With two additional bedrooms in the daylight basement, this hybrid timber frame home lives well and ages well.
These plans are designed with care and effort as well as procedures to ensure that all information is as accurate as possible. Timber framing is the method of creating framed structures of heavy timber jointed together with pegged mortise and tenon joints. It has become common to surround the timber structure entirely in manufactured panels, such as SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels).
The walk-out basement offers enough space for a large family room, a large bedroom and a bathroom. To finish the walls, the spaces between the timbers were traditionally infilled with wattle and daub, brick, or rubble. The advantage of this for timber framing in the modern world is less of a dependency on bracing and auxiliary members like minor joists and rafters as the panels can span a considerable distance and greatly increase the stiffness of the timber frame itself.
The straw bales are stacked for the walls with various finishes applied to the interior and exterior such as stucco or earthen plaster.
This method of infilling the spaces created the half-timbered style, with the timbers of the frame being visible both inside and outside the building. This appeals to the traditionalist and the environmentalist as this is using "found" or renewable materials to build with.
