Simple, Clean Lines
As mentioned, you won’t see traditional truss configurations or elaborate detailing in a modern timber frame home. What you might expect to find in a traditional timber frame like king post trusses, curved knee braces, chamfered corners, and decorative corbels is not the norm.
While still incredibly impressive structures, these homes will usually feature very straightforward wall and roof designs. Just like traditional timber frames, you can expect to see tall soaring ceilings but with flat or shed roof designs and very minimalistic detailing, if any.
Despite this minimalism, these modern timber frame homes are far from boring. If anything, their simple designs let you really focus on the natural and raw beauty of the building materials and the home’s surrounding area.
