erect the frame (paid per day)
• the distance from your building site to our workshop
