Tedd Benson

Custom builder Tedd Benson is the founding owner of Bensonwood and has authored four seminal books on timberframing, the first of which, Building the Timber Frame House, was instrumental in the revival of this centuries-old form of building with heavy timber. Over four decades, Benson has steadfastly championed high-performance, sustainable home building with an emphasis on innovation, quality, and social responsibility. He is a frequent keynote speaker and session presenter at conferences around the U.S. and overseas. Over the past 15 years, his search for a new and better way to build has resulted in an exclusive design/build system called Open-Built, and recently in the founding of a new company, Unity Homes, which specializes in off-site fabrication of high-performance homes.
