Davis Peak Timber Frame Design

Location: Cle Elum, WA. Suncadia resort Size: 2,775 sq.ft.
Scope of Work: This project is an exemplary example of our value engineering capabilities. This production home was originally designed and engineered by others and the developer came to us to re-design and value engineer this production model.


  • Over budget by $325,000 per unit
  • Sale price of 1.2 million
  • Behind schedule by 3 months per unit
  • Poor structural design
  • Limited ‘free standing’ timberframe
  • Many aesthetic timber members
  • Poor material and finish specifications
  • Poor finish quality due to budget overuns
  • Lack of planning
  • Fully masonry F.P. with full rock (unnecessary expense)

After completion of our value engineering/re-design:

  • Framed F.P. with split face stone (same look, but with drastic cost savings)
  • Reduction in construction costs by $275,000
  • Each unit finished ahead of schedule
  • Improved and simplified structural design
  • Complete ‘free standing’ timber frame
  • Improved finish quality, including higher material grade.
  • Increased sales value of $75,000 due to complete timber frame and improved quality. Sale price of 1.275 million
  • Improved layout
  • Increased number of windows for day lighting
