The Team at Vermont Timber Works
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 designing and fabricating custom timber 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.
