Timber Frame Package Contents & Building System
A timber frame home is a beautiful, economic and flexible choice for rustic living
Timber Frame Homes
For those with a deep desire for a rustic home, our Timber Frames have become a popular choice no matter if they are located in a busy metropolitan suburb or in a rolling country landscape. Here are some points to consider and an explanation of the Honest Abe Log Homes Timber Frame package contents.
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 with exposed timbers on the interior, while allowing for the choice of using more common exterior finishes like conventional siding, brick or stone.
In the construction of our Timber Frame System, 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.
Giving you the flexibility to design the kind of home you’ve always wanted, Honest Abe’s Timber Frame option brings the beauty of natural wood into your home’s interior. The framework is pre-cut, numbered, packaged and delivered to the home site. Our Timber Frames feature large Douglas Fir timbers for the framework and “sandwich” wall panels made of sheetrock, insulation and exterior sheathing. They’re a beautiful, economic and flexible choice for your forever home.
“Honest Abe’s timber frame system is easier to construct than traditional timber frame structures. Honest Abe 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 – direct from our plant in some areas, with our fork lift equipment in tow. 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.
Our Timber Frame System offers old-world country charm with superb flexibility to add color or decorative style to the interior. Our attention to detail can be recognized through the quality of the craftsmanship.
