    About Great Country Timber Frames

    In 2015, we started our sister company Great Country Timber Frames to serve the timber frame home and commercial project market. Building on a 30-year tradition of hard work and craftsmanship, we designed, engineered, and built our 17,000+ square foot manufacturing and design facility in Ellington, CT in 2015.

    Housed within the facility is a state-of-the-art CNC timber processing machine. The CNC machine cuts mortise & tenon joinery with extreme precision. When timbers are joined together with wood connections, as is the case in true timber-framed buildings, the more precise the joinery, the stronger the frame. In an effort to maintain a “green” facility, waste from the machine, including sawdust and wood scraps, are transported via a dust collection system and compressed into bio fuel briquettes called “Timber Pucks.”

    Customer Testimonial

    It has been a real pleasure working with such a wonderful team. Jerry did a fantastic job with our order, patiently answering our many questions and laying everything out perfectly. Diane’s handling of the delivery helped to make the process go smoothly.

    I particularly wanted to commend the men who delivered and installed our shed.

    I have had many people working on the house and in the yard, but I’ll always remember these two as the best. Professional, efficient, and possessing a rare work ethic. Those of us who watched them in action were truly amazed. You are so very fortunate to have such a dedicated duo working for you. They do you proud; represent the company oh-so well.

    By my calculations it must have been a nineteen hour day. So I realize that they had an exceedingly long and tiring day, way beyond my endurance; but throughout they were helpful to us, good-natured and agreeable. No complaints. I never saw them take a break despite the hard work and stifling heat. They finished when it was getting quite dark yet persevered with the same devotion they showed from the start.

    It is hard to find meaningful words to convey appreciation for the attention to detail that was paid when working with you, construction of this beautiful shed, incredible installation.

    People will start to ask me about the shed, I’ll make sure to point them in your direction.

    Thank you!
