Handcrafted Log & Timber

Timber Frame Construction

One of the oldest and enduring methods of construction, traditional timber framed homes and timber frame hybrid homes (built to look like true timber frames) offer amazing energy efficiency and soaring, open interior spaces. Some buildings created this way have stood for over a thousand years.

Timber frames are just what they sound like: large frames crafted from heavy timbers that form the structural support of the home. Since the roof and walls are self- supporting, this allows for high, open ceilings and large great room spaces. But the beautiful joinery is just as stunning in a cozy, smaller space.

Traditionally, the timber frame is finished by “infill”, or framed walls on the exterior of the frame. Prefabricated structural insulated panels (SIPs) are also an excellent option as infill for superior energy efficiency because they create a very tight building envelope.
