best of state

Everyone has their ‘sweet spot’, the things that they are good at that distinguishes them from the crowd. For Western Timber Frame™ 2019 marks the fifth consecutive year to be honored with Best of State at the annual Utah Best of State Awards.

As ladies and timber-wrights who see a daily dose of sawdust, the formalities, positive attention, and recognition was an all enjoyable change but the time spent together to relax outside daily work schedules was the best.

One of our architects was pleased that Miss Utah and an attendant indulged him with a selfie. He thought that was way cool. Later, as to be expected, his fellow workers brought him down out of the clouds by scribbling beards on their faces.


On surface-level, Western Timber Frame™ specializes in the designing, manufacturing, and installing of solid timber pavilions, pergolas, gazebos, and other shade and outdoor living structures; as well as post and beam – trusses and more.

Western Timber Frame™ is the leader in award-winning designs, trade dresses and numerous patented and patent-pending manufacturing methods. Simply put, we build a fantastic product, and as our customers attest to, nothing else out there even comes close.

As awesome as this all is, what sets Western apart is NOT just by what we do, but WHY WE DO IT.

16th borthday celebration


Ten years ago, from our established beginnings, as soon we delivered our first ShadeScape® kits people began reaching back to us through e-mails, phone calls, letters, and at Home Shows. We recognized we were building more than a superior product; it was changing lives.


People were telling us they were getting more time in the sun; children spent more time with their parents, relationships were healed, neighbors and communities came together. Some even happily reported they or their spouse had lost weight, all because they had an energizing, happy, healthier and convenient space they could go to any and every day. They were disconnecting from technology and reconnecting with each other.
