The timber frame construction process
Our design team will work closely with you to transform your vision into a beautiful and functional design. We are also happy to work with clients who already have finished plans and partner with other designers and contractors.
Selection of wood species is an essential step in the process. Color, grain pattern and structural properties are important considerations. Texture also plays a big role in creating a style and feel to the frame. We offer new hand-hewn, rough-sawn, and smooth dressed texture options. We can also incorporate century-old antique barn beams in the crafting of your frame.
With the design complete and the timber type and texture selected, the construction process can begin. The crafting of the timber frame, timber trusses, and other timber elements is the first step. This is the job of our crafting division, Southwest Log & Timber Works. Our talented team of artisans cuts and pre-assembles the timber components at our facility in North Fort Worth; sculpting, fitting, hewing, and preparing the timbers prior to the final assembly and raising at your building site.
The closing-in and finishing of your unique timber frame home is then undertaken and managed by our expert veteran Southwest Log Homes general contracting team. The end result is a finely crafted work of art; a timber frame home that will bring you beauty and function for generations.
