Cedar Home Building Systems
Cedar Home Building Systems
We custom design and manufacture four different Home Building Packages, three of which feature Western Red Cedar, full cathedral ceilings, exposed laminated beams and walls of glass.
Post and Beam System - The Post & Beam Building System
A rich combination of Western Red Cedar siding and trim with full cathedral ceilings and contemporary walls of glass that bring the outside in and creates an impressive open design.
Post & Beam homes are designed with flexibility in mind. The structural strength of your home comes from sturdy posts positioned around the exterior shell and glue-lam roof beams spanning the structure.
The posts and beams are spaced 6' apart which maximizes the ratio of space to cost and provides optimum design spaces for rooms such as bathrooms and bedrooms as well as spaces for larger doors and windows. This system allows for expansive living spaces and high ceilings not restricted by traditional framing and load bearing walls.
Exterior siding is 1x6 Western Red Cedar. Interior walls are finished with optional drywall, cedar, or any custom material you select. The open beam ceilings can be of2x6 decking, 1x6 paneling, or drywall.
A combination of materials and spaces with unlimited possibilities.
The Phoenix System is an exceptionally strong, easy to assemble building system using kiln-dried laminated timbers. The result is a 5x8(5-Lam) Timber engineered to create a solid timber wall able to withstand earthquakes and hurricane-strength winds. 3x8 (3-lam) Timber is available for tropical climates, and are also implemented in our "Energy-Wall" options. Our newest profile to be added is the Phoenix System "D-Log" Timber for those who desire a refined Log appearance. The Phoenix System is the perfect blend of the old and the new. With a mix of cedar-laminated exterior timber walls and conventionally framed interior walls, you get the charm of a timber home with modern construction techniques.
The incomparably inviting smell of Western Red Cedar wall timbers, coupled with it's ageless beauty, remarkable insulating qualities, natural resistance to decay and exceptional durability create a Cedar Home that is truly delightful.
Developed by a Danish cabinet-maker over 50 years ago, our Classic Timber Building System uses solid sawn Western Red Cedar Timbers joined in an interlocking fashion referred to as the "Classic Notch", to join the timbers into a solid wall system.
The exterior and load-bearing walls are solid, air-dried timbers in either 4x6 size for single-wall applications, or 3x6 for Energy Wall and tropic applications. Interior non load bearing walls are conventionally framed.
