The Perfect Shed

We named our design “The Perfect Shed,” it has the perfect proportions (discovered by the ancient mathematician Euclid) of the ‘golden ratio.’ Having designed sheds for 30 years, we think the size is perfect too. It is 10ft x 12ft – neither too big nor too small.” – David Stiles

Connecticut Post & Beam

For the DIY individual, we have extensive plans and connectors available; you can either use milled lumber from your own land or purchase economically from a local sawmill. For one who doesn’t have the time required for a DIY project, you can purchase the kit with everything needed to construct a post and beam frame, using the pre-slotted and pre-drilled white pine.” – Laurie Sharp

Ziggy Reports from The Timber Frame Workshop

Things are progressing smoothly for us here in Nacogdoches. We have fairly quickly moved on from layout to cutting the joinery for the Lake Naconiche timber frame pavilion. I personally haven’t spent much time around the more specialized timber framing power tools, and it’s been a sight to see…. and an experience to use them, too… continues…” – Ziggy

Timber Frame FabCab Kit House

FabCab utilizes a machine milled and pre-cut timber-frame structure which can be sent as a kit of parts (including the frame, wall panels, doors, windows, siding, as well as finishes and fixtures) to a customer’s building site, and erected / built by a licensed contractor. The noticeable quality of timber-frame construction sets these cabins apart from other kits and pre-fabricated structures on the market.” – Kent

A Cordwood & Timber-Framed Yurt

I’m a sucker for cordwood structures, and this one struck me as rather cool- from a guy, apparently, who is very well versed in the world/field of natural building- cob, adobe, etc. I also really dig the “leaning walls” in this tiny little house/out building (a seasonal one as evidenced by all the screening). Oh yeah, its timber framed too- and seemingly makes use of a recycled door and some salvaged windows (bonus points for Mr. Grossman there!).” -Derek “Deek” Diedricksen

Contemporary Curved Timber Tree House in Devon

This exciting, remarkable, contemporary structure is described as a ‘tree house’, although not strictly so as it is entirely self supporting. A very challenging site – a very steep slope strewn with large granite boulders. Constructed from Douglas Fir and braced with complex web of steel cables. The large sliding doors face into the tree canopy.” – Carpenter Oak.
