LEARNING FROM A SCIENCE & CRAFT THAT IS 4,000 YEARS OLD.
Wood is the original renewable resource, and one of the most durable, long lasting building materials known. Structures framed with timber can stand indefinitely with relatively minimal input. They are more fire, earthquake and wind proof than steel and concrete buildings. Because they can be taken apart, reassembled and reconfigured, heavy timber buildings are flexible and dynamic. In fact, there are thousands of timber framed buildings that are more than a millennium old in active use throughout the world today.
WHO WE ARE
WE CREATED TRILLIUM DELL TO EXPRESS OUR LOVE & RESPECT FOR WOOD.
Preserving and restoring old frames and building new ones is more than a job to us, it’s our life’s calling. Through our timber craft we express our reverence for community and place, the mastery of craft, and of innovation and discovery.
WHO WE WORK WITH
WE HELP PEOPLE WHO CARE FOR THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT.
While Trillium Dell clients are all unique individuals, they share at least two things in common: they care deeply about the world that we are preserving and building, and they love the aesthetic and beauty of wood. Some of the people we help are:
Preservationists, stewards of precious buildings,
Architects who care about both true sustainability and the experience of environmental art,
Homeowners who care about place, natural beauty, design and carbon footprint,
Owners of existing timber or glulam frames that need repair
Developers who care about longevity and appearance, and
Contractors who serve any of these people.
YOUR PARTNER IN HEAVY TIMBER.
The most enduring timber frames are based on geometry, and the proportions of the natural world. From simple vernacular, to the most magnificent cathedrals in Europe, geometric principles have driven design and engineering for millennia. These math rules, complimented by modern tools and techniques, provide an incredibly flexible set of building blocks to work with. We help you understand how to use them effectively.

WE START WITH YOUR GOALS. WE END WITH THE BUILDING THAT FITS JUST RIGHT.
