Architectural Design Services

You may already have an idea of what your finished timber home will look like, but before you can start to make that dream a reality, you need a plan. You can choose between two paths when creating your custom timber home design.

  • Riverbend’s award-winning in-house design team will work with you in creating a design, either from our portfolio of design concepts or completely from scratch.
  • Or, Riverbend will work with a design from an architect or designer with whom you are already collaborating.

Working with Riverbend’s Architectural Designers

Riverbend employs professional, architectural designers who can create an amazing plan that fits your lifestyle, location, and turnkey budget goals. Our team of in-house designers will work with you to plan or modify your custom design to create the timber frame home of your dreams.

Work with Riverbend to:

  • Create a new design from scratch
  • Modify one of our existing floor plan concepts

Riverbend’s Design Process

Designing to Your Budget

When you work with the design team at Riverbend Timber Framing, our in-house designers will closely partner with you and walk you through each step of the process. It’s not enough that your home achieves the look you want, we also make every effort to design a home within the turnkey budget that you set. We work directly with you to design your home to your budget,  discussing every aspect of your design that affects the cost of the home so you can plan accordingly.

Designing to a budget

Working with Your Architect

If you already have a design from your architect or designer, Riverbend can work with these outside drawings in two ways depending on the level detail included on the plans.

Dimensioned Drawings

If your plans already include timber material dimensions, Riverbend can create a modeled structure and a firm price quote for the finished timber materials shipped to your build site. The finished materials are created by the same in-house team of experienced artisans and are the same quality you expect from Riverbend Timber Framing.

Design Consultation Agreement

If your original design does not include a timber frame or the included timber frame does not include dimensions, you will sign a Design Consultation Agreement (DCA). For a minimal cost per square foot, we will work with you and your designer to create a timber frame structure based on the concept that is provided. Then, we will provide you a firm price quote for the materials based on our drawing.
