Timber Frame Kits

With our timber frame kits, handy do-it-yourselfers will find they can save on labor while also arriving quickly at a dry, secure structure. From that point on, the pressure eases off, and you can chip away at detailed finish work as time allows. The essential architecture of these plans is already drawn, and assembly can be done by skilled buyers. Or, hire local contractors and save on the cost of a traveling timber frame crew. The DIY level is up to you! Brooks Post & Beam delivers a frame with unique, pre-drilled, draw-bored timber frame joinery. The same panels that snug up other Brooks Posts & Beam structures come with the frame.

Barn & Garage Kits

Choose the ideal structure for your barn and then the floor plan is up to you! You can modify our plans because the frame is the structure and the walls are literally only partitions. Importantly, our timber frames are designed and engineered for common northeastern snow and wind loads. We are happy to work with your engineer or consult with one of ours to determine if any local seismic, wind or snow load conditions exist that would require an increase in timber size, special joinery or hold-downs.

How A Timber Frame Kit Works

You can save thousands of dollars in labor by building your own home.

 

Some of our customers want the quality and value of a finely crafted timber frame home, but can’t afford to pay the high cost that many companies charge for such a project. By donating your own labor and “sweat equity,” you will have a beautiful home of the highest quality, but for a fraction of the price that others are charging.

We’ve all heard the old saying — “if you want something done right, you’d better do it yourself” — well, with a timber frame kit home from Brooks Post & Beam, you can do it yourself! There’s nothing in this world quite like the feeling of achievement and pride that comes from living in a home that you built yourself. We can help you realize that dream with an easy-to-assemble, precision-engineered home kit.

With a pre-cut timber frame and panel kit, you can build your own home at your own pace. Only have weekends available? No problem — the frame and panels go together much faster than conventional stick framing, and your home will be enclosed and weather-tight in a matter of days rather than weeks. After that you can complete the project at your own pace.

We deliver a completely pre-cut timber frame and panel system to your job site. There are no panel scraps, window cutouts, or other bulk waste items to worry about. There will be a small amount of scrap from the first- and second-floor framing, but other than packaging materials, there is very little waste generated by a home kit. Compare that to conventional stick framing, which routinely fills up large dumpsters with waste and scraps. Want to leave a small footprint? Consider a timber frame kit.
