Our Processes

Riverbend offers three paths for achieving your ideal timber home. Select from one of our PerfectFit™ designs, use our floor plans and photos as inspiration for a Custom Design or bring us Your Own Plans. No matter which path you choose, Riverbend will bring your vision to life.


PerfectFit™ Ready-to-Build Designs

Floor Plans:

  • Select one of our new ready-to-build plans – marked as PerfectFit™. These plans were designed for their livability within smaller spaces, and for their speed of construction.


  • PerfectFit™ plans are pre-designed yet incorporate the flexibility to modify elements of the layout that do not affect the existing footprint.


  • Get the best price for your timber home by choosing a PerfectFit™ Ready-to-Build design and make minimal changes.
  • Skip the conceptual design phase and move directly into preconstruction, saving weeks on your overall timeline.
  • Start your home’s construction more quickly.

Custom Design

Floor Plans:

  • Start from scratch based on photos and multiple floor plan ideas.
  • Select one or more of any of our floor plans as the starting point for your custom design.

Custom Design Process:

  • Work one-on-one with your Riverbend designer to create a one-of-a-kind home that meets your exact specifications and fits within your designated budget.


  • Complete architectural design of your custom home is an amazing value.
  • Custom designed to meet your exact needs and architectural preferences while creating a unique, one-of-a-kind home.
  • Designed from day one to match your total building budget.

Bring Us Your Plans

Floor Plans:

  • Provide us with your existing plans.  Your plans may have timber frame specified or none at all.

Design Process:

  • If your plan does not have timbers yet, we will use the overall architectural style of your plan and your preferences to design a timber frame structure to match your original floor plan.


  • Get our expertise to design the ideal timber frame structure for your chosen floor plan.
  • Value-Add Structural Engineering.

A Team Approach

Your Client Representative

The in-house client representative is your first point of contact and advocate through the entire process.

Your Architectural Designer

The designer is responsible for the creation of your conceptual plan and construction drawings.

Your Project Manager

The project manager manages your timeline, coordinates with you and your builder during construction, and helps you select windows, doors, and other materials at Riverbend’s preferred pricing.
