Looking to build a timber frame tiny cabin?
Timber framing is the traditional post-and-beam construction you recognize in rustic cabins, Amish barns, and ancient European buildings alike.
What’s common among all timber frame construction is exquisite woodworking, beautiful attention to detail, and structures that last.
At Tiny Timbers, we create beautiful timber frame cabins and tiny homes made with traditional crafting techniques and woodworking you’ll be proud to showcase.
Timber framing uses large posts and beams that are joined with pegs, mortise and tenon, and other decorative joints.
These techniques have been used for thousands of years for good reason: beauty and integrity.
Timber framing is strong and durable, unrivaled by modern construction techniques. It’s so strong that it doesn’t require load-bearing walls running through the center of your home, part of the reason that cabins and timber frame buildings often feel so open: the technique itself allows for this aesthetic and just about any design element or layout that you like.
Because of the size and girth of timber posts and beams, timber framing has more structural integrity than many buildings constructed with modern techniques.
Thick timbers and warm, exposed wood can make even large spaces feel warm and inviting, and because our techniques and finishes can be tailored to your aesthetics, timber framing can feel mountain-rustic, a more refined New England style, or casual. Options abound.
Much of the beauty of timber framing comes from the craftsmanship and woodworking requisite for strong and durable joints.
Joints are where two frame pieces or timbers come together. They can range from simple pegged joints to more decorative mortise-and-tenon joints, dovetailed, and lap joints, among others. All of our joints, timbers, and beams are custom designed and engineered to fit the individual requirements and desires of every timber frame cabin project we take on.
At tiny Timbers, our team takes great pride in mortise and tenon joinery that will last for decades and serve as a beautiful focal point of your new home.
