The Timber Frame Building Process


Crafting Your Timber Frame Home

Your frame will be the highlight of your home. For that reason, we take great pride in both the quality of our craftsmanship and the care of your timbers. Our experienced timberwrights will handcraft your frame, applying traditional mortise and tenon joinery, and then carefully prefinish the wood of your choice.

We also offer such timber embellishments as curved braces, chamfered edges, pendants, and fine detailing. We can work with you to give your home a rustic or more contemporary look depending on the style of wood and finish you select.

Ordering Your Insulated Panels
After we have completed both the home and the timber frame design we will begin to work closely with Entercept for the design and fabrication of your panels. The panels will arrive to the job site pre-cut to your custom specifications, including window and door openings as well as chases for electrical wiring.
Frame-Raising & Enclosure
Blue Ox offers full frame erection and enclosure services, which include the raising of your frame, application of tongue and groove ceilings, and the installation of your insulated panels.

Completion of the Home
Once your timber frame is raised and enclosed, your local builder will resume construction with the installation of your mechanical systems (electrical, plumbing, and HVAC) and applying both the interior and exterior finishes to complete your home.
