Today’s post is a brief look at old-world timber frame designs. The rustic timber frames gives these buildings a timeless beauty.
“The timber frame and soaring ceiling are original to the historically listed building. Pocknell stripped the barn to its frame and re-pointed the brickwork where necessary, giving the buildings a new lease of life.”
“A recent weekend trip to Argyll, in the West of Scotland, included a visit to the extraordinary former farming village of Auchindrain, six miles south of Inverary. Now a museum, the village and its original buildings provide a fascinating and unique insight into a once-common way of rural life. For anyone interested in vernacular architecture and construction, the site is particularly rewarding, with a range of building types including byres, barns, and cottages.”

Most modern timber frame houses use perfect straight timbers. Irregular and easier to find timbers (often salvaged from the woods for free) can create very appealing designs.
