Timber Frame Homes construction styles are similar to ‘Post and Beam’ except;
- Lumber dimensions of 8″ x 8″ square are used instead of rounded logs.
- The classic mortise and tenon joinery building method is used, secured by wooden dowels.
- Post and beam (timbers) are exposed from inside and the frame is covered outside with plywood or insulated panels.
For example, the soaring roof trusses in old wooden churches are usually timber framed. Therefore, creating unsupported wide spans, and the lasting strength.
