Craft Is The New Green

By blending the centuries-old craft of timber framing with modern energy performance and technology, we create homes that embody our values and mission as a company. We build throughout the USA. This is a home in the Hidden Valley just outside of Sandpoint, Idaho, where our shop is located.
Craft Is The New Green

Collin Beggs Design. Build. Timber Framing

By blending the centuries-old craft of timber framing with modern energy performance and technology, we create homes that embody our values and mission as a company. We build throughout the USA. This is a home in the Hidden Valley just outside of Sandpoint, Idaho, where our shop is located.

In forested areas, timber framing has the potential to provide a sustainable, local and ecological approach to modern building practices. It is a building method with centuries of structures in use, proving its longevity. This ability to last for centuries reduces the amount of resources extracted over its lifetime and improves the community where it resides through its lasting beauty, integrity and strength.

This home has an ICF foundation, SIP wall and roof system, plus FSC certified and found timbers throughout. This will be a sustainable home for the next 400 years. See more project photos here.
