Hybrid Timber Frame Homes
What is a Timber Frame Hybrid?
Hybrid timber frame homes are becoming increasingly popular as more homeowners desire the craftsmanship of a timber frame home at a reduced cost. This is accomplished by replacing traditional timber frame construction processes like handcrafted joinery with more efficient and cost-effective modern processes like steel joinery and fasteners. The result achieves the timeless timber frame aesthetic at a fraction of the cost of traditional timber frame construction.
