How is a timber frame enclosed?

The erected frame is typically enclosed with structural insulated panels (SIPS). Drywall or plasterboard is hung on the frame and the panels are attached to the exterior of the frame. Roof panels come with the drywall laminated and are set in place over purlins or common rafters. At this point the home is basically dried in. Other enclosure systems, such as straw bale or clay/straw mix can also be used. We work with you to find out what best suits your needs.

All exterior wall and ceiling sheet rock or plaster board is in place, all insulation is done, and the timber frame remains exposed on the interior of your home. It is a beautiful combination of Old World Craftsmanship and modern building materials.
