Timber Frame Craftsmanship

To Riverbend, your home is more than a structure. It is a source of artistic pride. Each one of our PerfectFit™ Ready-to-Build or custom home designs is designed and built to provide you with a home of which can be proud for years to come. We accomplish this through the use of only the highest-grade materials and the best, most experienced people. While the timbers that create the frame of your home provide natural beauty and warmth, it’s up to the craftsman that cut and hone the timbers to showcase that beauty to its best advantage. Riverbend expects nothing less than quality craftsmanship in everything we do, so rest assured that we pay the utmost attention to it.

Rooted In Tradition, Designed for Modern Living

Building upon nearly half a century of timber frame industry leadership, we are melding traditional techniques of crafting timber frame homes with striking modern elements to create a living space that is both organic and vibrant. Every truss tells a story, each mortise and tenon connection has its own character, and metal accents–be they modern or rustic in look and feel–add a modern twist that is reflective of today’s trends. Through the tradition of timber framing, our homes exude the Artistry of Design.

Signature Timbers

We believe that the timbers in your home should be a signature element. Whether it is a complex truss system overhead or the space where a post meets the cross beam in your kitchen, each timber lends character to your home. That is why we design the timber configuration to complement the overall architectural style of your home. In addition, metal accents, in the form of braces and chords, are incorporated to add a unique flare to many of our designs.

Timber Species

The beauty of your timber frame home is a direct extension of the quality of the wood used and the precision of its manufacturing. At Riverbend, we can use Oak, free of heart center Douglas fir, or other species to create your signature home.

Oak is a dense hardwood that has been used in traditional timber frame homes for centuries. Its sheer strength enables builders to create more delicate connections. Additionally, many clients are looking for the character imparted by the knots and grain-figuring of oak.

With our years of experience, we have found that free of heart Douglas fir also provides our clients with the level of craftsmanship they demand. With its complex grain structure, Douglas fir is less prone to checking and twisting. Douglas fir is also strong, flexible, and available in a variety of sizes.
