Your Floor Plan Designed for Timbers

So you’ve considered all your options and looked deep within and you are positive – your new home is to be a timber frame home. Firstly, congratulations! But, now what? Where do you begin? At the heart of planning for any home is the floor plan. The way in which you will interact with your home is paramount to your emotional well being and lifestyle you wish to create for your home.

Hybrid timber frame floor plans offer the flexibility of utilizing exposed beam construction only in the areas of the home where the visual and structural impact is necessary. You can bypass the need to timber frame in a bathroom or closet, for instance, with hybrid floor plans, and use timbers in select areas like the entrance, great room and kitchen.

Create your own or customize an existing floor plan. With a team of dedicated floor plan designers, you can either customize an existing floor plan, or start from scratch on designing a whole new plan.

So let’s talk about the constraints and flexibility of Hybrid Timber Framing next.
