Craftsman Style Timber Framing

Craftsman Style: Low, Cozy, and Horizontal with Angular Detailing

Included Styles:

Bungalow, Cottage, Southwest and Western Ranch

Common Craftsman Timber-Framing Characteristics:

Angular detailing at beam ends and tapered rafters or top chords.

The truss bottom chords and king post will often sport tapered steps and notches-but never too busy!

Oftentimes, beam end detailing and timber orientation is used to embellish the strong horizontal emphasis associated with Craftsman style.
