Team Timber Plans
TEAM TIMBER designs T-REX timber frame plans for professional contractors and DIYers. All plans come with renderings, elevations, construction drawings, timber lists, fastener lists and most importantly single beam drawings making it very easy to cut each member before anything is erected. If you can't find a suitable plan on our PLANS page above, feel free to contact Greg Butkus to discuss your custom design or modifications.
We use GRK's screws exclusively. This rugged structural screw is made of specially hardened steel to provide high tensile, torque and shear strength. GRK RSS™ screws are included with connectors and we have GRK Caliburn™ concrete screws available to purchase when you are attaching to foundations.
