Your Plans, Our Timber Frame Expertise

Whether you have fully developed architectural designs made for timber framing or are envisioning adding timber elements to existing plans, Arrow Timber Framing is ready to guide you. Our process begins with a comprehensive feasibility assessment to ensure your design style, investment, and expectations are all aligned with the potential timber frame for your plans. From there, we'll work closely with you to create a personalized timber design, considering your aesthetic preferences, structural needs, and budget. Our experienced craftsmen will then translate this design into reality using traditional joinery techniques, ensuring a structure that is both artistic and meticulously crafted to the highest standards. Let's explore how timber framing can turn your ideal floor plan into a stunning, one-of-a-kind reality.

Plan Analysis

Whether your architectural designs already showcase timber framing or you're envisioning adding its beauty and strength, our team is ready to help you realize your vision. We offer specialized services tailored to your timber framing project:

Design Integration: If timber framing is already part of your architectural design, we'll meticulously analyze the plans to:

  • Review timber design and potentially suggest tweaks to match the timbers to the overall desired look

  • Ensure structural integrity and optimize joinery techniques

  • Provide expert advice on timber species and finishes to complement the existing design

  • Create detailed shop drawings for precise fabrication

Design with Timber in Mind: If your project doesn't currently include timber framing, we can:

  • Assess the design's suitability for incorporating timber framing elements

  • Collaborate with your architect/designer to implement timber framing in key structural or aesthetic areas

  • Develop a timber frame design that seamlessly integrates with the overall architectural style

Consulting and Collaboration: Throughout the process, we provide:

  • Structural engineering consultations for safe and code-compliant timber frame configurations

  • Guidance on blending the existing architecture with the timber framing, such as extending overhangs, matching gutter, or resizing stone columns to ensure balance and hierarchy with the design

  • Project management support to ensure smooth coordination with other trades

Our goal is to help you create a timber frame structure that aligns with your architectural vision, meets structural requirements, and showcases the inherent beauty and craftsmanship of timber. We're amazed by the flexibility of this building technique and are sure there is an elegant solution for anyone's needs.
