Timber Framing for Today

Timber Framing for Today

As you know, our Dream Catcher Trail design was recently featured in Mountain Living. One of the defining features of the home’s architecture is its timber frame, or wooden structural support system. The historic framing technique is at once beautiful and incredibly functional as well, but this traditional craft has virtually disappeared from most modern buildings.

Our friends at Three Elements Timberworks, who designed and installed the timber framing on the Dream Catcher Trail project, have helped modernize timber framing techniques for today’s market with 3D computer modeling, the use of licensed structural engineers, and state-of-the-art power and hand tools.
