What is a Custom Timber Frame Home?

What is a custom timber frame home? Customization is an often-used word in home building, but what does Riverbend mean when using it? When we talk about customization, we talk in terms of degrees. This is because we understand that every homeowner’s vision is different. Therefore, whether you require only minor modifications, or opt for creating an entirely new design from scratch, customization is at the heart of your home.

Minor Modifications

Oftentimes, clients look through our website and find one design concept that simply stands out from all the others. And, that one floor plan concept needs only a few changes to be perfect. Riverbend designers have been making minor modifications like these for over 30 years. Whether it is relocating a wall for a larger living space, or adding a walk-out basement to match your unique property, modifications like these are minor in degree, and easily accomplished.

Extensive Modifications

At Riverbend, this degree of customization is the most common of the three. And, unlike minor customization, which relies on the overall structure of an existing plan, extensive customization is not so dependent on a pre-conceived structure. For example, if you find inspiration in two different floor plan concepts, extensive modifications allow you to bring them together. You enjoy freedom to relocate rooms, add or remove entire levels, and more, all while retaining the overall look of the design concept you love.

Complete Customization

With complete customization, Riverbend designers work with you from the ground up. Your timber frame home design is completely unique to you, and tailor-made to your lifestyle. There is no limit to this level of design; you may find inspiration from pictures and plans, but the end result is all your own. If you have a particular design vision, full customization makes that vision a reality in a completely one-of-a-kind timber home.

No matter what degree of customization you choose, you work with our architectural designers through the entire process. This ensures that your custom timber home meets your specific needs for budget, location, and style.
