I can't tell you how wonderful it was working with Purcell. I have built many houses and I wanted this last house to be a perfect experience. We had a very developed idea of what we wanted and the team at Purcell listened and worked with us to get exactly what we wanted. When it came to cost, they were full of great ideas and helped us explore the options that they had to access materials and save money. There were no hidden costs or add-ons and everything was clear and very pleasant.They delivered a TOP QUALITY design, worked with my carpenters, roofers, window and door designer and builder for all the pre-installation work and preparation. They made the whole thing really fun.

"As an engineer I was impressed with Purcell's ability to communicate during design and their ability to facilitate non-conventional ideas. I like to focus on the details that you don't see, and after two years I'm still impressed with their roofing structure, ceiling finish and the overall envelope design. Thanks to Purcell I was able to finish the house into one of the most cost-effective, energy-efficient houses in the area."

To Anyone building a timber frame:
We love our house. It's been a year now and we find ourselves still looking up at the timbers with excitement and joy. Really love it. From the onset we worked with Hart to find a design that fit the lot it was being built on and also our families needs. We could relay our thoughts one day and have a complete set of drawings the next. The actual design process was actually a lot of fun. As well, Hart has such a strong base to draw from, we felt like a lot of the smaller details that we might have missed were covered by his experience and knowledge.
As for the actual building, that was great too. Everyone on the job site was super excited to be building the homes they build, and it was nice to follow their work and see the progress. In terms of both price and timeline, they did all that was promised. We would be glad to share our experiences with anyone and would fully recommend Purcell as your next timber builder. We love our house.

We are indeed loving our new home. You and your design and construction team were great to work with from the start. The design is unique and the layout really works for us. The open plan has proven to be quite efficient to operate through all seasons. We would definitely work with you folks again. Thanks to all of you for making it happen for us.

We were impressed by how quickly and creatively the folks at Purcell Timberframes were able to put our design ideas into a plan that worked so well with the location. The quality of materials and craftsmanship of the timberframe is evident throughout. Purcell has definitely met all our expectations. The product speaks for itself, beautiful.

We came to Purcell with our vision and feel for a mountain dream home. Purcell transformed that into reality. As it is the essence of our home, we set the highest expectations for quality craftsmanship in the timber frame. Purcell's dedicated team achieved.

Right from the gorgeous drawings and seeing the wood and timbers that
were going to be used for our house, we were very impressed with
Purcell. The budget you proposed was very aggressive and you did such
an amazing job sticking to it as well as our very tight timeline of
just 8 months. Our window package is gorgeous and we love our
stairs... I have never seen anything like them. The additional help
offered with the hardwood floors and windows worked out amazing! When
our friends and family visit, they are always amazed at our beautiful
We love our home!

I started with a design engagement with Purcell, I knew the general style I wanted was to be fairly traditional in nature. I also new I had a budget to stay within Purcell worked through this with me systematically drawing floor plans and 3d renderings of the outside of my home for easy visualization. They stayed true to there final pricing quote and did not increase it at all along the way. No surprises. The finished result is now a very beautiful house package. I am very happy with Purcell's final product and would definitely build with them again should the opportunity arise. I am very happy and highly recommend you to all who are considering building.

When my wife and I decided to build a lake front home, we met with several timber frame builders to find the right one. Our building site presented unique challenges and not all of the builders we met with were up to the task. From the beginning, Purcell was the right choice for us and did not shy away from the challenge. During the design phase a blank slate approach was used to ensure our vision was achieved. During construction, Purcell continued to be amendable to change and delivered exceptionally high quality on both the timberframe and the envelope. My family now has a home that exudes warmth in the rich quality of the wood and exceptional craftsmanship of the joinery. Without question, Purcell is the only name in home building.
