The cost of a finished custom frame erected on your foundation will range from $19 to $24+ per square foot, without insulating sheathing. Actual costs will depend on a wide range of variables, including your choice of timber, number and sizing of timbers, complexity of the frame, floor plan, custom frame finish details such as curved braces, custom carving, and any additional transportation and raising costs.
These prices include all joinery, straight braces, timbers planed smooth on all exposed surfaces with chamfered edges and one coat of tung oil. Shipping, unloading, crane and raising crew are all additional costs.
Structural insulated panels (SIP) installed on the timber frame will cost about $8-$10 per square foot of panel. The actual cost will depend on the type of panel, R-value of the panel, window and door openings, and whether the panels are pre-cut or site-cut.
