Why Timber Frame?
Timber Framing is the centuries old craft that has enjoyed a revival in fine homes across the country and more recently in the Wisconsin area. The brilliance of a modern day timber frame home, with the exposed smoothly planed timbers and ornate truss systems, creates a breathtaking view when you enter one of these homes. The hand crafted timbers are connected using joinery called mortise and tenon. This joinery is permanently locked together using oak pegs which eliminates the need for glue or metal fasteners. The beauty and superior strength of these massive timbers enables homes to be constructed with towering ceilings and open floor plans without the use of interior load bearing walls. This allows you the home owner complete flexibility to place full or partial walls wherever you desire and maintain the open view of the aesthetically pleasing timber structure. Living areas flow easily into one another, creating new combinations of kitchen, dining and entertaining possibilities.
Considering a conventional home or log home?
On the outside a timber frame home can be as conventional as your neighbors, incorporating the use of most any form of siding and blends well with settings in the city, small town, lake home or country home. A log home typically blends well only in limited settings.
* Timber frame can also be unique from the outside, which is more typical, as it is with the North Woods Timber Frame Model Home. This home was designed and built by North Woods Timber Frames in conjunction with Black River Timber Frames. This model showcases this construction from timber frame deck to a kingpost truss system set in massive stone columns. Expansive arched windows follow the contour of the arching kingpost both inside and outside the towering Great Room that over looks Lake Redstone. This model also demonstrates that a timber frame can blend well as an addition to an existing conventionally built home. I feel, if you choose to tour this model, you will agree it is anything but ordinary from the inside or outside.
