At Niemela Design “cut by hand” isn’t just a catchphrase. It is the unequaled, unrelenting attention we pay to quality craftsmanship and aesthetic detail that intuitively reveals the natural elegance of each hand sculpted timber on display throughout your residence.
Whether you’re considering a new custom timber frame or a hybrid that incorporates classic elements such as timber frame trusses, our master builders lay out and hand cut every piece of joinery in our shop.
In addition to preserving both architectural and structural integrity, our precision craftsmanship creates a distinctive timber frame home that radiates grace, durability and the ancient continuum of nature throughout the seasons.
Niemela Design is a member of the Timber Framers Guild and is proud to follow in the footsteps of the builders that have shaped these proven timber framing techniques over centuries.
However, the state-of-the-art software, tools and equipment used by Niemela Design and our reputable subcontractors, is essential to ensure that the architecture and engineering of your custom timber frame is of exceeding professional quality.
The design and building process at Niemela Design is meant to be collaborative and rewarding from start to finish. We are highly skilled in a variety of 3D design and architectural softwares to expertly create floor plans that meet your exacting standards and individual preferences.
Whether you are working directly with Niemela Design or with another architect, our cohesive design, planning and construction expertise results in an exquisite timber frame structure that transforms itself, naturally, into a daily sanctuary or idyllic vacation getaway.
