Custom timber frames from Axe Handle Timber combines old styles of joinery with new methods of structuralization to create new structures that feel good to live, work, and play in. Custom timber frame homes can offer up to 50 percent better energy efficiency than conventional framed buildings due to advances in materials available to the timber framing industry. SIP’s, or structural insulated panels, offer this efficiency which is fairly new to the building industry.

Since well built timber frames can last for over two hundred years, these buildings are considered “sustainable” compared to many other common building choices. Custom built timber frames offer open spaces with in your home that many conventional frames lack. In stead of building long halls and stacked layers of interior framework, timbers carry the load of the roof to the outsides of the timber frame. Naturally, the design of a timber frame allows spacious floor plans inside the timber frame home or work place.
