Woodhouse Timber Frame Seminars

The Log & Timber Home Show

Are you busy and can’t find the time to learn more about timber frame homes? We would like to invite you to attend one of our hour-long timber frame seminars at an upcoming home show near you. Our fall season of home shows and seminars has started – please see our schedule below.

At one of our seminars we’ll start with a brief overview of the steps required to design and build a timber frame and structural insulated panel system, for your home.  Then we’ll discuss the different approaches that are available to you such as: self designing your home, using pre-designed plans, or working with a professional designer, a builder-designer, or an architect. We’ll guide you through the various pros and cons of each of these approaches.

Our clients tell us that attending a planning session was an excellent investment of their time.  The result has been increased ease with the process and a greater confidence, comfort, and understanding of the steps involved in designing, planning and building their timber frame and SIP structural insulated panel home.
