Siding Options


Standard Option

Cedar Board & Batten


Cedar board and batten siding is the standard offering for several of our barn and barn home kits. Made from Western red cedar sourced here in the Pacific Northwest, this beautiful, long-lasting siding choice is designed to give your exterior its authentic rustic appearance. Cedar board and batten siding combines wide cedar boards with narrow wood strips (battens) to create a layered, vertical effect on your exterior. Perfect for residential or commercial use, this standard siding option is a great selection for property owners specifically wanting natural wood siding for their structure.

Available Option

Douglas Fir Tongue & Groove


A standard offering for our Pendleton Horse Barn Kit, and a frequent upgrade for interior wall and ceiling coverings on our barns and homes, we only source the finest select grade 2” x 6” Douglas fir from the Pacific Northwest for our Douglas fir tongue and groove siding. Douglas fir takes a finish well and can be matched with a variety of vibrant stain colors.

Available Option

Cedar Tongue & Groove


Similar to our cedar board and batten siding option, our cedar tongue and groove siding is made with select tight knot Western red cedar sourced from the Pacific Northwest. The key difference between the two siding options lies in their design, as cedar tongue and groove siding features wide cedar boards placed side by side that can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Its natural, rustic appearance makes it ideal for those seeking an authentic heavy timber exterior, and its durable qualities create a long-lasting layer of protection around your structure.

Dormer Options


Standard Option

Gable Dormer


A gable dormer is a roofed structure that sits on a sloped roof and forms a triangular shape at the top. These types of dormers are commonly added to classic barn-style structures to create additional headroom and achieve the look of a traditional barn building.

Standard Option

Shed Dormer


A shed dormer is a roofed structure that protrudes from the roof of a building. Designed with a single slope roof, a shed dormer is an aesthetically appealing and practical addition to any timber frame or post and beam structure.

Standard Option

Nantucket Dormer


Nantucket dormers are created when two gable dormers are joined by a connecting dormer to form a singular structure. Nantucket dormers are used in a variety of architectural styles, from ranch-style to Cape Cod structures, and are great investments for clients seeking a unique and functional visual element for their structure.

Standard Option

Faux Dormer


Our faux dormer option is perfect for clients seeking an attractive solution for their exterior that doesn’t encroach on their space. These dormers are installed on the roof without breaking through the surface so you can achieve your desired home appearance at a lower cost.

DC Structures

Truss Options


Available Option

King Post Truss


A king post timber truss is a straightforward, yet attractive design that consists of a bottom chord, two top chords, a center “king” post, and two webs that support the rafters.

Available Option

Queen Post Timber Truss


A queen post timber truss is a simple truss style that features a bottom chord, two top chords, and two “queen” posts instead of a center “king” post.

Available Option

Hammerbeam Truss


A hammerbeam timber truss is a decorative and ornate truss style reminiscent of English Gothic architecture. This timber truss is characterized by short beams—the hammerbeams—that protrude out of the rafters and are supported by curved braces.

Available Option

Double Ridge Truss


A double ridge timber truss is a complex truss style defined by shorter beams that form an “H” shape in the center, two webs supporting the rafters, and four protruding beams used for decorative and structural effect.

Available Option

Flat Bottom Truss


Made with premium quality lumber, our flat bottom truss option forms a standard triangular shape with a flat bottom chord.

Available Option

Scissor Truss


Although parallel chord trusses fall in the category of scissor trusses, there’s a distinct difference in design between our standard scissor truss option and parallel chord trusses. Our standard scissor truss features sloped bottom chords that form a V shape. This design not only makes them a unique structural element in one’s space, but provides the clearance and support needed for vaulted ceilings.

Available Option

Angle Iron Steel Truss


Our horse arena kits are built with angle-iron steel trusses to create wide-open spaces free of obstructions. Their steel composition provides increased strength for our structures, allowing them to stretch greater distances with fewer supports needed.

Available Option

Vaulted Parallel Chord Truss


Parallel chord trusses are designed with diagonal bracing and a flat top and bottom chord that run parallel to each other. This type of truss is commonly used as floor joists and roof rafters, with our Stillwater Barn Home Kit utilizing parallel chord trusses to create its unique vaulted ceilings.

Deck Options


Available Option

Traditional Cedar Deck


Perfect for clients seeking a simple yet attractive deck for their structure, our standard cedar deck option provides the ideal setting for relaxation and entertainment. This traditional deck option is made with select tight knot Western red cedar decking, handrailing, and trim, as well as select grade Douglas fir columns and pressure-treated joists and beams. Our cedar decks are typically designed for your second story, but we can also create a first-floor deck to perfectly suit your needs.

Available Option

Cantilevered Deck


Similar to our traditional cedar deck option, our cantilevered deck upgrade is made of Western red cedar decking, handrailing, and trim to achieve its beautiful rustic appearance. However, the primary difference between these two options is that cantilevered decks do not require added structural support to uphold the weight of the deck. How this works is that in a traditional deck, the joists (or structural components that create the deck frame) extend out from the structure to a girder (horizontal support beam) that rests on the support posts. With a cantilevered deck, the girder and support posts are replaced by members that extend out from the structure.

Available Option

Heavy Timber Deck


Our heavy timber-framed deck is a step above our regular and cantilevered decks in terms of quality and curb appeal. Framed with FOHC Douglas fir lumber instead of dimensional pressure-treated lumber, our heavy timber deck upgrade is designed to provide unmatched durability and beauty for your outdoor living space. Similar to our traditional and cantilevered deck options, this upgrade is made with select tight knot Western red cedar decking, handrailing, and trim so you can enjoy the look of real cedar decking with the added support of Douglas fir structural components. Keep in mind that your heavy timber deck will need to be properly treated or flashed to protect against possible water damage.

Available Option

Trex Enhance® Naturals Composite Decking


Trex Enhance® Naturals Composite Decking is a high-performance composite decking material that is designed to mimic the appearance of wood without the associated expense of maintaining real wood decking. These eco-friendly, weather-resistant composite boards are engineered to withstand years of sun, sleet, and snow while keeping their color over time. Additionally, their high-performance decking products are backed by a 25-Year Limited Residential Fade & Stain Warranty so you can feel secure in your investment. Clients have the option of upgrading to Trex Select® Decking or Trex Transcend® Decking or instead opting for Trex Enhance® Basics.

Available Option

Waterproof Rooftop Deck


Our waterproof rooftop deck option is our newest deck offering. This option is perfect for clients wanting to maximize property views by adding a rooftop deck to their structure. Something to keep in mind with this deck option is that our offering does not come with a waterproofing coating. We recommend clients go through a professional waterproofing service to ensure the best results for their decking. That said, we provide all the framing materials necessary to create the ideal rooftop deck for your structure that will enhance your outdoor living space and offer optimal entertaining capabilities.

Available Option

Deck Cover


Our heavy timber deck covers are made to provide superior protection and shade for your outdoor living space. We offer both shed style and gable style deck covers that you can easily customize to meet your needs.

Door Hardware Options


Knife Plates

Horse Friendly Knife Plates


Our horse-friendly knife plates are steel connection hardware pieces that are hot-dipped galvanized and powder coated for added protection. The difference between this option and our standard is our horse-friendly knife plates are bolted directly into the structural footing and feature an I-shaped design that raises the bottom of our posts to a pre-determined elevation. One benefit of this method is that it creates a sleek, polished appearance for your posts once your finished surfaces are complete. Instead of being raised on concrete pedestals, your posts will appear as though they’re sitting right above the finished pavement, creating a seamless look for your structure. Additionally, with our horse-friendly knife plates, you don’t have to worry about your horses tripping or injuring themselves on pesky concrete pedestals surrounding your posts. For added peace of mind and a better look for your exterior, our horse-friendly knife plates are well worth the investment.

Knife Plates

Standard Knife Plates


Our standard knife plates are powder-coated steel connection hardware pieces designed to fit seamlessly with our pre-cut heavy timber posts. These knife plates make it easy to anchor our posts to your foundation while keeping our exterior wood framing components off the ground and protected from damage associated with moisture, dirt, and other environmental irritants. How it works is your crew will install our knife plates on elevated concrete pedestals poured above your structural footing. After bolting down your knife plates, your crew can insert our posts directly into them, with all posts cut off-site to ensure a snug fit. Our standard knife plate offering is a practical option for clients located in areas susceptible to heavy rain and snow, considering its raised design creates a solid, weatherproof barrier between the ground and posts. This option is also ideal for clients who aren’t sure what their finished grade will be, as this method is more malleable to uneven or sloped lots.

Available Option

Standard Door Handle


Our standard door handle, the Schlage Latitude Keyed Entry Lever, features a minimalistic design that will match any décor.

Insulation Options

Shown for visual purposes, as DC Structures does not provide insulation with material packages


Insulation Type

Insulating Concrete Forms


Insulating concrete forms are concrete walls sandwiched between two layers of polystyrene foam. This insulation material is known for its ease of installation, durability, and ability to prevent air leakage, making it a great insulation material for residential and commercial projects. The multi-layer design of IFCs and concrete fill provides an airtight barrier around the walls of a structure, offering exceptional insulation and comfort.

Insulation Type

Foam Insulation


Foam insulation consists of polystyrene, polyisocyanurate or polyurethane, which are types of plastic. This type of insulation is known to be ideal for attics, roofs, walls, and flooring, as its airtight qualities help prevent heat loss and keep energy costs at a minimum. We offer two types of foam insulation, including rigid foam and spray foam. With rigid foam insulation, rigid foam panels are typically applied to the interior and exterior walls, roof, and foundation. For roof insulation, we install Hunter polyiso insulation panels to provide superior protection for our custom structures. With spray foam insulation, any cracks, holes, or gaps in your structure can be coated with a simple spray foam to ensure maximum insulation.

Insulation Type

Cellulose Insulation


Cellulose is an insulation material made from recycled paper products that has a consistency similar to down feathers. Its shape and size allow it to fit in hard-to-reach and oddly shaped areas, including attics and areas with obstructions like ducts or wire. We offer two types of cellulose insulation for clients to choose from: loose-fill and blown-in. With loose-fill cellulose insulation, dry cellulose is blown into the walls or attic to fill cavities or cover existing insulation. With blown-in cellulose insulation, cellulose is blown onto open walls like spray foam to coat the exterior.

Insulation Type

Fiberglass Insulation


Fiberglass is a lightweight material commonly used as a thermal insulation solution for residential and commercial buildings. Known for its puffy texture, fiberglass is created when glass is heated until molten and then pushed through tiny holes, resulting in thin strands of thread that are bundled together to form the fibrous material. Its malleable qualities make fiberglass an excellent insulator that can be molded into various shapes, and one that offers superior strength and soundproofing qualities. It is regularly used in batts, rolls, and loose-fill insulation.

Available Option

Structural Insulated Panels


Otherwise known as SIPs, structural insulated panels are energy-efficient building solutions engineered to create an airtight weather barrier around your structure. Designed with an insulating foam core between two structural board layers, structural insulated panels allow us to better air seal our buildings and meet high performance building codes. Clients can choose from two types of foam for their board insulation: polyurethane or expanded polystyrene (EPS). Polyurethane is generally more expensive than EPS because it boasts a higher R-value—or thermal resistance—per inch and is more resistant to moisture and fire. However, EPS insulated panels are an excellent cost-effective option for clients living in climates where R-value is less of a concern.

Foundation Options

Shown for visual purposes, as DC Structures does not provide foundation with material packages


Foundation Type

Crawl Space


Crawl space foundations are the standard for most conventional homes in warmer climates. This elevated foundation type is made of short concrete walls that are typically four feet tall and rest on concrete footers. In comparison to stem wall foundations, crawl space foundations may seem extremely similar, as both utilize concrete walls to form the perimeter support system and piers for structural support. However, the primary difference is that the top layer of a crawl space foundation is created with wooden floor joists while a stem wall ceiling is made of a concrete slab.

Foundation Type

Daylight Basement


Like a full basement foundation, a daylight basement foundation is traditionally dug eight feet deep or more into the ground and anchored by footings placed below the frost line. The main difference between these two foundation types though is that daylight basement foundations have one or more walls that open to the outside and are often designed with windows or doors that allow natural light to pour through the space. Commonly referred to as “walk-out basements,” this foundation type is perfect for clients planning to build their structure on a hillside or sloped lot, as one or more walls can be built into the hillside while walls on the descending slope offer stunning property views.

Foundation Type

Full Basement


A full basement foundation is ideal for clients living in climates susceptible to extreme weather storms like blizzards and tornadoes. This type of foundation is typically dug eight feet deep or more into the ground and built with concrete structural walls that rest on footings installed below the frost line. This construction method not only ensures your foundation is protected from cracking or buckling during ground freeze but also keeps your structure rooted firmly to the ground. As a result, you can enjoy a foundation that preserves its strength and stability over time—all while providing you and your family with a haven in unfavorable conditions.

Foundation Type

Stem Wall


If a monolithic slab foundation isn’t feasible or recommended for your property, stem wall foundations are a great alternative for your build. Unlike monolithic slab foundations where the concrete is poured all at once, stem wall foundations are created by pouring concrete in segments. This process starts by pouring a concrete footer at the ground level then stacking cement blocks to form a perimeter wall that rises to the finished slab elevation. Once the wall is finished and piers are installed for structural support, the final concrete slab is poured to create the top layer. This foundation type is often used in areas susceptible to flooding because of its elevated height, as well as sites where a lot of fill dirt is required. Unlike a monolithic slab foundation where your electrical and plumbing is built into the concrete, a stem wall foundation allows easy access to plumbing and electrical hookups. This gives clients the ability to fix issues as they arise without having to jackhammer through their concrete.

Foundation Type

Monolithic Slab


The standard offering for our pre-engineered building kits, monolithic slab foundations—or slab-on-grade foundations—are some of the easiest and cheapest foundation types available. A monolithic slab foundation is created by pouring concrete all at once to form the base of a structure, with the concrete poured thicker on the outer areas to support the structural walls. This results in an extremely solid foundation that is easy to maintain and energy efficient. However, it’s important to note that there are limitations to where you can build a monolithic slab foundation, as this type of foundation is not allowed or recommended in areas susceptible to flooding and ground freezing. That said, monolithic slab foundations are a great option for clients planning to build on a subdivision or developed land in relatively mild climates like Oregon or Washington.

Post Frame Construction


Post-frame construction is an engineered wood-framing building method that utilizes large pressure-treated wood posts or laminated columns encased in concrete to create the structural frame of a building. Synonymous with pole barns, post-frame construction relies on the strength of its posts to support the upper floors and roof system. This construction method is often used for low-rise buildings like warehouses and agricultural facilities, as the posts in a post-frame building can handle greater loads than stud walls and are able to be spaced farther apart. When used in combination with clear-span truss construction, post-frame construction can create the ideal framework for a covered riding arena.

Available Option

Hybrid Framing


As mentioned above, clients have the option of using a combination of conventional framing and timber framing or post and beam construction for their projects. This building method is referred to as hybrid framing and is commonly used in 21st century timber frame homes to create a more affordable timber frame solution for clients. If you’re looking to cut costs in less important areas of your structure such as storage closets and bathrooms, our hybrid framing option is a great alternative to traditional timber framing and post and beam construction.

Available Option

Cross Laminated Timbers


Cross laminated timbers are multi-layer mass timber panels that provide superior insulation and protection. These panels consist of three to four layers of cross laminated board lumber that are glued together to create an airtight building solution. Comparable to steel and concrete in terms of durability, cross laminated timbers offer the strength of the former without being nearly as heavy or dense. This allows for a much easier and faster installation process. Considered to be the future of mass timber production, cross laminated timbers also boast a lower carbon footprint than concrete or steel and often utilize small-diameter trees to make harvesting more efficient.

Available Option

Timber Framing


Timber framing is one of the oldest building methods still practiced today. Similar to post and beam construction, timber framing utilizes large heavy timbers to form the structural frame. However, the primary difference between these two building methods lies in the method used to secure the frame’s joinery, as post and beam homes employ metal fasteners and connectors while timber framing uses mortise and tenon and other types of traditional joints. Because of this, timber frame structures are generally more expensive to build than post and beam and conventionally framed buildings due to the precision and skill required to properly execute this style. That said, timber frame homes today are commonly designed with a combination of timber framing and conventional building methods to achieve the same look and feel as a traditional timber frame home at a much lower cost.

Available Option

Post & Beam Construction


Post and beam construction is a time-tested building method that utilizes large heavy timbers joined by metal fasteners and connectors to create an extraordinarily durable frame. The walls of a post and beam building are typically placed on the outside of the frame, resulting in beautiful interiors characterized by their exposed structural timbers and high ceilings. Because of the strength of this building method, post and beam structures do not require load-bearing walls to support the upper floor and roof. This means clients can enjoy wide-open interiors throughout their structure and more creative freedom with their design.

Available Option

Conventional Framing


Conventional framing, or light-frame construction, is the most common building method for residential and light commercial buildings in the U.S.–namely because of its affordability, durability, and ease of construction. Conventional framing utilizes dimensional lumber or engineered wood that is regularly spaced and nailed together to create the structure’s enclosure. This results in a solid wall frame that is both cost-effective and structurally sound. Because conventional framing relies on load-bearing walls to support the upper floors and roof, this construction method can be somewhat limiting in terms of what you can do with your design. However, clients can use a combination of conventional framing and timber framing or post and beam building methods to create wide-open spaces in important areas of their structure while cutting costs in less trafficked rooms.
