Why Texas Timber Frames

http://texastimberframes.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/hundegger.jpg
The driving force behind our ability to execute complicated structures with efficiency and speed is rooted in our company history. The two master craftsmen and the lead designer at Texas Timber Frames used to cut our frames by hand, crafting each piece using the traditional tools of a hammer and chisel. Our company now utilizes cutting-edge technology in our CNC fabrication process to efficiently craft our timbers to incredibly small tolerances–up to 1/16 of an inch. This allows our master timber framers to lead the erection of our mortise and tenon frames to their exact standards.
Furthermore, we use only the highest quality timber for our structures and ensure that all materials are responsibly harvested. Our wide selection of timber options includes Douglas Fir, White Oak, Red Oak, Mixed Oak, Western Red Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, and Cypress. Other materials, such a reclaimed or specialty hardwoods, are available upon request.

Premium, high-grade timber.

We have our demanding standards for growth rings per inch (how fast the tree grew); preferring slow growth trees that will resist checking, twisting, and severe shrinkage. We also use Free of Heart Center timber to prevent severe checking, and store it covered and out of the hot South Texas sun to prevent uneven drying and bleaching.
Free of Heart Center Timber
Free of Heart Center (FOHC) timber is cut so that the timber does not include the heart of the tree. As a timber dries, the exterior dries faster than the interior- this is the cause of 90% of checking in a timber and cracking along the surface relieves the pressure caused from this process. FOHC timber doesn’t check as severely or as deeply as Boxed Heart. For assured customer satisfaction, spending a little more up front for FOHC vs. Boxed Heart prevents call-backs and possible replacements.

Truss Designs
From traditional to ornate, nothing is beyond our reach, and each truss is fully engineered. We pre-fabricate and pre-assemble timber trusses to be delivered and installed on the job site. We offer an array of joinery options including mortise and tenon, internal, and steel plate joinery.

Timber Frame

Timber Frame is a refined wood building style that utilizes heavy timbers with interlocking wood-to-wood joinery, with mortise and tenon fasteners. Timber Framing is similar in style to Post and Beam, with a major difference being the use of mortise and tenon joinery, as opposed to plated style joinery. This method of construction allows you to see the supporting vertical and horizontal timber framework of the structure, giving you the flexibility of open floor-plans due to the interior walls not being needed to carry any structural load. Texas Timber Frames has perfected this building method utilizing full dimension timbers in a variety of dimensions, textures, species and grains.

Post & Beam

Post & Beam is a traditional wood building style that features post and beam construction. Post and beam construction allows the vertical and horizontal beams to support the weight of the structure. This eliminates the need for interior, load-bearing walls allowing the open floor plan designs to showcase the wood structure. Our sister company, Sand Creek Post & Beam, offers this building method utilizing full dimension, rough sawn wood, with metal plated joinery and traditional, rough sawn board and batten siding.

Post Frame

Post Frame is an efficient building style that features pre-manufactured wood-framed trusses. With these pre-manufactured trusses and laminated and treated 6 x 6 wood posts, it allows for clear span spaces up to 80 feet without the need for interior posts, a more rapid construction calendar and less overall construction costs. Our sister company, Barn Kings, produces a versatile, cost-effective building for those customers that want the look of a traditional wood building with board and batten siding, with the interior flexibility of a pole barn.

Mass Timber

Mass timber panel products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glue-laminated timber (gluelam) are used in many applications in multi-family and commercial construction—e.g., floors, roofs, shaft walls, bearing walls and partition walls. In many instances, the panels are left exposed on one side to take advantage of the aesthetic appeal of the timber.

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is made up of layers of dimensional lumber stacked perpendicular and glued together to create structural panels. CLT panels are typically made of layers of three, five or seven and because they offer two-way span capabilities can be used for floors, walls and roofs.

Glue-laminated timber (glulam) is made from stacking dimensional lumber on edge and bonding them together with moisture-resistant adhesives. Glulam is commonly used for floors, beams, columns and arches.
