The Art of Construction
Modern Architects celebrate and show how the construction was completed. Timber Frame construction has always proudly displayed the huge, natural beams and the finely crafted joinery. A process thousands of years old, interpreted in your modern vision. Timber frame construction was the way homes were constructed from the earliest centuries throughout the globe because they don’t just last one lifetime—they last for generations.
No nails, screws or metalwork is the hallmark of fine Timber Frame construction, instead we use interlocking dove tails, mortise and tenon, scarf joints, housings and keys. Not only are timber frames incredibly beautiful, they are the very best in structural soundness. Dreams that last lifetimes
