Design Philosophy

Ridgetop Design allows each client to have complete control of their project. This is achieved through visual, written and spoken communication from the beginning to the completion of each frame.

Ridgetop utilizes specialized Cadwork (CAD) timber frame software to design each frame and related components. The software uses a three dimensional image which provides in addition to 3D images, 2D plans and elevations, perspective and dynamic walk through images. These images allow progress to be shown of each aspect of the design as it progresses or individual detail can be extracted and emailed to the client within minutes of a request. Sample images are listed below:

All drawing formats are Microsoft compatible including MS Word, Jpg, Iges, Dxf, Dwg, Tif, and Acis. This allows full visibility of the project with almost all computers.
