Mill Creek offers a means of creating a timber frame home tailored to your requirements, yet based on timbered structural components which we have used and perfected over decades of design and development with hundreds of homes. Our engineered timber frames give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your frame house exceeds all structural requirements. The quality of the craftsmanship and years of experience that are applied to your home ensures years of enjoyment.
Vertical timber posts are joined with horizontal beams to create a time-tested timber frame to which the exterior walls and roof are attached to create a thermal envelope. The timber frame itself is completely exposed to the interior within and serves as the structural shell of the home.
Because the timber post design bears the weight of the structure, design possibilities are practically unlimited, allowing more architectural freedom and creativity. Custom timber frame homes are something we can design, either based on the plans below or designed completely from scratch.
Our beautiful timber frames are engineered to time-tested standards and adaptable for use in any variety of sizes and configurations meeting the most intensive load conditions.
As you look through our standard library of post and beam home designs, the flexibility of a Mill Creek system will become apparent. The home designs included are some of our most popular and you may find your need precisely, or you may desire to modify to some degree—enlarge or reduce dimensions, change the floor plan, add a wing, porch or decks or take away.
You may prefer the exterior of one design and the floor plans of another with a better square foot layout for your family’s needs. If you desire, we can always work with you to incorporate the Mill Creek timber work into an entirely original vision.
Building timber post homes and commercial buildings is our passion. Our team of designers brings their decades of experience to work with your contractors to make the design process as easy as possible. We are also familiar with each step of the building process. We keep this in mind as we design your home, to make sure you get the design you love with the least number of building headaches and with the fastest build completion time.
Log Cabin and Unique Designs
A timber frame structure is compatible with a log cabin home style. So if you are seeking a more nostalgic look, we have you covered. Some of our Mountain style plans offer a more rugged look without going 100% log cabin — if you want something that is in-between.
Additionally, many of our clients seek a hybrid timber frame custom home. These hybrid constructions that incorporate parts with the exposed woods and completes parts of the house with more traditional mediums.
We also work with commercial buildings, such as golf course and wedding lodge creation. Our Commercial timber frame building designs are sought after, and we’re proud to offer a higher level of care and customization than our competitors to ensure your finished product matches your business goals.
