Discover the Beauty of Old World Craftsmanship with Timber Frame Homes by Davis Frame Co.

Building a new timber frame home with warm exposed wooden beams will give you warmth and a unique look second to none. As you research timber frame homes, you may also become familiar with the terms post and beam and barn homes. All these terms are used interchangeably at times and represent a wood home. So what is the difference between the three and how does Davis Frame construct their timber frames? Read below for more about the different framing techniques and which approach Davis Frame uses.

Timber Frame Homes

At Davis Frame Company, we design and craft beautiful timber frame homes. Not only is timber framing the structural component for your new home, but beautiful exposed wooden beams are featured giving your home a unique look. Whether you are looking for a rustic, traditional, craftsman or modern timber frame home, we can help you design the home of your dreams. 

Timber frame construction consists of posts that span unbroken from sill to eave or ridge and are erected in walls and bents. (Bents run perpendicular to the ridge of the roof, while walls run parallel to the ridge). Timber framing consists of traditional wooden joinery, also known as mortise and tenon and are secured by wooden pegs. Refer to the photos below featured for an example of traditional timber framing.

Davis Frame's Timber Frame Homes are hand crafted to meet your specifications. Construction is easy, as the posts and beams are all prefabricated for easy assembly. Our timber frame homes are not only securely constructed, but the exposed wooden beams add a distinct beauty to the interior of the home.

Here you can see the process of constructing one of our timber frame homes. The post and beam method dates back many years, but is still as efficient and beautiful as ever. The timber framing process is usually very quick, and is always a sturdy final product.

Post and Beam Homes

Post and beam home construction is a framework based solely on vertical and horizontal pieces: the posts and the beams. Post and beam homes are constructed in layers, with each floor built independently from the others. Typically, the posts and the beams are joined together by metal brackets.

The Davis Frame Construction Approach

While the terms “timber frame” and “post and beam” are interchangeably used by consumers and by those in the wood home industry, due to the similar looking end-product, the construction does differ.

Here at Davis Timber Frame, our craftsmen build frames using traditional timber framing techniques such as mortise and tenon joinery, resulting in a durable and time tested way to build developed by our forefathers. With the combination of traditional timber framing construction and modern technology, our homes provide you with an incredibly high performing timber frame home that is designed to last for generations.
