Oak Ridge Timber Company
For hundreds of years the craft of timber frame has combined engineering & creative skills to erect such structures and many still stand hundreds of years later. Why do these timbers last so long? …the stability of the frame. Timber frame construction provides aesthetically beautiful structures in which all the loads and forces are taken by large bearing timbers. The posts and beams transfer the weight of the structure to the frame and foundation. The frame supports the structure therefore allowing large interior rooms, flowing spaces and vaulted ceilings.
The modern world we live in today is continuously trying to resurrect the old on how buildings were constructed, what actually worked and timber frame worked. Although many families are erecting timber frame projects, there are many that feel this is a luxury and have dismissed the idea when doing a new build or a renovation. In recent years, the cost of a timber frame project has decreased due to advanced manufacturing facilities that offer exact precision as well as different species of lumber with different kiln dry lengths of time. Rest assured the timber quality is not jeopardized during this process. Oak Ridge Timber Company provides only the highest quality timber to our clients.
