Timber frame homes offer one of the most energy efficient homes on the market today. Our timber frames are typically wrapped in Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS). SIPS create an amazing insulated structure and due to no stud walls, there is minimal air leaks due to the continuous insulation and no thermal bridging.


Timber frame is one of the most durable forms of construction, creating long-lasting, solid structures. The technique of large exposed wooden beams joined together with mortise and tenon joinery and secured with wooden pegs results in long-lasting, solid structures. Many timber frame structures still stand today that are hundreds of years old.
