Traditional Style Timber Framing

Traditional Style: Straight, Simple, and Functional with Minimal Detailing

Included Styles:

Colonial, Federal, Georgian, Prairie, and Farm

Common Timber-Framing Characteristics:

Plentiful whitespace with familiar geometric shapes and sizes. Avoiding high timber population density.

Many times, we remove truss webs to keep things open.

Simple angles at beam ends, plain chamfering touches, and avoidance of heavy timber sizing also helps.
