Take 4 scissor trusses and call me in the morning.


Oh and you better take some purlins too.

There, there, feel better?


Timber Frame decisions can be stressful.  It’s certainly an investment that absolutely adds warmth to the space.

Totally worth it, in our opinion BUT…

You don’t have to have a full timber frame, sometimes an accent with timber is all that’s needed, or wanted.

We understand.

You want big? You want small? Something in between?

We can do that.

The 4 Scissor Trusses shown above would help create a wonderful great room area, don’t you think?  They can brace on conventionally framed walls and viola!  This truss design visually adds height, which I love.

Progress: The Truss Install.

This hybrid timber frame project is complete!

This great room is something else, very happy with the finish.

Remember where we started?

We enjoyed working with Westall Architects on this one.  Initially contacted by them and we stayed strong through the bidding processes while a general contractor was chosen.  Nice when that works out.

Anyone up for a game of pool?

I’ll play pool anytime under these heavy timber trusses.

This stunning project had a great team, Ghidorzi Architects & Schutlz Building.  Excellent job!

Timber framing combined with conventional framing was chosen for this commercial building.

Traditional joinery and steel joinery.

Ok, tour is over, time to shop!  Super fun Badger Balm CAP and cool T-shirt for my girls.

Wonderful project, thank you to a great team.

Douglas fir glulams arches joining natural douglas fir timbers and conventional framing, very pretty.  Client said on the lake…they were not kidding!
