There are a number of good reasons for timber framed buildings;
You may choose timber as it’s quick, or you may be environmentally aware and find it can be a highly sustainable way of building (what about a Douglas Fir frame insulated with straw bales, all grown within a few miles of site?)
But whatever your viewpoint, one of the reasons will almost certainly be that you love the way a traditionally jointed frame looks. The thrill may be having the ingeniously linked timbers all on show (as well as keeping the roof up over your head), or you may just like to reach out & touch the wood for its own sake. A traditional timber frame definitely has ‘Wow Factor’.
At Crossframes we take a pride in building very high quality frames, in oak but also in other timbers.
