Timber framing is a traditional method of building construction that involves joining heavy timbers using mortise and tenon joints rather than metal nails. This construction method was used for centuries before mass production of nails and lumber products made the speedy construction of flimsier “stick frame” homes a possibility.
However, there is a movement back to the tradition of timber frame construction. Timber framing is a truly superior method of creating any kind of building, from homes to barns.
Timber framing offers a wide variety of benefits over other types of building construction:
• Timber framing is durable. Timber framing is a proven technology that results in sturdy, long-lasting buildings. There are many timber frame buildings that are hundreds of years old throughout the United States and Europe.
• Timber framing is versatile. Timber framing lends itself well to open floor plans, giving you plenty of flexibility to design exactly the layout that you want.
• Timber framing is attractive. Exposed timber provides a natural look that most people consider beautiful. High ceilings, open spaces, and the option of plenty of natural light gives you lots of opportunity to design an attractive space.
