DC Hybrid Home

Last February we raised the frame for this hybrid home on the outskirts of DC. The hybrid design incorporates timberframing in the great room, kitchen, dining room, and main entry along with a handful of exterior timber components. The exterior timber trusses and accents are placed after the wall enclosure is complete.

The great room for this home has Douglas fir trusses with through king posts and split double-sawn curved bottom chords, angled struts, and a SIP roof enclosure system.
