Client Testimonials

See how others describe their relationship with Dreaming Creek in their own words.

“For my reconstruction business, I believe a finished product can only be as good as the raw materials from which it is made. I have worked with suppliers of White Oak from all around the country, and I’ve stopped working with all of them since I met Dreaming Creek Timber Frame Homes.

“For the particular type of reconstruction I do, the quality of white oak needs to be the best available because it is used to make working machinery for use in wind & water powered mills. Especially important is the use of properly selected, harvested, milled and weathered wood products. Dreaming Creek has delivered consistently, White Oak of the highest quality and also practices ecologically sound harvesting of these materials. I highly recommend Dreaming Creek for their trustworthy & reliable services.”

“New Life for Home, Home on the Ranch” – A poem by owner, Steve Lewis

Steve Lewis, Owner
Timber Frame Residence – Jeromy Ranch, Utah

“The frame is incredible! Many have come by who have, or have seen, other types of frames & leave knowing that this is the finest they’ve seen… design, the size of the timbers, and the quality of the joinery are unequaled.”

Mac Lankford, Owner
Timber Frame Residence – Urbana, Maryland

“It was a very smooth raising and the best cutting that I have ever seen on a Hundegger.  I am not sure what you guys are doing different than the competition, but it is unbelievably better than anyone I have ever seen.  I have personally run a Hundegger for 6 months, in the past, so I believe I know what I am saying when I say “WOW”.

Chris Miller, Carolina Timberworks, LLC
