Ty Lapp founded BI Design in 2003 after designing and building his own timber frame home in the San Juan mountains of southwestern Colorado. The architecture of his home was inspired by the simple yet elegant barns which have been built for centuries by Amish craftsman. In addition to the design he also built the home himself, starting with forming the footings to pulling electrical wire, ending with finish trim. With this hands-on experience and knowledge of home construction, he can offer insight into design which you might not receive working with others. BI Design homes are located throughout the eastern & western United States, as far north as Alaska through working relationships with mulitple timber frame companies.

  • Timber frame homes along with traditional (stud framed) dwellings
  • Passion for unique design that enhances your life and reflects your personality
  • Understanding all aspects of design and construction, allowing cost effective construction by designing to be practical, functional and architecturally/aesthetical pleasing
  • Working with the client to generate ideas concerning your needs and vision during the evolution of the design
  • Using various architectural influences to give the home a sense of timelessness
  • Showcasing natural materials while using sustainable materials such as salvaged timbers, steel and composites
  • Integrating design into the natural environment while acknowledging energy efficiency, spatial functionality and sustainability without compensating function and aesthetic form
  • While not a licensed architect, as a architectural designer my goal is to provide you with highest level of service working together to provide you with a home, for how you live
