Timberpeg Design is located in Claremont, New Hampshire and is responsible for producing design work for Timberpeg® buildings. Timberpeg Design has a talented staff of designers who often work with a former in-house architect, who is a LEED accredited professional, and a structural engineer. Timberpeg Design works with your Independent Representative or your personal architect to develop a floor plan and a timber frame design plan that will meet your wants and needs.
Having produced thousands of timber frame buildings since 1974, Timberpeg Design has many existing plans and timber frame design plans.
However, most of our designs today are entirely custom or will have begun with a standard plan in mind but are then customized as most of our customers have varying wants and needs for their timber frame home.
In these cases the design phase begins with the initial sketches worked out by either you and your Timberpeg® Independent Representative, your architect, or one of our in-house designers.
The Design group, using AutoCAD® software, begins by converting these sketches into 1/4" scale computer generated drawings of your floor plans and elevations, creating the preliminary set of drawings.
The preliminary drawings are sent to you along with an isometric drawing of your timber frame for approval. If changes are needed they are red-lined and re-submitted to the Design group for revisions. The revisions are made and once again the drawings will be sent to you for approval.
Upon approval of the final floor plan design and timber frame, more drawings, showing the foundation plan, and details are created. The Design group, using Cadwork® software, also creates a computer generated 3-D model of the timber frame design. From this 3-D timber frame model the software then enables us to extract a 2-D timber frame drawing and the code that can be fed into our two Hundegger® automated joinery machines.
This information is used by Timberpeg Manufacturing to fabricate the frame for your timber frame home. The end result is an accurately cut timberframe and a comprehensive set of final drawings which are used by Timberpeg® to fabricate your timber frame and your contractor to build your new timber frame home.
In jurisdictions where stamped plans are required, a local consulting engineer should be hired to work with our design group to provide the needed timber frame structural services.
This is because they are licensed in the state involved, and are able to verify specific local requirements such as soil conditions. Typically the timber frame consulting engineer is hired directly by the customer.
