In an effort to help maintain the beautiful American wildlife and forest, we will plant 5 native trees in your honor for every timber structure you purchase. This is just our little way to help preserve and improve the beautiful forests for future generations!


Dovetail kitOur timber frame shade structures are hand crafted, custom kits. Every kit comes sanded, edges are routed, and is notched and finished with your choice of stain or paint (or can be left bare). These kits are made from high quality materials including #1 or BTR Douglas Fir and #2 or BTR Cedar (both rough saw, unless specified in the notes), and come with fasteners, plugs, post bases, and easy to follow instructions (they even include touch up stain/paint).

We offer several Pergola styles including our famous Dovetail jointed Pergolas, and the amazing Kingston. Our Gazebos and Pavilions also feature the Dovetail joint, which provides exceptional strength and aesthetics (click on the Dovetail link to learn more about the benefits of the Dovetail joint).


Every timber frame structure we make is customized for our clients. One way you can customize your structure is with a unique end cut. Below are our popular end cuts:
