Perhaps no architectural style is more identifiable with a timber frame home than a barn. The tradition of timber framing spread from east coast barns to midwest farm homes and eventually to the ranches of the West. We have put a collection of barn and ranch style floor plan concepts together below. See which of these design ideas inspire your custom timber home plan.
Craftsman homes take pride in the natural beauty of natural building materials, so the exposed beams and trusses of timber framing are right at home in this style. Stone chimneys and porches also feature prominently and help tie the homes to the landscape. Craftsman homes are one to two stories tall with low roof lines and covered porches.
European style homes show off timber frame construction at its best. Exteriors feature steeply pitched roofs with narrow overhangs, typically reserving exposed beams for structural supports of awnings and porch roofs. Hipped roofs often replace standard triangular peaks for added interest, and arched windows add European flair. Interiors are spacious and airy, with high ceilings, exposed beams, and natural stone finishes, particularly around substantial fireplaces.
Whether you choose to build in a place like the Canadian Rockies or amongst rolling hills such as the Appalachian range, a mountain style floor plan can take advantage of views and mimic the landscape. Sloped mountain side lots often provide the opportunity for walk-out basements, which are easy to incorporate into our architectural designs. Below we present floor plan concepts as they might look in various mountain landscapes.
Inspired by the architectural styling of Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and Joseph Eichler, the homes in The Moderns™ collection feature simplicity of design as well as visible timbers and post-and-beam elements. The homes offer generous indoor gathering spaces, outdoor courtyards with fireplaces, and private bedrooms.
A timber frame home doesn’t have to stand out from the architectural style of the rest of your neighborhood. You may prefer a more traditional exterior that blends into a suburban setting, but that doesn’t mean it will lack character. Timber framed entries and gable peaked dormers are just a few traits that your traditional timber style home might adopt. Browse some of the examples below.
