Don Downs

SOUTHEASTERN REGIONAL PROJECT MANAGER

NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, TN, AR, LA

Don manages Woodhouse® projects in NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, TN, AR, & LA, both directly and through our Independent Builder Dealer network. Don has a lifelong passion for everything about houses, with a special interest in both traditional and contemporary design. His introduction to the craft of timber framing, back in 1997,  involved hand-cutting timbers and doing frame and structural insulated panel installations at jobsites. This was a natural outgrowth of his earlier experience as a historic restoration carpenter, remodeler, and woodworker. He particularly loved the challenge of applying trigonometry to the layout of intricate timber joints, but was soon drawn to the project management side of the business.  Although he still enjoys the occasional opportunity to use his framing mallet and chisels, he loves being involved with projects from start to finish. Don has a dedication to exceptional customer service, and strives to help each client realize their vision for their project.

A native southerner, Don recently returned to his home state of North Carolina after several years in the Great Lakes region.  Outside of work, Don enjoys listening to acoustic music and playing his guitar, reading both fiction and non-fiction, working on projects around his home, and learning about cars and – big surprise! – houses.

If you have a project you’d like to discuss, give Don a call at 336-528-3202 or email DDowns@TimberFrame1.com. He’s always happy to talk with clients at any stage of their planning.
