Modern Timber Frame Homes
Styles of Timber Frame Homes
Whether you’re looking for a modern timber frame house or a contemporary timber frame house, Logangate has a solution for you. Logangate offers flexibility in timber frame homes design and has multiple styles and sizes to meet your design needs.
Why have standard flat drywall ceilings when an expansive timber frame home can be yours for about the same price range? At Logangate, we prefer the latter. Logangate’s modern timber frame homes utilize a post & beam construction providing vaulted wood ceilings supported by the strength of douglas fir timbers.
Modern Timber Frame House
Modern pre-assembled Timber Frame Home Kits mean our Wall & Roof components are built in a controlled factory environment for the highest level of craftsmanship. Modern building practices make preassembled homes of higher quality than traditional homes that are built entirely on-site. Logangate’s modern timber frame homes can be shipped anywhere and allow for much faster dry-in times. Overall, this means less wait time for living in your contemporary timber frame house!
View the chart to the right to see how Douglas Fir compares to other timber species. The term post & beam refers to a vertical post built into the wall, and the beam refers to the Douglas Fir rafter coming down on the post. When necessary, we use simple powdered coated steel plates to make timber framing connections on our timber frame kits and our prefab A-frame home kits.
Our Timber Frame Homes
You can customize the timber frame home floor plan, choose either 24ft. or 28ft wide, and expand the length by 4ft. increments of 36ft., 40ft. 44ft. etc. Select a timber frame floor plan, then design it to make your prefab timber frame home kit… your home. Our 12/12 roof pitch allows each timber frame kit home to have a loft upstairs. We have in-house drafting in Autocad with a full set of floor plans, elevations, and construction details all provided as part of our service.
Modern Timber Homes
Our prefab A-frame homes and home kits are in line with modern architecture. The simplicity of form, functional, flexible, and flowing spaces highlight our timber frame home designs. We often use exposed structural members with both Timber and Steel syncing old and new world design. Often designed as Mountain Contemporary Timber Frame Houses, fusing modern architecture with mountain siding and exterior finishes. This architectural style gives a truly breathtaking ambiance that can’t be replicated anywhere else!
Cantilevered Pedestal Home
Our cantilevered homes are unique prefab timber frame homes featuring a main structure that cantilevers 10-12 feet from all four sides of a small foundation, creating visual weightlessness. The small footprint means minimum site disturbance preserving the natural state of the building area. The pedestal foundation literally rises above environmentally sensitive sites such as steep slopes, flood plains, and marshes. This timber frame home kit plan design enables you to “Build where you thought you never could”. Tens of thousands of dollars can be saved with a much smaller Pedestal foundation. Select a model that meets your square foot needs, then design your space.
