Traditional Timber Framing and Fine Carpentry
Traditional Timber Frame homes (sometimes called Post and Beam) are built to last. Completed with all traditional wooden joinery, without using nails or metal. They are stronger than conventional platform construction, and are more energy efficient and environmentally sound. Most timber frame homes have lasted for centuries, and sometimes even millenniums- truly standing the test of time, and passed from generation to generation.
Traditional timber frames can be built to your specific needs, hopes, and tastes with traditional & contemporary designs. We can incorporate recycled & antique timbers, if you wish. Because the construction is made solely of wood (although using less wood than conventional platform designs), the process is very green, for the environmentally conscious customers.
Whitetail Woodworking Inc. can build complete finished homes and barns, interior work, extensions or just the frames themselves, depending on your needs. We typically work from the initial concept design stage all the way through the raising of the frame and finish carpentry, although are happy to work around your requirements. We work out of Harpswell, Maine and throughout the midcoast region.
