What are timber frames?

Timber Frame is a traditional method of post and beam construction defined by the use of wood to wood joinery such as mortise and tenon. The joinery is held together using hardwood pegs or trunnels.

Timber Frame is a method of construction and can be used to achieve most any architectural style. Although timber framing is rooted in antiquity, modern design and materials have made it once again a popular way to build. Examples of timber frame abound in many parts of the world including the Tudor homes of England and the traditional homes of Japan.
