Our Maine Timber Frame Company

Sweet Timber Frames builds custom timber frame homes, barns, and other timber frame construction from our workshop on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Our homes are beautiful, environmentally friendly, and built to last using traditional timber frame values.


Founded in 1981 by John Sweet, we specialize in well-appointed "foundation-to-finish" houses we design and build for clients in Maine. Whether you are looking for a small, private retreat in the woods, or a large timber frame home as beautiful as the waterfront views your property offers, we will craft a timber frame to your specifications and with exceptional attention to detail.
