What is the cost of a timber frame?

The overall cost of a timber frame home is comparable in cost to that of a conventionally built custom home, even though there is little comparison in quality. If you take into consideration that timber frame homes are usually more energy efficient than conventionally built homes, and that timber frames will stand for centuries, it’s clear that a timber frame is the superior long-term investment.

Costs range from $30.00 to $35.00 per sq. ft. of timber framed area (expect more for a single story). Stress skin enclosures run around $20.00 to $25.00 per sq. ft. of living area. Timber framing is like anything else: more complex is more expensive. One can expect the cost of a contractor finished timber frame home to be $175.00 per square foot and up.
