Hybrid Timber Frames
Discover how you can add a touch of timber frame to your new home with hybrid timber frame construction! The beauty of a timber frame is that you can use it to frame your entire home or you can use it to partially construct your home. It’s the perfect option for those looking to add a touch of exposed wooden beams and it can be more budget friendly, depending on the design.
What makes a for a good hybrid house design? Cross gable houses are perfect as they feature two or more gable roof lines that intersect. For example, if there is a center gable that is timber framed, the wings can be stick framed with conventional framing tying in the ridges perpendicular. This allows for the two different framing systems to blend easily. It’s more difficult to tie in conventional roofs to a timber frame roof if they run parallel to one another.
Above showcases an example of a hybrid timber frame we worked on. The client’s chose to add a timber frame foyer and great room, measuring 14′ x ’24’. The remainder of the home is being stick built on-site by the client’s local builder.
