Whether you are building a small barn or outdoor pavillion, full timber frame home or a hybrid home with select timber frame areas, the Cowee Mountain Timber Framers design team can work with you in designing your custom residential timber frame. From a fully drafted floor plan to a simple concept/sketch that you have been forming over time, we can work with you and your ideas to produce a custom timber frame design meeting your aesthetic and/or economic needs. From planed and chamfered douglas fir to rough sawn eastern white pine, we can help you find the best possible wood species, finish, and embellishments, best suited for your project. Architects and general contractors appointed by home owner. Engineering always recommended by Cowee Mountain Timber Framers.


We cut frame at a time. We work primarily with green timber, both planed and rough sawn, and can cut frames fram a number of wood species including Oak, Eastern White Pine, Yellow Pine, Cypress, Douglas Fir, and Cedar. Our shop can perform chamfering, curved bracing, and other decorative embellishments to your frame. To make our frames cost efficient, our apprenticeship program exchanges labor for education, helping to reduce the labor costs of our frames. Homebuilders/contractors also have the opportunity to have their frames cut at a reduced cost during one of our quarterly workshops.
