While the heart of this home is most certainly the Knox family, the bones are a beautiful Douglas Fir Timberframe. Designed with symmetry on a 4x6 grid, this frame creates architectural balance and beauty.
Many versatile and comfortable spaces are created between the Timbeframe bents beams and posts.
This Timberframe design is a custom hammer beam style with arched Collar ties. 10x10 posts & thick 8x bent construction give a very sturdy feel. *Knee braces may be required in areas per engineering.
One of the most beautiful moments in construction is the "Timberframe Raising"
Below are some renderings of what the frame would look like free standing!
