The Team at Vermont Timber Works

Vermont Timber Works Employees in front of the Company Sign

 

Vermont Timber Works began in 1987 designing and building homes from start to finish as Friant & Kelleher Builders Inc. Since then we have become more and more specialized. Starting in the year 2000, we have focused on timber framing and manufacturing post and beam frames exclusively as a timber frame contractor. Everything we do is a team effort, and all of our employees are key to that effort every step of the way. The salespeople act as the client’s liaisons, the estimator works with the engineer and designer, and the production team gets it done. Everyone has an open-door policy, questions are asked and answered continuously to provide a seamless process and an elegant product.
