Timber frame construction itself is a centuries old art form. Historic yet modern, timber frame homes offer a best-of-both-worlds experience. The style itself is a timeless architectural form anchored in antiquity; however, the exposed posts and beams distinctly express 21st century elegance. The timber frame is an intricate web of parts that both support and beautify a home – every piece is as necessary to the structure as it is to the style.
Timber framing is a specific type of post-and-beam construction made of solid wood timbers, usually joined by mortise-and-tenon joinery and traditional wooden pegs. In timber framing, joinery is practically the definition of the product. Without joinery there is a structure made with post & beam, but it is not a timber frame. Most timber joints are variations on the pegged mortise-and-tenon – a tongue on one timber is received by a slot in the other.
Our frames are precision cut by our factory network using Hundegger K2 amchines to create pegged joinery methods. If you enjoy viewing perfection, this cutting system achieves unbelievable results. The Hundegger K2 is a computer-driven CNC machine that uses CAD drawings, robotic arms, and a variety of heads and bits to precision-cut the intricate parts and pieces that make up the timber frame.
