The 5 Steps to Building a Timber Frame with Gibson Timber Frames

1) Quote

• Customer brings drawings, sketches, photos , location, wood species.
• Gibson Timber Frames will prepare a sketch and a price using this information - see recent estimates.
• Customer will make revisions and Gibson will re-quote to get budget and design to come together.

2) Contract

Gibson Timber Frames will send a draft contract for the customer's review.
This will include:
• A description of the scope of work covered by Gibson Timber Frames.
• A description of the timber frame drawing approval process.
• Payment Plan.
• Shop Completion date.
Contract is signed and a deposit is made.

3) Timber Frame Drawings

• Gibson Timber Frames supplies the timber frame drawings for approval to the customer or general contractor.
• The customer or general contractor approves the drawings as ready to build.
• Gibson Timber Frames will submit the drawings to an engineer for approval.
• Gibson Timber Frames will complete the shop drawings after receiving the ready to build and stamped engineered drawings.
• The wood is ordered.
• Any changes to the drawings made by the customer or general contractor after the ready to build approval will be invoice hourly at $50/hr.

4) Shop Work

• Once the timbers arrive the carpenters cut the joinery using the shop drawings.
• The timbers are cut and sanded.
• A clear coat is installed at the shop.
• If there is a stain coat - this is applied to the timbers at the site.

5) Installation

• Site is prepared to receive the timber - access for the trucks and crane is required.
• Either the general contractor, one staff from Gibson Timber frames with the general contractor, or a 100% GTF crew installs the timber work.
• The crane is hired and the timber frame is raised.
