Wouldn’t it be great if you had a home-building coach to help you make your dream of a new timber frame home come true? A guide who knows the local craftsmen and reliable contractors?
These timber frame maestros exist in many markets across the United States. You can find them under Where We Build. Woodhouse timber frame builder dealers help couples realize their own dream homes.
For some, it’s a part-time endeavor. For others, it’s a full-time job. Timber frame builder dealers can present their businesses under a variety of labels, such as home builders, general contractors, or as independent builder dealers. Many offer “turnkey services,” which means once the project earns its certificate of occupancy, they hand over the keys and the garage door openers.
In addition to construction services, some timber frame builder dealers can be a one-stop-shop for everything you need to buy and build your dream home. This can include helping you find land to build on, as well as interior design services, including furniture and décor selection.

Homebuyers wanting a timber frame home are drawn to their timeless elegance, state-of-the-art energy efficiencies, and eco-friendly building materials, says Hans Doellgast, owner of the award-winning Jade Mountain Builders in Asheville, North Carolina.
Doellgast, who has built three timber-framed homes with Woodhouse and has several more in design, says he’s consistently impressed with the company’s design talent and how it’s included as part of Woodhouse’s home package.
“By including the design of a home as part of the Woodhouse package, this saves clients thousands of dollars that would otherwise go to an architectural firm,” he says. He also gives kudos to Woodhouse’s design team in producing three-dimensional design drawings that help homebuyers visualize how the home will live on their land. Finally, their excellent turn-around times on design customizations, and on-time deliveries of the building materials, helps guarantee customer satisfaction for timber frame builder dealers.

Woodhouse’s state-of-the-art building system goes to the heart of his company’s emphasis to build sustainably, says Doellgast. The resulting high-performance homes are 75% more energy-efficient than stick-built neighbors. Woodhouse homes are healthier as well, thanks to fresh indoor air quality.
“Timber frame homes will last hundreds of years without ever going out of style – through intelligent design, we can prolong how long it will last without having to be remodeled.”
In addition to the high-tech building system, Woodhouse also offers a complete business system to help timber frame builder dealers succeed, says Jack Litzenberger, owner and partner in 2 Pros Construction (Cortland, NY), which is in the midst of completing its fourth Woodhouse timber frame home.
Woodhouse’s project management software automates many of the day-to-day processes and increases communication between the homeowner, design, engineering, scheduling, production, and more.
“Woodhouse provides excellent design services and walks the homebuyer through the design process very effectively,” says Litzenberger. “We then partner to provide our building and site development services after a site visit and to finalize the budget to complete the home on the owner’s property. This unique partnership helps the client realize real costs to construct their home and we provide a turn-key package while providing products that are not in the Woodhouse package. Basically, we pick up where Woodhouse leaves off.
“From that hand off the coordination of their package goes through us to erect and finish their home on site,” he adds. “The Woodhouse team coordinates all deliveries through us and provides all of the package parts agreed to in their contract on behalf of the client. Their process is well orchestrated, and the people who administer the coordination are professionals.”
