You are considering how to achieve optimal beauty through post and beam construction on your home or building, but where do you begin? Hybrid timber frame construction is a unique experience and one that should be memorable from planning and design to project completion.

To help you on your journey, we have developed some well-organized tools to maintain control of your project and work effectively with your entire team including your architect and builder. If you need architects and builders for your project, we are more than glad to recommend one of our many trusted partners.

Collaborative Preparation
For planning, we recommend that you begin by downloading the time-tested document, the 4 Step Process. This high-value document will place you at the helm of your project and provide the necessary steps to create your post and beam dream with the greatest of ease.

Defining what you truly want and need is a complex process. Post and beam construction, while stunning, is comprised of timbers that have weight requirements. Our clients have discovered that what they initially thought they wanted was not necessarily feasible or what they truly needed.

The Hybrid Timber Frame Process 
One way to expedite the planning of your project and ensure you can secure your place on our schedule is to schedule a 30 to 90 minute, complimentary brainstorming session. We recommend you also download the Design Style Quiz, our most comprehensive guide that offers the highest level of detail in planning, managing and executing your post and beam dream! The steps will help you protect your time and bottom line. These have been time-tested and include how to work with ATF, your architect and builder.

We encourage you to explore our work, learn about the 13 truss styles and 7 basic design styles to get the conversation started.

Our most commonly asked questions

Do you come visit my house or property?
After the first meeting which is typically at our shop we usually plan on taking a site visit, either for measurements, or just to get an overall feel of the property.
How much value will this add to my house?
Though value can be quantified many different ways, we’ve had builders tell us that they have seen a higher return on the homes with timber framing in a 30-50% higher return on the timbers.
Do you build the whole home start to finish?

One of our strengths is we know where we provide the best value, and that’s with Design and Timber Framing. By keeping our focus lasered in on those areas where we excel, we typically don’t do the whole construction start to finish.rty.

Do I need an architect or designer?

We want to be as flexible as possible and we value working with many different architects and designers. If you have a plan, or an architect that you would like to work with that is great, we will work as a team to help you get the timber look you would like. Some clients prefer a one stop and everything.

“I just wanted to thank Arrow Timber Framing for the outstanding job you did on my timber framed pavilion. I cannot tell you how much we enjoy the work of art that you designed, and the craftsmanship that you were able to put into our structure at our home.
