At Thistlewood Timber Frame Homes, we believe that recycling beautiful vintage structures and building materials not only makes sound economical sense - it makes beautiful sense as well.  Older structures such as log homes and barns can be beautifully and creatively adapted for residential or commercial purposes either as a stand alone building or a creative addition to your existing home or business. These buildings are steeped in history and character and are worth considering if you are looking for a unique living or business environment.


At present we have a number of structures in stock which have been restored and readied for construction.  Please contact us for details on how these structures might integrate with your future building plans.

Milton, Ontario (Esquesing Township). 

This is a very unique barn frame indeed! 
The barn has many architectural details that 
are sure to interest any barn enthusiast

c. 1850 Timber Frame Threshing Barn


This inspiring timber frame threshing barn 

measuring 35' x 55' was originally built c.1850

near Toronto, Ontario and was constructed

entirely from old growth White pine timbers.

All large timbers are "hand-hewn" and exhibit

a beautiful aged patina.

A large graceful "swing beam" spans the width

of the structure and is a truly unique feature of

this early barn. The top plates supporting the

foot of the rafters are single timbers incredibly

stretching the entire 55' length of the building.
