EWH operates as a construction practice. Rapidly changing technology and building science requires a life-long commitment to hands-on skill development and brain-on old-fashioned study habits. Though versed in all areas of construction, EWH's passion is to create enduring and endearing timber frame buildings.
EWH has been designing and building timber frames throughout Oregon and Washington for over 24 years. During that time we've learned many valuable (sometimes painful) lessons about customer needs and opportunities for product improvement. We re-invest that fund of knowledge into every new project we undertake.
We get excited about helping our customers create beautiful buildings. Creative endeavors are rarely easy. But, with a competent guide they are more likely to be successful--and great fun for all members of the project team. We love the challenging process of building cool stuff with big timber and that's why we are enthusiastic about hearing what you want us to build for you.
As ardent believers in "small is beautiful" EWH has a limited capacity to do great work for everyone who walks through the door. Good things take time and timber frames are VERY good things. We have had to turn away several projects because owners did not provide us sufficient lead time and were overly fixated on unrealistic completion dates. It is key that all involved appreciate the value of process--and the productive lasting relationships that develop during that process.
