Timber Frame House




One of the pleasures of the construction business is to meet with clients who have plans for a new house. In this case they already had a lot in Bonney Lake and had applied for a building permit. The challenge here was the construction of a “hybrid” timber frame house.


The house was designed by the client’s son-in-law to meet their specific needs. He worked closely with us during the initial construction phase. Meetings with the clients helped us determine the schedule and finances so we were able to complete a contract.

The phases of the construction are listed below. Click on each phase to view the construction progress.

We built the garage first to be used for storage and a temporary workshop for cutting and fitting the beams, posts and braces.
The home construction started with radiant heat coils and plumbing in a concrete slab. Exterior walls were then constructed and lifted into place.
Here is the hybrid part that includes traditional and timber frame construction.
The exterior of the project was next. Installation of new windows, sheathing, house wrap, siding and roof shingles. The exposed rafter beams were covered with car-decking, insulation, sheathing and compositon roofing.
Installation of doors and millwork, trim, varnish woodwork, paint walls, install cabinets, tile, fixtures, hardwood flooring stairs and railings.
