OUR ROOTS RUN DEEP

Tracing its origins back to the more rustic brand Vermont Log Buildings (now known as Real Log Homes) and its line of modest post and beam structures called Clustersheds, Timberpeg is one of the oldest timber frame companies in the United States. Follow our timeline below to learn more about us and how we have come to be known as “The Artisans of Post & Beam.”

HARTLAND, VT 1963

REAL LOG HOMES FOUNDED

Founder, Jesse Ware, had a vision to build homes that blended with the countryside. He began fulfilling this vision by handcrafting his own log home out of a stand of white pine trees. This was when our sister company, VT Log Buildings, now known as REAL LOG HOMES, was founded.

Late 1960s

First Plant

The first plant site was bought in Hartland, growing up around an existing sawmill and log yard.

FALL 1972

THE FIRST CLUSTER SHED IS BUILT

The first timber frame project, a unit made up of a series of simple structures, (originally called a Cluster Shed) was constructed. This concept, perhaps one of the earliest modular timber framing systems, featured the traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery that has become the Timberpeg hallmark. Around this time, the first office was built in Hartland.

1974

TIMBERPEG IS ESTABLISHED

Customers loved the style of these structures but began requesting more custom, livable designs and options. As a result of this evolution the TIMBERPEG brand was born.

Late 1970s

Solar Series Created

As Timberpeg began to expand across the country, the Solar Series was introduced. This was in response to solar tax incentives put in place at the time, which made it a popular option.

1984

SunCourt Series Developed

Designed by Jonathan Rose, AIA, the Director of Design at the time, this project was the forerunner of the use of Douglas fir timbers, which we continue to utilize today.

1988

Craftsman for Country Living

Country Living approached Timberpeg about doing the feature house in their 10th Anniversary issue. This Craftsman style home was done in Douglas fir.

Late 1990s

Expansion of Trusses and Joinery

With the implementation of the Hundegger, Timberpeg began to offer more elaborate trusses and joinery. These offerings have now become a part of our everyday production.

PRESENT DAY

EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE

Today, Timberpeg is a international company with close to 8,000 timber frame residential and commercial projects to our credit.
