Timber framing is one of the oldest building methods defined by wood joinery, specifically mortise and tenon joints connecting large timbers. The result is a beautiful exposed structure that is sustainable, safe, and built to last generations. The flexibility of designs and soaring ceilings are highlights enjoyed in both residential and commercial applications.
Full Timber Frames
Full timber frames use posts and beams for all structural supports and are completely free standing structures. The finished product can take on a variety of designed looks including a mix of wood and drywall around the frame. While this is the most expensive type of build, it is also the most impressive.
Hybrid Timber Frames
Hybrid frames are a practical approach that integrate timber framing elements with conventional framing. An example would be designing specific rooms with frames or trusses such as the great room, or adding timber accents in other spaces that are conventionally framed to achieve a uniform look. Porches and entry frames are often added for curb appeal
