ShadeScape™ 10,000 Series Timber Frame DIY Pavilion Kit for Mountaintop Home

Evening sun caresses the soft white furniture beneath the timber installed pavilion kit.

On the Salt Lake Valley side of the mountain the joyride up the steep and winding roads to this mountaintop home was amazing. Driving up the eyes want to drink in the view instead of the road ahead. Surprisingly, and to my delight, this beautiful backyard oasis overlooks the spectacular Utah Valley. It feels as though the home connects these two giant landscaped bowls, cradled in the Rocky Mountains. I believe the sun shines brighter up here.

In regions where there is a continual and natural storm occurrences with strong winds, heavy snows and seismic shifting it is especially essential to have a thorough understanding of load paths and design properties. Utah is known for heavy mountainous snows and the Point of the Mountain for its strong winds. These Western Timber Frame™ ShadeScape™ timber frame kits are engineered for increased load paths, heavy mountainous snows and strong winds. With a thorough understanding of load paths and design properties, well-seasoned timbers with the mortise and tenon joint systems have allowed for wipe open spaces, cathedral ceilings, great rooms in castles, commercial constructions, expanded bridges and more that have lasted for centuries, sometimes millenniums.

However, with the advantage of cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology combined with the time-proven techniques of ancient timberwright architectural artisans, Hyrum Thompson, an inventive and innovative live-wire, designed and engineered the patent-pending  The Dovetail Difference™ mortise and tenon joint connection system. His vision, as well as all those at Western Timber Frame™ is that they are erecting timber structures that stronger and more durable than timber frame structures of the past that will reach down through the centuries of time as memorials of its beauty and endurance that future generations will enjoy.
