The beauty & simplicity of timber frame construction
Timber framing is an ideal structural system for lake and mountain views - something Smith Mountain Lake in the Blue Ridge is well known for. Wood columns, beams, and rafters provide substance, strength, and dramatic design flexibility.
A hallmark of timber frame home building is hand-crafted joinery. The planning, layout and carving of this joinery can be complex, but the finished results are often stunning in their streamlined beauty.
The structural elements of a building hold a powerful appeal when visible - when 'expressed'. Timber framing is a classic example of expressed structure, where the strength and warmth of natural beauty can be seen and, therefore, appreciated.
