What We Do
Equinox Woodworks provides insured and licensed contractor services for residential construction. We are a team of conscientious craftsmen who work hard to make your building dreams a reality. We combine our energies and talents to ensure that the building process flows efficiently and safely and that our projects adhere to a high standard of quality. Our respect for the environment has us constantly trying new green building techniques and products with the goal of making our houses both energy efficient and a healthy place to live. We like to build homes in our local community near Burnsville in Yancey County, North Carolina.
We enjoy working with big timbers. We think that a full timber frame is a beautiful expression of our craftsmanship, durable enough to last for centuries, and one of the most energy efficient ways to build when combined with structural insulated panels for walls and roof. Since a full timber frame is not in everyone’s budget, we have developed several hybrid combinations of timber framing and standard construction, which allow us to take advantage of the strength of large timbers to create large open floor plans and keep costs low. We usually find creative ways to incorporate timbers into the homes we build, even if it’s just a single beautiful post or beam.
Equinox Woodworks offers limited design services, primarily for projects that we also build. Most of our projects are modest, simple houses which require basic design expertise. For more complex projects, we have several architects and designers that we recommend.
