Timber framing adds beauty to the design, as well as providing
structural benefits. In addition, it allows the homeowner the ability to plan
and create unique, open spaces that are energy efficient and sound. Other advantages of
timber framing include the following.
lasting - Designed and built to last generations.
beautiful, bright, open spaces - Design allows for
over-sized windows and plenty of natural light. The frame remains exposed,
towering to the ceiling, and visible from the interior of the house.
flexibility - You have limitless choices for your
interior (such as wood, stone, or drywall) and exterior finishing (such as
brick, wood, stone, or stucco). Also, since timber frames can carry
heavier loads than stick framing, your home has the options for larger
rooms, higher ceilings, ad fewer partition walls, giving you more choices
when designing your home.
efficient - Timber frame homes are enclosed with
insulated panels (SIPs) that wrap around the frame in a continuous
envelope, with no break for studs or rafters, as in conventional
construction. This insulation forms an airtight casing, giving your timber
frame home increased energy efficiency and comfort.
