Timber frame construction dates as far back as 500 to 100 B.C., with examples found in nearly every culture and on nearly every continent. To this day, some of the tenets remain unchanged. No nails or other fasteners are used. The strength of the timbers and the joinery support the structure.
Timber frame homes are celebrated for:
Artistry · Longevity · Heritage Craftsmanship · Extreme Energy Efficiency · Versatility
Versatility of design is an underrated feature in the collective perception of timber frame construction. Efficient structural design allows for massive expanses of windows – to take advantage of sweeping, Southern Colorado vistas. The beauty of the joinery can be prominently featured in the traditional timber frame aesthetic of a mountain resort style home, or the cleanliness of timber frame lines can be well-suited to more contemporary tastes.
