Constructing A Home

By Sandy Connolly on May 12, 2015

This post covers some of the decisions a client makes when they decide to build a timber frame home.

One of the first decisions that needs to get made is whether the client wants help from a Construction Management Company or to take on the project for themselves.

In this example, we are going to talk about a project where a construction management company was involved.The client chose to enlist the help of Bonin Architects (their management choice), because they were new to the area.

Bonin Architects is a wonderful example. Their firm offers everything needed to start your project, manage it throughout, and make sure the final home is fabulous.

One of the most rewarding parts of a timber frame project is seeing the frame get raised. Check out the time-lapse video below of a timber frame raising!

In the midst of the project, you will be in touch with your construction management team to talk about things that come up along the way.

By the end of the project, you will have a home to love! Below are some examples of homes for happy clients.

This one has a beautiful interior with hand hewn beams.
