Panelized Stick Framing
Interior and exterior walls, rafters, gables and floor systems are cut and assembled into panels in a controlled environment and assembled on site. This saves lumber normally damaged by rain or snow, totally eliminating 85% of wood scraps created in on-site building and reduces on site framing time by up to 80%.
We use beams, floor joists, subfloors and sheathing made of sustainable lumber supplies.
Post and Beam Framing
We are pleased to be associated with Brooks Post and Beam, one of the oldest and most respected timber framing companies in New England. Phil Brooks invented one of the first computer aided milling machines in the timber frame industry as well as a unique method of mortise and tenon joinery. Our partnership enables us to offer their unique blend of technology and old-world craftsmanship to our clients. Enclosing the frames with SIPS allow us to insulate these homes to the same high level of efficiency we use in all our projects.
We use only Low VOC paints and sealants.
Our primary insulation is cellulose, made from recycled newsprint along with selective use of spray foam and sheet foam.

These products and techniques are valuable additions to home construction methods, but rather than use a “one size fits all” approach, we use the building methods that will work best with your project and your budget.
