    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.”

    Mark K. is incredible. He is knowledgeable, easy to speak with and understanding. He is one heck of a representative for your company. The site work, construction and overall experience can't be touched by any vendor in your industry! WOW! is the only word that comes to mind. I don't usually thank people who take my money but THANK YOU!! I will also be purchasing a pool house in the spring!!
