Shelter Design Build ships frames all over the country and beyond. We've travelled as far as Virginia to raise them. Delivery is via our truck or common carrier for greater distances.

The frame and panels we've cut to your design at our shop in Maine are delivered to your site, along with any roofing material, windows, and doors you may have ordered. When we arrive, our crew assembles and encloses the structure within a matter of days. Clients, customers, and passersby often comment on the ease with which our crew raises and encloses a structure.

“What a project! To say we are impressed would be an understatement. Every time I thought I had to be thinking about some aspect of the project that might not get done as I envisioned, I discovered it was well planned and Shelter was way ahead of me! I came to the conclusion I was using an outmoded thought process designed for regular contractors who cannot be depended on. Shelter Design Build operates at a different level. How refreshing!”
-John and Ellie, Recent Satisfied Shelter Design Build Clients

Join us at any one of our sites throughout the year to see an assembly in person. Just call for locations and dates.


Our 8,000 square-foot, heated shop allows our crew to layout and cut frames year round in a controlled environment where accuracy and craftsmanship are standard.

Our design team will work with you to develop your design, then define it on the computer. A drawing is created for each unique timber in your frame, which is used by our joiners to shape the structure. We also offer a variety of pre-engineered frames from which to choose.
