At the pinnacle of PFB’s vertically-integrated marketing and manufacturing model is one of North America’s leading
brands in the timber framing industry – Riverbend Timber Framing.
There is something warm and welcoming about a Riverbend timber frame home. Homeowners and guests marvel at the
elegance and strength of the beautifully-crafted solid wood posts and beams that make up the “bones” of the home.
The timbers are custom-crafted to exacting standards and connected by the kind of pegged mortise and tenon joinery
that has been used for centuries. The precision craftsmanship ensures fast, trouble-free assembly.
In addition to the beauty of the timber-framed interiors, owners of Riverbend homes enjoy the benefits of PFB’s
state-of-the-art, energy-efficient enclosure systems. Riverbend’s traditional timber frame structures are
integrated with Insulspan® SIPS and the PFB Advantage ICF System®.
Timber framing can be incorporated into virtually any size or shape of home. Customers can select a plan from
Riverbend’s extensive design library, or work with Riverbend’s award-winning designers to turn initial concepts
into magnificent designs that incorporate the customer’s taste, lifestyle and budget.
Riverbend also produces timber frame structures for public and commercial projects such as pavilions, churches,
lodges and restaurants.
Riverbend projects have received numerous awards in recognition of their unique design and outstanding energy
efficiency. Among the most recent are the 2005 Energy Star Grant by the State of Michigan, the NAHB Building
Systems Council Award for Excellence in Home Design and the Traverse City HBA Parade of Homes People’s Choice
Award. A Riverbend home also won the NAHB Energy Value Housing Award (EVHA), which was presented at the 2006 NAHB
IBS Show in Orlando, Florida.
Riverbend is the first timber frame company in North America to be certified under the ISO 9000 quality management
