What People are Saying...
“In 2012, we were lucky enough to meet the great people at Wooden Shoe Timberframe Company by chance. We had discussed the idea of building a new cottage in 5-10 years, but when we saw the awesome, creative work of Wooden Shoe we could not wait. Les and Eva worked with us to develop a design that fit our landscape and facilitated the project from start to finish. The project was timely and on budget and we were updated with regular meetings. The craftsmen working on the project were very knowledgeable and polite and a pleasure to work with. The pride we feel every time we step into our oasis is all thanks to the amazing team at Wooden Shoe Timberframe Company.”
““I had been contemplating the restoration of my 1880 timber frame barn into a garage for some time. Lester listened to me and understood what I wanted. Lester’s crew are highly skilled tradesmen in timber framing and traditional hand crafted joinery and take great pride in their work. The beauty of the timber frame garage continues to amaze me. Friends and family come by to the garage and just say “Wow!”. Their reaction says it all for me. I was so happy with their work that I invited them back to renovate my main timber framed barn which was built in the early 1800’s. Again, the results were amazing, and I look forward to working with Lester on future projects.””
