...a little bit about who we are.

America’s First Joinery Service

Founded in 2002, Sauter Timber began in business importing U.S. log and timber homes into Europe. As part of the company’s construction process, we outsourced all of our heavy timbers to a company that notched, cut, drilled and numbered the components with a milling machine to prepare it for construction. Such services were typical throughout Europe, but were nearly nonexistent in North America. So, after researching the market and determining the demand, in 1999, Sauter-Timber LLC was established in Rockwood, Tennessee, making it the first wood component joinery service in the U.S. Little did we realize that our actions then would fuel a “precut revolution” as more and more companies continue to find the cost and labor efficiencies from outsourcing their precision cutting and joinery to specialists like Sauter Timber. In 2010, Sauter Timber expanded our services to include complete Precision Precut conventional framing packages as well as timber/conventional hybrid home packages.

Facility

Sauter Timber operates out of a 17,000 square foot production facility, located on three acres in the Roane County Industrial Park in Rockwood, Tennessee.
