The Woodhouse® Difference is in the DetailsWoodhouse logo

Rosebeam Timber Frames is proud to partner with the industry’s leading manufacturer of predesigned and custom timber frame homes: Woodhouse®.

Although each custom Woodhouse timber frame home is unique, there are certain elements that they all share. These include our unrivaled expertise in joinery, custom home construction, our unmatched design experience, our attention to detail and the completeness of our package, and our lifetime transferable warranty. When you combine all these elements, they add up to make Woodhouse® a unique company, too.
