:: What is Timberframe? ::
The epitome of classic wood architecture is the timberframe home. It displays how the human hand can enhance nature by refining the wood's strength and beauty. The frame displays the essence of the craft which is the joinery. True timberframing connects timbers without metal fasteners and the structural elements such as beams, posts, rafters, and braces are exposed revealing the natural beauty of the wood. Think of the timberframe home as fine furniture, only on a larger scale.
Timberframe homes utilize some of the most advanced building materials and construction techniques in the housing industry yet these high-tech features are combined with a comfortable, down to earth style. The cost of construction for a timberframe home can vary depending on the size of your home, the complexity of the design, and the building location & local economic conditions, but on average you can count on about 25% more as compared to traditional home construction (stickframe) of the same size and finish. It's like comparing apples to oranges however, once you've stepped foot in a timberframe home you realize the amazing difference in the ambience of the space.
