Wood brackets are a great choice for homeowners add a unique touch to their new home's exterior. Timber frame brackets can also be added to your existing home and can change the overall look of your home. The brackets are typically placed under the roof overhangs.

Timber frame pergolas are becoming extremely popular and our sister company Davis Timber Frame can help you create a pergola kit that will turn your backyard into an escape for you and your family.  Pictured to the left is a timber frame pergola we worked on a couple of years ago.
