Timber Frame System







Timber framing is a specific type of Post and Beam construction that uses traditional wooden joinery to connect members. The most common connection is the use of a peg (trunnels or tree-nails) to secure a mortise and tenon joint.

Timber frame structures exist today that have stood for 2,000 years or more, a testimony to their strength and durability. Timber framing in America and abroad has enjoyed resurgence since the mid-1970s. Like their predecessors, today's timber frames are strong and durable structures, featuring the amenities of modern stick-built homes. Timber framing is used today for its unique styling, its exceptional strength and its unique character. It is found in any place where the beauty of exposed beams and open spaces are desired.
