Don’t take our word for it. Here is what our clients are saying about their experience with Cougar Creek Timber Frame. We look forward to working with you and adding you to our list of satisfied clients.
“We made an inquiry after visiting the website and after a phone call we were invited to attend the Spring Seattle Home show so we could make a decision. We learned so much by meeting with Don and Cristy and after a visit to our lot, we gave them a design deposit. We are very pleased with the design of our home as they made our ideas along with our photos of what we like become a reality. Our contractor was very pleased to work with them as they were they to help and answer his questions. We were given an estimate on the cost in the beginning and with a few changes, the real cost was very close. They come highly recommended.”

“We had a great experience working long distance as we purchased land in Oregon and chose Cristy to design our timber frame home. I had to stay on the East Coast until my house sold. We were able to communicate long distance to build our dream home. They were there on site as the timber frame arrived and were on the property until the frame was up. We love our SIP’s as it is so quiet and a small utility bill. I would use them again.”

“We purchased acreage and built our barn with a carved out place to park our RV until we planned our next move. We were thinking we wanted a log home and attended a Log and timber frame show in San Francisco where we learned about another type of a wood house. We learned so much from Don and Cristy that we invited them to view our property. After a property visit, we decided to work with them to design a timber frame home. We were able to communicate our ideas and answered their questionnaire. Over the following five months we were able to develop a floor plan. We waited two years to break ground with our hybrid timber frame home. Our home reflects who we are as we are almost retired and love to entertain. Looking back, we are glad we had a lot of lead time to design our floor plan to fit our needs and to take advantage of our view of the mountains. It took a lot of patience to stay with us during our difficult time and then be there for us when we were ready to build. What great people to work with and highly recommend no matter what the distance.”

We had a dream to build a second home for a retreat from the busy city life with our three boys thinking it would be in the Winthrop area. Meeting Don and Cristy and sharing our plans to build in the Winthrop area, they put us in touch with a local real estate agent that helped us find some land. The building site needed much work to create the building site and they brought a ladder to the site so the exact valley view could be confirmed from the finished floor level. We had a budget and shared how we wanted our floor space to capture the 360 view. A design was created to utilize a lower level with interior stairs to the main living area. It was great but changed our minds to another style. A seconded design was created to capture the exact look we were looking for and 3-D interior modeling was the key where we could view the rooms seeing the placement and size of braces, beams and trusses. So bottom line, we got the look we wanted by listening to other options making our ideas shine. It is now 2015 and we live here full time and could not be happier with a very low utility bill, enjoying the beauty of the timbers showcasing our mountains, thrilled with multi-use areas and the flow of the floor plan. So thankful that we met them at a Home Show in 2006 and returning in 2007 with a design fee to start the planning process. It was wonderful experience of working with Don and Cristy and come highly recommended as a working couple!

This letter is a recommendation for the Cougar Creek Timber Frame Company that we decided to work with after interviewing two other companies. We are located on an Island and wanted a building site visit first before we started the design process. Don and Cristy were there for us and a joy to work with as they listen to our list of wants and gave us a ballpark estimate. Our home is more than we thought possible and especially love the indoor/outdoor living areas. We met our goals in our timeframe.

I have been asked to write a letter of recommendation and gladly accepted as companies with honest and integrity is a wonderful find and this is one company that has both. You can trust Don with doing what he says he will do. I came to the company with a set of plans and knew I wanted a timber frame entry and timbers in the great room/kitchen/dining area plus our master bedroom. Also, wanted some nice exterior looks and front entry. My plans had provisions for timber frame but not detailed. Don took my plans and made a 3-D model showing some nice curved trusses. I wanted something different than the common truss look. After seeing this model, I wanted some more exterior timbers. He also worked well with my architect giving him shop drawings. The cost was reasonable for all his services and well-coordinated with my contractor with delivery.

We attended the Seattle Home Show in the fall where we interview all the timber frame companies and after two days, my wife and I decided to work with Cougar Creek Timber Frame as they communicated and taught us so much. We wanted our home to accommodate small children where they could be warm with room to play during the dark months of the year having enough space but having no idea how to make a floor plan. They flew up and spent two days laying out the square footage giving us a schematic so we could give the go-a-head.
All materials had to be put on a barge and have to say the whole experience of start to finish was a joy for our 4,000 sf home with a two car garage. The company was there for a week to train our crew to erect the timber frame and most of the walls were up when they left. It was a great experience and would use their company again.
