About North Ridge Timber Frames Inc.
North Ridge Timber Frames Inc. is owned and operated by Bill Spangler. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have been involved in building and finish carpentry for 25 years. My office and business is located in our show home in south central Wisconsin on Lake Redstone in LaValle, Wisconsin, approximately 18 miles from the Wisconsin Dells. In talking with people and in building timber frame homes, it became obvious that many people in the Midwest were not that familiar with this age old form of construction. Our show home provides prospective clients the opportunity to view first hand the beauty and dramatic impression that a modern day timber frame home or addition can provide. Therefore, I hope you take the time to tour this timber frame, we are confident that you will not regret this experience!
North Ridge Timber Frames has built a number of timber frame homes in the Wisconsin area that are available for viewing. Some are highlighted in the photo gallery and some are currently under construction. We are able to offer complete design build homes in three different options; Post and beam packages, complete with structural insulated panels( SIP’s); Handcrafted mortise and tenon timber frames with the ultimate in energy efficiency using blown in closed cell urethane foam; Kiln dried Douglas Fir in five log styles. Timbers in our frames and log homes are kiln dried Douglas fir from Canada or locally grown air dried White Pine timbers from Wisconsin. Other wood species along with reclaimed timbers are also available. We have direct saw mill and state of the art kiln drying capability which provides us the ability to offer dried timbers which significantly reduces shrinkage, simplifying the building process and greatly enhancing the beauty of the finished home. Our Douglas Fir timbers are stamped to meet national codes.
North Ridge Timber Frames has erection crews that cover the Midwest with a focus in the Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois areas. We can offer complete turn key building options or work with our customers to select a contractor of their choice. If the customer has the time and ability to complete the home after the frame is erected we will work with them through this process. We take pride in our commitment to insure the building experience of our customers is a memorable one and their timber frame home that we collectively build will offer inspiration and beauty now and for generations to come.
Our direction is driven by you the customer. We are a small business with hands on involvement and focus on quality and customer satisfaction. For most of our customers the design and creation of a dream home or addition is a once in a lifetime endeavor, and we would like to play a role in making that dream come true. Our show home is available for viewing by appointment.
