California Timber Frame Homes
The diversity of The Golden State requires a flexible, creative timber frame company with the experience to build your dream timber home to meet both your needs and building codes. Thanks to Riverbend’s 32 years of experience creating custom timber frames, we have what it takes to design and manufacture the California timber frame home that suits your site, style and budget.
We know the energy prices and cost of living are higher in California than most states, that is why our structural insulated panels (SIPs) and our promise of energy efficiency make our timber homes the right choice for your location.
Featured California Locations
The look and feel of a traditional timber frame home fits right into any of the diverse areas within the state of California. Here are a few places in California that we love to build in.
The Bay Area
The San Francisco Bay Area offers everything from arts and culture to outdoor adventure, as well as stunning sites for your timber frame home. Along the coast, communities south of San Francisco including Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel offer the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean and a relaxed, beach-town atmosphere. Inland, communities like Merced, Modesto and Lodi enjoy a mild climate, beautiful views, and easy access to the ocean, mountains and some of the nation’s most renowned parks.
Located on the beautiful Northern California coast about 20 miles south of the Oregon border, Crescent City offers stunning scenery and an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. Your majestic California timber home will fit right in here, where you’ll enjoy a mild climate and “neighbors” including Redwood National Park and the Smith River National Recreation Area.
Big Bear Lake
This four-season resort community is surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest, just 25 miles northeast of the city of San Bernardino and 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Your Big Bear timber home will put you at the heart of laid-back luxury, with an abundance of shopping, spas and restaurants, from diners to fine dining, as well as myriad recreational opportunities year-round.
Oceanside is a classic California beach community complete with unlimited water sports and recreation. Build your California timber home here for a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle, and for the casual spirit that made Southern California’s beach culture legendary.
