Transforming a Pool House with Traditional Timber Framing

Handcrafted, hand-raised timber frames connect this Uniontown, Ohio home’s pool, guest house, entryway, and tennis court.

The Paschke Pool House project went through what OakBridge Timber Framing calls the company’s “dream process.” Oakbridge starts with planning and design, then manufacturing, transportation, raising the frame, and the last step, the dream realized, marks the project’s completion.

This pool house was no small project. Johnny Miller, owner of OakBridge, and his team were tasked with creating 1,056 square feet of exterior covered space and 1,296 square feet of interior space. The clients wanted to join their tennis court and pool, along with upgrading the pool house to more of a guest home.

Typically, OakBridge works on creating custom designs for projects, but sometimes clients come to Miller with architectural plans drawn up, which is what happened with the Paschke Pool House. But it’s rare to find a designer who knows timber framing like OakBridge, so pre-drawn plans often need adjustments, Miller says.
