Elevated: Barn Raising in the 21st Century

When driving across America, it's hard to go anywhere without seeing a majestic barn gracing the landscape. With its presence. Historically, barns were necessary to house important livestock, grains, tools, and other resources to provide for the families who erected them.

Today, barns have taken on a whole new meaning, but what remains the same is their show stop­ping presence making a statement wherever they stand.

Modern usage, creative designs

Long gone are the days when barns were constructed by neighbors gathering to help each other develop a necessary building for their land. The modern barn isn't necessarily home to horses, cattle, sheep, or other farm animals.

Barns of the 21st centuty have tak­en on a new look. Some are still used for four-legged friends, but many are developed solely to host gatherings, become home to a brand-new busi­ness, create space to store or work on hobbies, and even to be made into a warm and welcoming home.

Meet Timberlyne

That's where Timberlyne comes in, taking the original concept of wood barns and turning it into something that fits the dreams of today's world. What was once one family's dream to share their rural heritage and love for big timbers has evolved into a flourishing company-and one that is committed to building on that passion by using modern technology that complements and enhances the wisdom of our forefathers.

The historically inspired mindset gives each constructed project a modern twist on a classic icon.

Not only are the historic features and aesthetics of a Timberlyne struc­ture pleasing to the eye, but wood is naturally healthy and energy efficient. It has both insulating and sound absorption properties that make it a superior building material. Wood also has a higher energy efficiency rating than steel or concrete.

Timberlyne's homes and buildings require less energy to maintain heat­ing and cooling, and provide a calm, peaceful, healthy environment that harmonizes with the outdoors.

Timberlyne is headquartered in Wayne, Nebraska, with an addi­tional office and production facility in Boerne, Texas. Timberlyne recently acquired timber mills in Minnesota to help provide a steady source of resources. Through these strategic moves, Timberlyne has grown to represent a full array of products and services that timber can provide. What began as a dream in a Nebraska driveway has grown into thousands of barns, homes, and commercial structures in over 49 states, with no two exactly the same.

Whether you dream of a rustic post and beam barn for your horse,
a majestic timber frame home, or an animal-friendly, biophilic commercial project for your client, Timberlyne can design and bring your idea to reality.

We are an award-winning com­pany that creates timeless dreams across the United States. Together, we will unlock your vision and create a structure enriched by the beauty, sustainability, and strength of wood.
