Traditional timber frame house construction is a practical, environmentally sensitive building technique; it also has superior insulation properties, giving our clients a beautiful, energy efficient home. While timber framing can be used for a variety of structures, from small cabins to massive resorts, the most popular type of building we specialize in are timber frame houses.
Our timber frame houses are more than just beautiful places to live – they offer a link to the past. The centuries-old craft of timber framing combines beauty and craftsmanship with today’s expectations of comfort. Our timber houses are joined together using traditional wood joinery and oak pegs; this creates a beautifully crafted, fully visible, self-supporting wood framework.

The interiors of our timber frame houses are always unique. Whether you choose a light-filled, open, airy interior or a cosier atmosphere, your timber house will be a personalized work of art.
We can custom design timber houses in many different styles, creating anything from architecturally prominent and highly polished homes to subtle, rough-textured or rustic getaways.
Timber frame houses are flexible, and the exterior can be finished with a variety of materials, giving you the freedom to express your personality.
Our years of experience and passion go into crafting the timber frame houses we create. We have a team of experts to fulfill every part of the process; from the designing, milling and crafting, right up to the raising. All of the timbers that go into Hamill Creek timber frame houses are manufactured at our in-house sawmill, where logs are sorted, dried and milled. From there, our experienced Timberwrights carefully select each individual timber by hand and craft them into the timber house using the finest mix of old world techniques and modern technologies. The species of wood used affects the look and feel of a timber frame house.
Traditionally our frames are crafted from Douglas fir; however, we offer a wide range of species, such as larch, spruce and western red cedar, in a variety of finishes, to suit all budgets, tastes, and locations.
