The Tapio Residence has one of the highest “Timber Frame per square inch” densities of any project we’ve dealt with! It was a real joy to design this project, since the more timbers a house contains, the more fun it is for us to design! The project was incomprehensibly more complex to design than its successors, since it was designed without the use of a 3-D modeling program.
We did draw it up in our program afterwards, only because it was so impressive that wanted to be able to show a full 3-D model of the house to our clients. An excellent example of higher-density timbers without going too far in the rustic category.
