McMinnville, OR


Job Type


We are looking for an experienced, motivated, and quality-oriented lead carpenter/foreman to craft high-performance enclosures and work along with our busy timber frame shop in McMinnville, Oregon. This hardworking craftsman needs house framing and general carpentry experience and an interest in building the best, high-performance high-craft homes possible.

The position will include pre-fabricating walls and installing on-site for our enclosure projects and lending a hand in our timber frame shop as necessary. We work locally and regionally; you can expect a varying commute to jobs as needed and time working under roof at our McMinnville shop.

This job requires the ability to perform tasks in all areas and aspects of timber and general framing. The aptitude to work with tools and timbers are essential, along with the ability to lift and manipulate loads of up to 50 lbs. and more.

While we are looking for a demonstrated level of skill and experience in a framing setting, the addition of an understanding of high-performance building envelopes, site and shop tools, CNC and/or CAD experience will all be valued but not required.

About us:
This position is full year, full time plus with a great benefits package. The benefits include 70% company paid medical, paid holidays and PTO, overtime, a 401k plan, profit-sharing as available, and we are also a 30% employee-owned company (ESOP) on our way to full employee ownership. Think you’d like to join us, but are not sure about your experience? Send us some details about what you have done and why you’d like to become part of our team. We’re glad to consider you!
