What is Timber Frame Construction?
- Spanish Fork, Utah
This elegant custom wood barn built was built in 2008; it has three dormers on one side and a 36’ shed roof with six windows and cedar board and bat all around. This barn features five stalls with covered shed. A large office, pigeon coop, wash bay and tack room make up the interior of this highly functional facility.
Timber framed structures use fewer, larger wood posts and beams than conventional construction. Furthermore, the frame is fastened using complex wood joinery such as wooden pegs, rather than nails or other mechanical fasteners. Modern timber frame construction offers increased stability and less dependence on bracing and minor joists than conventional construction – this is what gives the interior of timber frame homes and barns their large and lofty feel.
Timber frame construction also offers the advantage of time, as these structures can be erected quickly; in many cases a timber frame barn or home can be erected in a matter of days, and ready for windows, mechanical systems and roofing in a week or two.
There is a rich American tradition of using timber frame construction, dating back to the earliest settlers in Virginia in the 1600’s. Today timber frame construction is experiencing a resurgence thanks to recent advances in computer precision-cut timbers, adhesives and insulation materials.
DC Building specializes in high-quality custom wood construction, including pole barns and timber frame construction.
