TIMBERFRAME

Tradition meets modern design

At the heart of our eco-frame houses is a timber-frame. This is a century-old english wood joinery technique, that was developed to build houses without nails.
We use it to create open spaces with or without trusses. Since the frame is visible inside, it becomes a beautiful feature, but you decide, how much or little you want to incorporate into your home.

 

FRAME ALONE

The frame is the main load bearing structure of an ecoframe house and the first thing to go up after the foundation.

FINISHED HOUSE

Later walls, roofs, windows etc are added. The frame stays visible, also inside, after the house is finished.

PRECISION JOINTS

Created and pre-tested in the workshop.
Typical house frames raise in a single day.

DIFFERENT STYLES

With different joints and trusses, surface finish and color treatment a very wide variety of styles can be accomplished.

SIMPLE, FLAT

Using a timberframe on a normal flat roof is a very beautiful way of creating a larger open space.
Remember, amount and spans of the beams can usually be adjusted to taste, as the beams are so big they will easily fullfill their function.

TRADITIONAL, OPEN

Timberframing has many different joints and truss styles. Large open spaces can also be created in a more traditional style.
This particular one is called collar truss.

Timberframe design is one of the first topics during the initial design meetings.
We have tools and pictures to help find the right one for you.
