Timber Construction

 

Timber framing and "post-and-beam" construction is a general term for building with heavy timbers. Traditional timber framing is the method of creating structures using heavy squared-off and carefully fitted and joined timbers with joints secured by large wooden pegs. Since this building method has been used for thousands of years in many parts of the world there are many styles of framing.

Timber can be enjoyed as full structural frames, or as detail elements in your construction or renovation, often referred to as ‘Timber Integration.’

Over the past years we have designed and built many timber frame structures in a variety styles and levels of complexity. Our structures can be highly energy efficient, always strong and last for generations. More recently, with the development of structural insulated panels (SIPS) used between the individual timbers, insulation value within timber frame homes has also increased.

Our Methods

Traditional timber framing is the method of creating framed structures of heavy timber jointed together with various joints, but most commonly, originally with lap jointing, and then later pegged mortise and tenon joints. Diagonal bracing is used to prevent "racking", or movement of structural vertical beams or posts.

There are many different timber structures that we can build;  like timber homes, shops, garages, workhouses, carriage houses, accents, features, club range buildings and lake front properties. These structures are not only strong and sturdy which can also incorporate many interesting features depending upon ones preferences.

My family is enjoying life in our custom home. The timber you installed helped transform a nice house into a truly unique and great home. My experience working with you was easy and enjoyable from design stage through to construction. I will be recommending you to anyone that mentions they would like to use timber in their home.
