Unique Capabilities

Hearthstone has unique capabilities that make us abler than anyone in the world to help you design, engineer, craft and install a log or timber structure that will immediately convey to your customers that yours is a business of substance, creativity, ingenuity, and dependability. A Hearthstone commercial building is not only a space of uncommon strength, beauty, and ambiance, but it is also a subtle, timeless marketing force.

How do we promise all this?

  • World class CAD/CAM manufacturing. All of our work is done in highly specialized 3-D true solid modeling software designed in Switzerland specifically for heavy timber CAD/CAM manufacturing. This means that we do the detail work that makes the architectural vision a success. This means that we can make sure the vision will work on the construction site as well as it does in the presentation boardroom. This means that we can solve the most complex of timber joinery issues on the computer, then pass this information directly to the most sophisticated computerized heavy timber joinery cutting machinery in the world.
  • The extremely rare ability to truly dry large timbers in high tech vacuum kilns and radio frequency (microwave) vacuum kilns. Truly drying heavy timbers in the core of the timber — without destroying the timbers — is nearly impossible without vacuum and/or radio frequency kilns. There is no other commercially feasible way to dry timbers to a definable and consistent interior moisture content.
  • World class handcrafting. Sometimes, a design simply requires handcrafting that the computerized machinery won’t do.
  • In-house sourcing, harvesting, and sawing of unique and hard-to-find massive timbers.
  • Structural engineers experienced in commercial heavy timber construction.
  • Worldwide installation services.
  • Experience, track record, and reputation.

You can get bids from many companies. But, very, very few have the proven ability to assure an inspirational structure designed and engineered properly as well as delivered and installed on time, as agreed and specified, and at the right combination of quality and price. Hearthstone does that every day and has done it for decades.
