Timber framing construction is a method of building with heavy timbers. Traditional timber framing is the method of creating structures using heavy squared-off and carefully fitted joined timbers and the joints are secured with large wooden pegs.
Timber framing is found in buildings from around the 19th century.
The popular three basic types of timber frames are the box frame, cruck frame, and aisled frame.
Using timber framing for buildings gives many aesthetic and structural benefits, the timber frame compliments open plan designs allowing for complete enclosure. This provides a good structure for insulation and energy saving.
Timber frame buildings have many benefits:
- fast to construct
- many sections can be prefabricated
- frame ready for windows and roofing
- carvings and moldings can be incorporated to personalise the structure.
