Why Log & Timber Frame’
Timber frame (or timberframe) is one of the oldest traditions of constructing wooden structures. Just like fine furniture uses dovetails, mortise and tenons and old-world joinery, timber framing is a sophisticated method of ‘post and beam’ joinery that uses wooden pegs in place of steel hardware as fasteners. This art form dates back to early Grecian times and remained the principal method of building construction until the advent of ‘stick framing’ in the mid-eighteenth century.
Modern craftsman carry on this unique timber frame construction creating homes, barns, shops, hotels and churches. Timber framing has experienced a revival in today’s home building as people rediscover this beautiful and functional method of construction.
