What are the benefits of Timber Frame Homes?
Timber frame homes are constructed and even appear similar to post and beam homes. The main difference is that the timbers are cut into a square profile, while post and beam homes have a round full log profile. Often, exposed timbers are used to enhance the interior of the home, while rustic or traditional siding options are used for the exterior.
Pricing for a timber frame home is comparable to a similarly sized post and beam home.
Timber frame construction offers flexible design and construction alternatives. Home location, environment, climate and sun exposure will impact the home design, materials and even the position for your home.
Timber frame homes are energy efficient. Quality construction techniques, including closed cell gaskets and grooved posts and beams, minimize or eliminate air infiltration.
Advantages of a timber frame home:
- Timber frame homes offer flexible design options.
- No settling issues when compared to a custom full scribe home.
- More affordable framing and home wiring.
- Reduced maintenance when compared to full scribe log homes.
- Reduced construction and materials cost when compared to a full scribe log home.
- Improved energy efficiency.
- Option to use traditional siding with timber frame homes.
