At Atlantic Timberframes, we provide the option of timber frame kits. A timber frame home kit is a hand-crafted, timber frame home delivered to your site location. This approach requires an experienced builder that can erect the structure for you.
The idea of a home kit is nothing new. It began over 100 years ago when a company called Aladdin Homes began offering a home kit package. It wasn't a timber frame home kit, but was based on pre-cut timber consisting mostly of 2x4 and 2x8 framing lumber. The idea of a pre-built, "packaged" home concept worked and a small company called Sears, Robuck & Company jumped into the business in 1908 and sold around 70,000 house kits through their mail-order Modern Homes program.
A timber frame home kit provides you with a lower cost option, assuming you have local expertise available that can erect the timber frame for you at a lower cost. If you are considering this approach, be sure to talk with us so we can help you evaluate your local costs to assure your desired savings are realistic.
