Red Suspenders Timber Frames

Timber Frame Homes Cover A family building in Colorado contacted us about designing and building their timber frame home after seeing our work in a number of pavilions we had done near their home in The Woodlands, Texas. Their new home features an unusual timber frame design that not only transfers the rather heavy snow loads present in this mountain location, but also withstands the rather common high winds (80 mph) coming down from Horn Mountain.
We had to deal with these winds during the raising, and they do get your attention. For numerous reasons, we used kiln dried Southern Yellow Pine for the frame. The living room timber frame with its soaring ceiling and the interlacing timbers is further set off by the massive stone fireplace and large ceramic floor tiles.
