We appreciate how difficult it can be to fully understand the estimated overall construction costs of a home. 

So, what is the cost per square foot to build a timber frame home anyway?

The cost per square foot to build a timber frame house can be worked out in the table below. The estimated costs below are based on actual designs shown in our portfolio section and are presented to help you gain a better understanding of the range pricing we have seen over many years of gathering historical pricing.

There are numerous factors that contribute to the range of prices you will find and some are listed below.

The designs are clickable & will take you to the design, floor plan & elevation drawings for each.

We encourage you to contact a Canadian Timberframes sales representative to discuss your project in more detail. Every project is unique and we would be happy to assist you.

things to note & What impacts the price

Home location: Labour rates and access to labour, difficulty of site conditions, shipping costs, permitting and servicing fees are all factors.

Site Constraints: Is your land on a slope?

Engineering Requirements : Snow, wind and seismic.

Size of home: Economies of scale are a factor where a larger home can contribute to a lower cost per square foot based on some fixed costs that are now distributed over a larger footprint.

Complexity of design: Implementing construction detailing that is less understood and cost effective on complex homes will often add cost. Roof lines, angles of roof and the number of Square corners on your floor plan will also impact cost.
Fit and Finish: The interior choices of finishing and detailing has a huge impact on overall construction costs, from floor coverings, light fixtures, cabinets, kitchen and bathroom fixtures and can dramatically affect price.

Square Footage: Based on livable heated spaces and excludes screened porches, porches and decks.
