A timber frame home is a beautiful, economic and flexible choice
Do you love the interior, natural look of wood but want a more traditional exterior or more decorative flexibility on the interior?
If so, then a Timber Frame home is the choice for you. Honest Abe Log Homes offers Timber Frame construction featuring exposed Douglas Fir timbers on the interior, while allowing for the choice of more common exterior finishes like conventional siding, brick or stone.
“Honest Abe’s timber frame system is easier to construct than traditional timber frame structures,” said Josh Watson, Construction Manager for Honest Abe. “Our timber frames require no cranes or special equipment. No special foundation is needed. No special skills are demanded. The framework is pre-cut and numbered, then packaged and delivered to your site.”
Watson said Honest Abe uses timeless construction methods to create a framework from 8”x 8” Douglas Fir vertical posts and horizontal beams.
“This “superstructure” is left exposed on the interior, while insulated wall panels sheath the exterior,” he said.
For those with a deep desire for a rustic home or a home that evokes the early 20th Century Craftsman style, our Timber Frames have become a popular choice whether they are located in a busy metropolitan suburb or in a rolling country landscape. Our Timber Frame System offers old-world country charm with superb flexibility to add color or decorative style to the interior. Attention to detail can be recognized through the quality of the craftsmanship.
To make construction even easier, technical assistance is readily available along with our free construction manual and your blueprints. In many areas our dry-in and in-house construction service is offered.
