About the Author : Steven RundquistSteven C. Rundquist – Owner – Brewster Timber Frame Company Brewster Timber Frame Company was founded in 1985 in Brewster, Massachusetts. The heart of the company is myself and a network of skilled craftsmen. I have chosen to keep the company small in order to provide each client the individual, detail oriented service they deserve. I moved to Bellvue Colorado in 1998 and brought with me this unique opportunity for you to build your dreams here in the West. Living in Brewster, on Cape Cod in the heart of New England gave me the opportunity to study and work on several historical timber frame structures including 17th century windmills and several remodels of homes dating as far back as 1680. The saying which goes “They don’t build them like they used to” is true. Today we build them better. The frames are engineered for better long term stability. Design and building code requirements have made them safer, and more user friendly. Modern materials and construction techniques have made them more energy efficient and comfortable.View all posts by Steven Rundquist
