We have a detailed product line that is vast and full of individual components for all aspects of a home, both inside and out. Whether they are an option for a pre-existing design, for a project with a tight budget or to include a timber frame element in just the right places. Timber frame elements can also be integrated into log or stick frame structures, creating interesting visual appeal.

Brackets, trusses, entryways, roof systems, porches, balconies, living rooms, feature rooms, bay windows, carports, greenhouses, pergolas, right through to interior mantels. By joining a few timber frame components to any conventional frame you will create a "timber frame hybrid" which offers timber framing where it's appreciated most.

We can also create timber frame components which can be incorporated into new or renovated buildings built with other construction techniques:

  • Add-ons like sunrooms and "great rooms" 
  • Timber frame additions incorporated into new construction 
  • Timber roof systems 
  • Complete timber floor systems 
  • Timber supports for standard floor joists 
  • Timber used as a substitute to steel "I-Beams" or glue laminated beams

As an alternative to complete timber framed homes, CTF also offers custom structural timber framed trusses. These custom truss designs integrate well with most conventional as well as non-conventional building systems such as straw bale or rammed earth construction. The same time, care and craftsmanship is given to these trusses as exists in our complete homes.
