Timber frame homes use a historically traditional building technique that joins large timbers to create a strong and beautiful structure. These homes are easily recognized by their exposed timbers that create a stunning and unforgettable visual effect. Often, a timber frame home is grouped into a log home due to the misconception that a timber frame home is a log home.
Typically, timber frame homes are designed with open floor plans, as the need for interior low-bearing walls is eliminated due to the strength of the frame. These homes typically incorporate a SIP (structural insulated panels) as a wall system versus traditional stick framing. The result is a far superior thermal envelope producing a high performance and energy efficient home.
