High Country Timberframe is a timber frame and specialty woodworking company located in Northwest North Carolina. We specialize in providing the residential and commercial building industry with quality timber frame homes, structures, roof systems, trusses and wood components. Serving the building industry since 1997, we are able to offer our clients our extensive knowledge and services including timber frame design, engineering, fabrication and complete raising/installation services nationwide. We work with builders, architects and home owners to provide a pleasant experience integrating timber framing into their design ideas. We take great pride in the unique projects we are able to help create.

Small enough to offer personalized service for your individual home or commercial timber frame project, yet, large enough to design, fabricate, and install the most complex timber system or frame, we place emphasis on not just great customer service and the finished product but on the relationships we develop along the way.    Read More

Client Comments

"Right now Rebecca and I don't know how to describe our entire experience working with HCTF....but we will, and we'll need advice on that. From the moment we wandered into your shop almost a year ago until now, it has been an absolute pleasure on a personal level and a thoroughly satisfying experience on a professional level. To single out individuals would be unjust to all others at HCTF.

It occurs to us that we can recognize that gratitude in the form of a letter to a local/industry business organization. Let us know. We're not doing HCTF any favors here; its rightfully earned.

"The crew at High Country Timberframe & Gallery Woodworking Co is a talented, experienced and creative group. My husband and I used this company to build our timber frame horse barn a few years ago. Having seen their work previously, they were our first choice of builders, and we were not disappointed.

From working on the original design of the barn to completing the project, this company proved to be responsive and timely, and they always kept up a good line of communication. Their skills are top-notch, and we could not be more pleased with the final outcome. And, it's horse-approved!"
