Our Company

TRC Timberworks was founded by Tim Reilly because of his passion for timber framing and natural building techniques. Tim started woodworking as a youth, helping his father install custom cabinetry and renovate houses. After a 10 year career working in carpentry, construction, and saw milling, Tim achieved a lifetime dream and began building his own home in 2006.

Through the process of building his timber frame straw bale home, Tim’s love of working with natural materials led him to found TRC Timberworks to combine his woodworking craftsmanship with other natural building methods and offer these skills to his clients. He is a Licensed Residential Builder and General Contractor, as well as being a certified Journeyman Carpenter.

Tim operates TRC Timberworks with his wife, Raina Gardner, who is also an independent educator and doula. They are continually learning new methods of natural building and incorporating ecological practices and energy systems into their business and their own home.
