Idaho Timber Frame Homes
What makes Idaho ideal for a timber frame home? There’s the landscape, with dramatic mountain ranges, beautiful lakes and river-fed springs. If you’re a nature lover who enjoys outdoor adventure, Idaho has a lot to offer.
Hamill Creek custom timber frame homes offer many advantages over conventional construction, making it a great choice for those who want an energy-efficient home that can be customized to suit your tastes.
Our timber frame home plans offer:
- Design Flexibility – Timber frame construction allows for a wide variety of floor plans. You can design cozy rooms or you can opt for large, open spaces with vaulted ceilings, which is a popular design trend. The structure of the walls allows for windows to be strategically placed, according to your home’s surroundings and “views of interest.”
- Energy Efficiency – In our timber framing, we offer different insulation options. You can use both Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and a conventional 2×6 wall system, in addition to a vented roof system with rigid foam insulation. This creates high R-values that minimize heat transfer. This is also an eco-friendly solution, as it conserves energy.
- Healthy Living Environments – Large timbers and SIPs prevent exterior to interior air flow to reduce allergens, moisture and insects.
- Low Maintenance – Due to the energy efficiency, you’ll see lower heating and cooling bills.
- Durability – Strong timber with mortise and tenon joints create very strong structures that have withstood natural disasters. Due to the time-honored building process, there is less wood shrinkage than in other wood-based homes.
- History and Craftsmanship – Timber framing has been in practice for thousands of years, and many buildings constructed hundreds of years ago still stand today. Over the years, timber framing has developed into an art form, requiring great skill and attention to detail.
