Revival Timber Frames Invites you to attend the 45th Eau Claire Parade of Homes. June 8 and 9 is the opening weekend and the best part is, it starts right here in Bloomer. Number one on the list of homes to visit this year is the home of Dave and Amanda Rufledt. You won’t want to miss this unique country home with beautifully crafted completely exposed 10x10 white pine timbers. A combination of concrete and hardwood flooring, vanities, and countertops work in perfect harmony with the pastural view afforded by the vast windows. This home stands as structural art.

Builder Dave Rufledt and his partner, Dave Nehring were childhood friends. That friendship has become the foundation for a unique construction business. Northern Builders and Timber Frame Revival can meet any building need from a conventional two bedroom home to a cathedral inspired timber frame, as well as a combination of both which Rufledt’s featured home is. Partnering with Rufledt on the construction of the home, Nehring also specializes in tile and stone work. His attention to detail and artistic eye result in just the right touch in just the right place.

Rufledt invites any opportunity to challenge convention and try something new. His respect and appreciation for the beautiful wood he works with has manifested itself in the timbers standing in the heart of his home.

Together, this team of builders have created a work of art sure to be a shining star in the Parade of Homes.
