Insist on Dreaming Creek.

Design Studio
Because of its many special & unique characteristics, timber frame construction requires special knowledge and experience during the planning stage. Dreaming Creek Timber Frame Homes offers full architectural design services. Our studio is staffed by trained professional designers & engineers who have many years of experience in designing and engineering timber frame structures.

Dreaming Creek's staff is experienced in working with architects, designers, individual owners, & contractors, to incorporate timber framing into a variety of many different sizes & types of structures. Our designers work out design & engineering aspects of the frame itself, as well as floor plans, interior and exterior sheathing systems, & the application of alternative energy systems in timber frame structures.

Our designers have created hundreds of timber frames. This experience allows them to design the structure to meet most of the anticipated structural requirements unique to your project. We have experience designing & building structures in many different environments including winds up to 135 mph, heavy snow loads, extreme slopes, & seismic conditions as high as Zone 4.

At Dreaming Creek we realize that your project is not only a financial investment, but an emotional one as well. Our team of engineers & designers work for you and with you to design your project... your vision & aspirations... a design that is uniquely reflective of you.

We exhibit annually at the Building Virginia Show sponsored by the Virginia Society of the American Institute of Architects. 

The Sawmill
Dreaming Creek's WoodMizer sawmill has the capability to produce timbers 45-feet & longer with widths up to 36-inches. To date the longest timber produced at our mill measured 12-inches by 18-inches by 52-feet. For timbers with widths greater than 36-inches we utilize our "sperber" chainsaw mill. This allows us the capability to produce timbers with exceptionally large widths.

Dreaming Creek's Show Home showcases boards with widths as great as 40-inches.

The Beamery
Our Floyd County facility is nestled in the Blue Ridge mountain region of Virginia, an area known for its natural beauty and wealth of talented artisans. The major expansion of our Floyd operations was completed in July 2002. A 23,000 square foot, state-of-the-art beamery and shop stands adjacent to our 4,200 square foot timber frame office and design studio. In addition to the benefits of increased productivity and efficiency, we are proud to have opened job opportunities in this part of southwestern Virginia thereby giving back to the community that has given so much support to us.

Authentic Joinery
After dreaming, planning and designing your timber frame, it is only fitting to use the finest timbers available. Our experienced mill personnel work the timbers and ship them to our beamery, where they are expertly tooled and prepared for assembly and raising. The ends of timbers are jointed and edges are chiseled by hand for a custom fit. All detailing is added to timbers before shipment.

The Finer Details
Dreaming Creek offers a wide variety of detailing to accentuate the beauty in your legacy project. From simple detailing to elaborate hand carving Dreaming Creek has the ability to help you "Create your Legacy"!
