Nate Cook

Co Founder, Director of Construction

Nate's passion for building began when he was a youngster growing up in central New York state. Much formative time was spent exploring in and around classic timber frame barns. College found Nate at Colby, in the great state of Maine, where a love of adventure in wild places was solidified, and the spark of a fly fishing addiction ignited. A stint in a boatbuilding yard after graduation led quickly into Nate’s first timber framing job. The work resonated with him and he quickly became a student of the combination of artistry and solid functionality that is timber framing at its best. The lure of the vast wilderness to the West (and a little bit of ski bum genetics) led Nate to Montana in 1995. It was a great fit and he continued to hone his skills working with some legends in the timber framing industry (the skiing and fly fishing weren’t bad either).

In 2006, Will and Nate formed Gallatin Timberwrights as a company devoted to the craft of fine timber and log building while simultaneously providing an environment for people to make a living in an artistic and fulfilling manner. Nate considers every day working with the amazing team at GT as an honor and privilege.

Nate lives in Gallatin Gateway, and raised his family here. When not at work, he can be found in the mountains or on the rivers having adventures of one sort or another and thanking his luck to be able to wake up every morning and call Montana home.
