The Heartland Timber Frame building system can be customized in a variety of ways to achieve very different effects from the same floorplan. Here are some of the ways you can customize your design to express your personal dream:
The origins of the HTH post and beam system is authentically traditional and it beautifully expresses the aesthetic of heritage architecture. At the same time, its clean functional lines fit well into contemporary designs. With European embellishments on windows, eaves, and balconies, your HTH home can fit perfectly as an alpine chalet.
The study plans are mostly drawn with gable roofs, but there is no limit to what you can design. In addition to gables, we build with hip roofs, shed roofs (very contemporary), and gambrel roofs. The roof line can be further embellished with dormers, skylights, turrets, and shed extensions.
TRUSSES AND RAFTERS
Conventionally engineered trusses of 2×4 and 2×6 lumber are unbeatable for economy and strength. But timber trusses or rafters can provide a grand signature statement that perfectly complements a timber frame house. We custom design trusses by the project. Here are four types of custom roofs, all of dry Douglas Fir – unmatched for strength. Each is designed to be visible from below and is covered on top with 2×6 tongue and groove decking.
