Dreaming Creek Timber Frame Homes, Inc. was founded by president and owner, Bob Shortridge in 1991. The company was named for a tiny creek that winds through the property headquartered in Powhatan County, near Richmond Virginia.
From its inception, Dreaming Creek embodied a holistic viewpoint of “green living,” and fosters a lifestyle of sustainability to this day. From a technology standpoint, we’ve continually honed our edge since our founder’s early exploration with mortise and tenon woodworking during the timber frame renaissance of the early 80s.
