Timber Frame Home Case Studies

Timber Gestalt

Timber work is featured in every part of this property, from the main entry and great room to the porches, pool house, and tennis pavilion, tying each component together into a cohesive estate. The Kiln Dried Douglas fir timbers received rough sawn texturing and draw knife edges prior to installation. Scissor king post trusses grace exterior gable ends on the main house and form the pool house open-air pavilion, while modest corbel details add another bit of consistency from the living space beams to the screen porches and terrace. 

Each team at New Energy Works, from the engineers to the timber framers that made and raised the frame, shared skills and knowledge that helped the project go smoothly. The timber work really ties together the structures on the estate. The high level of craftsmanship along with the custom finish–you executed exactly what the homeowners wanted." – Chris Amundson, Builder
