timberframeconstTimber framed structures differ from conventional wood framed buildings in several ways. Timber framing uses fewer, larger wooden members, commonly using timbers with dimensions in the range of 6″ to 12″. Common wood framing uses many more timbers with their dimensions usually in the 2″ to 10″ range. The methods of fastening the frame members also differ. In conventional framing the members are joined using nails or other mechanical fasteners while timber framing uses mortise and tenon or more complex joints which are usually fastened using only wooden pegs.
