Roof Framing System

Play this video

Choose any combination of wall, floor and roof systems to suit your style and fit your budget.  Choose a framing style based on your desire for more visible natural wood, or one that allows brighter painted surfaces.  Like the exterior of our homes, the interior of your home can be designed to have a more traditional or contemporary style based on your framing style choices.  We will work with you to decide which framing system best fits your taste and budget.
