All of these words describe Timber Frame Construction.

The use of heavy timbers in framing and truss work has a rich history, dating back to the arrival of the Colonists in North America and the pioneering days of westward expansion. One can still admire the grand timber framed lodges constructed by the Railroads as they laid tracks towards the Pacific Ocean, particularly in Glacier National Park located here in Montana.

Timber Frame log homes offer the advantage of spacious open floor plans, magnificent trusses in entryways, great rooms, and throughout the structure. They can be easily insulated, with simplified door and window placement and a wide range of interior finishes. This flexibility also brings forth a captivating beauty. Embracing the natural elements of timbers, either independently or in conjunction with stick frame construction, creates a warm and sophisticated ambiance in the living spaces. Trusses and beams can be customized with desired carvings or finial details, adding a personal touch to the design.x
