Pricing for Millwork, Timber frames, and other services—

Timber Framing Our Operations Manager is also a professional engineer, with 20 years of experience designing timber and wood frame structures to do our design work. We can simply advise you if you want to do it yourself, we can do the design and provide you with working drawings, or we can cut and deliver a frame to you. We can also provide timbers if you're wanting to undertake one of the most rewarding experiences in your life: cutting and erecting your own timber frame! Please contact us for pricing.

Custom sawing policies:
Allowance for waste-- Don’t worry about that unless you're interested in having your own lumber custom milled. Just place the order for the moulding, flooring, paneling, or trim you need. Specify the units (typically lf—or sq ft for flooring.) Conversion rates will be taken care of by your friendly wood workers!
...For those curious sorts, FAS is expected to have an 83% conversion rate, 1C has 67%, 2C has 50%, and 3C has 33%. This is why the lumber with fewer knots is worth more…unless you like what some consider “defects” as showing beautiful character...which we do!
