Old world timber style homes are easy to spot in Europe. That’s because the craftsmen of yesteryear placed the timber frames on the outside of the structures, announcing to passersby that this home was built to stand the test of time.
But by today’s standards, that’s not an energy efficient way to build. Nor does it protect the timbers from the damaging effects of weather. This is why modern timber frames are within the air-conditioned space of the home.
But that doesn’t mean you have to be secretive about the sturdy beams inside. With some thought and planning, you can visually communicate your home’s aesthetic appeal to the world.
