Timber Frame Construction – Timeless and Versatile
One of the hottest design styles for custom homes is Timber Frame construction. The ancient concept creatively integrates the warmth and charm of wood features with contemporary design elements.
Whether the home is in an urban area or in a pastoral setting in the middle of nature, a Timber Frame home can fit the terrain with its old world charm of a solid wood vertical post and horizontal beam superstructure. Today’s trendy composite materials create a balance leaving the home distinct and contemporary.
Why Choose Timber Frame Construction?
The exterior superstructure of posts and horizontal beams is left exposed on the interior with the walls allowing for stone, plaster, drywall, siding and distinctive architectural components that makes each structure unique on both the exterior and interior.
The combination of material also leaves the home with little routine maintenance for the homeowner.
