Wood Beams & Timbers
Douglas Fir has been our material of choice for over 30 years due to its superior strength and stability, making it ideal for structural applications. It's a versatile softwood with a light colored, beautiful grain suited for a variety of textures and stain options. As one of the most plentiful species in North America, sourcing it is quick and a sustainable choice. We use Free of Heart Center (FOHC) timber that is sawn from the perimeter of the log. The result is a timber that dries uniformly in one direction, making it more stable and mitigates the issues of large checks and twisting. This premium grade material guarantees the standard of quality you expect.
Free of Heart
While we use primarily Douglas Fir, Texas Timber Frames can source a variety of timber options. Each has a unique appearance and structural strengths that are suited for different applications. Below are a few of the most common, but we have the ability to source any species on the market.
Wood Textures & Finishes
Texas Timber Frames have a wide variety of textures and finishes available for your timbers. From smooth and distressed to reclaimed beams, we have the ability to give your structure more character or accentuate the wood grain depending on your desired look.
When the most rustic appearance available is requested, Texas Timber Frames will source reclaimed timber for projects. This environmentally conscious building option utilizes timbers reclaimed from old buildings such as churches and barns and creates a timeless, historic feel into a new build.
The Most Rustic Appearance
In the market right now, there is a growing demand for using timbers reclaimed from old buildings such as churches, barns, factories, schoolhouses, and the like to be used in the new construction of timber frame homes. This option is environmentally conscious while also giving your home a unique story.
If your preference is to use reclaimed timbers in the construction of your home, contact us at as early in the process as possible, especially if you are looking for a specific species of wood.
Sourcing from Sustainable Mills
We take care to ensure our timbers are responsibility and sustainably harvested. These practices provide more timber growth than harvest each year. In fact, forestland acreage in North America has been stable for more than 100 years.
