Timber Frame Entryway

Timber Frame Homes

Traditional timber framed homes and timber frame hybrid homes (built to look like true timber frames) offer amazing energy efficiency and soaring, open interior spaces. Some buildings created this way have stood for over a thousand years.

Timber frames are just what they sound like: large frames crafted from heavy timbers that form the structural support of the home. Since the roof and walls are self- supporting, this allows for high, open ceilings and large great room spaces. But the beautiful joinery is just as stunning in a cozy, smaller space.

Traditionally, the timber frame is finished by “infill”, or framed walls on the exterior of the frame. Prefabricated structural insulated panels (SIPs) are also an excellent option as infill for superior energy efficiency because they create a very tight building envelope.

On behalf of the project team at Donovan Brother we would like to thank you and your company employees for the outstanding job you did on our project.
Since the project has been completed we have received many compliments on your work. Specifically the third part log inspector noted that the logs on our project are “probably the most beautiful he has seen in his 40yr career.” Our team couldn’t agree more.

We appreciate your attention to detail and budget minded approach when it came to our project. Everything came together on schedule and turned out better then expected.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your team to other firms or utilize Caribou Creek on our future projects.

Doug Donovan, Donovan Brothers, Inc.

“…Our home is just beautiful – even better than the picture I had in mind when it was just a blueprint.”

Karen Tucker

“The single best investment that I have made in this project was to come to Bonners Ferry to meet your team and work with them on the final design details associated with my log home. Your people made the overall experience and product something that truly differentiates Caribou Creek.”

Bob Van Beber –
