PROS

Timberframe homes afford high, vaulted ceilings and spacious floor plans. A timberframe home’s layout can be customized to suit any personal taste and individual preference. Dark wood may be enhanced with white-painted drywall to create contrast to the exposed timbers and to provide better lighting than what might be found in log homes which have all exposed wood.

One of the advantages of a timber frame home package is that you can select a house literally off-the-shelf. This will keep your costs down. A timber frame home offers various aesthetic and structural benefits, as the timber frame lends itself to open plan designs and allows for an energy-efficient enclosure.

There is a high demand for this type of home which keeps its value even through a frail economy.
