Use a Kit For Your Addition

Most of our Design Build clients choose a custom design for their home or structure, but there are many who want to purchase one of our pre-designed timber frame kits. We can ship these kits to you, if you'd like to raise it yourself, or we can deliver and raise it for you. We can also add individual design elements to these frames to suit your needs.

We employ traditional mortice and tenon joinery tusk tenons, wedged dovetails, scarf joints, pegged half-laps, and bird-mouth joints. Place two or more kits side by side, offset, or add a shed to any face of the structure to vary the roof line. We have created these three cost effective frames to get you started but we are happy to design a structure around your specific needs. Contact us for more details.


These are our standard Hennin Post & Beam kits. We have a design to fit your needs and budget.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, as of January 1, 2019, many of the a la carte pricing on our timber frame kits will increase due to an increase in labor, matieral and operation costs.

Isaac Asimov wrote "Science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom." We have seen this play out countless times in residential construction: double pane windows with seals that failed within a few years creating 'obscurred glass', vapor barriers installed on the wrong side of the wall ...
