There is something very unique about a house constructed with no nails. Timber framing is one of the oldest building methods known to mankind; homes with timber framed roofs date back to about 500 B.C. The “mortise and tenon” joint, still used today, was developed in ancient Egyptian and Roman civilizations.
These building methods were built to last the centuries: You can still visit 12th and 13th century structures, such as the Westminster Abbey in England, that were built using timber framing methods.
A timber frame home today is still a thing of awe-inspiring and durable beauty: The versatility of this building method allows for soaring interior designs, eco-friendly options, and a distinctive handcrafted natural feel. Crockett Timber Frames are built exclusively with Eastern White Pine or Western Douglas Fir.
