Simple, Clean Lines
What you might expect to find in a traditional timber frame like hammer-beam trusses, curved braces, and decorative corbels is not necessarily what you will end up seeing in a modern timber frame home.
While still incredibly impressive craftsmanship, these homes will usually feature straightforward cuts and simple visual joinery. Just like traditional timber frames, you can expect to see tall soaring ceilings but flat or shed roof designs and very minimalistic detailing. The Garibaldi timber frame is a great example of a home with simple, clean lines.
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.
