Designing a Timber Frame Home with Hamill Creek
Designing an Ohio timber frame home with Hamill Creek is simple. If you aren’t exactly sure what you want, our design team will walk you through different timber framing options.
Floor Plans vs Custom Designs
The first thing you need to consider when building a house is whether you want a predesigned floorplan by Hamill Creek or a custom timber frame home. Depending on home size, material choices, and custom work, the prices of timber framing projects can vary greatly.
Once you have a rough idea of what you want your timber frame project to look like, you will work with Hamill Creek to get an estimate on paper. If the preliminary estimate falls within your budget, we will proceed to the next step by entering into a design contract and creating a precise model to determine the exact cost.
With your project clearly established, our team will get to work laying out the specific details for your timber frame. You can expect the following information in a Hamill Creek project proposal:
- Permit set of drawings for foundation, floor, framing, sections, windows, doors, electrical, and trim.
- Engineer seals on timber frame drawings.
- Ready-to-install timber frame kit with all installation hardware.
- Tongue and groove paneling to cover the roof and exterior soffits.
- Option for exterior wall system known as SIPS (structurally insulated wall panels) pre-cut with window and door openings, as well as electrical chases installed.
- Materials needed to complete your insulated roof assembly.
Building a House in Ohio – Choose Your Location
You can build your home with your own contractor, or under the guidance of a Hamill Creek team member. Our packages include permit drawings and timber frame engineering for any Ohio location and climate.
Generally speaking, your hired contractor is responsible for building the foundation and subfloor according to our plans. Next, your Hamill Creek kit would arrive and be installed by your construction crew. Finally, your general contractor would bring in all other trades, such as the roofer, plumber, and electrician, to complete your home.
