Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where do I start?

® home currently under construction.  You can call our office at  916-624-9725 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., appointments can be made on the weekend if needed.

Q: How much will a Timberframe home cost?
A: Of course there are many factors that will determine the overall cost of your home, such as the location of your home site, the county/city permit fees, and the many components that are available to build into your home.  We will sit down with you prior to signing any contracts and go over step by step your Free Cost Estimate Checklist to make sure that you have all of the information necessary to make a decision as big as building a custom home. 

Q: How are Timberpeg®Homes Energy Efficient?
A: There are many factors that can make a home Energy Efficient - starting with the construction.  Timberpeg® Post & Beam Homes typically use SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) in order to give solid insulation as opposed to 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 framed walls with conventional insulation.  The SIPs also offer a sound barrier creating a comfortable & peaceful indoor climate. 

Timber Frame homes use significantly less lumber than conventional "stick built" homes and keep construction waste to a minimum.  You can learn more about "Green Building Timber Homes" here.

Q: Can you help me find a custom home site?
A:
Yes!  Michael Bouchard is a licensed Real Estate Broker and can do a personalized search for a custom home lot that will not only fit the home you wish to build but will also fit the needs of you and your family.  

Q: Do you have plans available?
A:
We have a library of plans available to choose from or use as a "jumping off point" to create a home that will work best.  We also have an in-house designer as well as relationships with local architects to create a home that is truly custom.

Q: How long will it take to build my Timber Frame Home?
A:
The entire construction process can take from 8 to 12 months barring any weather problems than can arise.  We typically like to start your building process by designing your project a few months prior to the desired start date.  This way we can design and revise plans as needed and pull permits and still allow for the best weather to build.
