Custom Timber Frame Home

By Sandy Connolly on December 19, 2014

We build custom timber frame homes that suit the needs of our clients. It’s our speciality. Let’s take a look at an example!

The client (let’s call him Todd) wanted a unique timber frame home where he could host parties, brew beer, and have a place to park his cars. Oh yes, we can do that.

Check it out! The timber frame is complete and the home is ready for a party. Although, on wedding day, it looks like there isn’t room to park a car. I have a feeling that’s for the best 😉

Check out the view from the loft. The braces have a slight curve and frame the window, which is a nice design detail. The frame for this home was cut from hemlock timbers and is rough sawn.timber-frame-party-barn-interior-3

The timber trusses on the exterior of the home are douglas fir. Douglas fir timbers are great for exterior trusses, especially if you want to paint them.timber-frame-porch-gables

    I was just wondering if something like the brewery garage could be added to existing log cabin. We are looking at expanding an existing log cabin with a great room and garage area. I like this layout quite a bit. Let me know.
