About Us

There is something special, almost magical, about old buildings. Have you ever walked into an ancient, tumbledown barn and been held speechless, in awe? We have. Are you often curious about the history of an old place, who built it, who lived there? We are.

Chatham Housewrights grew out of our passion for those early timber frame barns, homes, and other structures. What started as an exploration of alternative building techniques became a desire to learn. That interest set us on the path and developed into a desire to produce buildings of substance that capture the spirit of those old barns and grand homes that make us slow down, take a good look and pay attention to what is so special about them. We truly love what we do and it shows in our work.

Timber Frame Designers - About Us

As timber frame designers, we practice the art of 19th century square rule timber framing − cutting and fitting the pegged mortise and tenon joinery by hand the way it has been done for generations. By putting our hearts and minds into every aspect of the work − keeping a keen edge on a favorite chisel, triple checking layouts and measurements, working cleanly and safely − we provide our clients the best product possible. With over 20 years of experience in residential design and construction and a combined 15 years of timber construction experience, our crew can carry a project from concept through completion. Pricing varies relative to project size and complexity; we offer quality services and an affordable alternative to others in our field. Bring us your ideas and we will work with you to realize your vision and help you create a place that is truly yours. If you want a home that is beautiful, strong, comfortable and enduring, we can help.
