This is a beautiful modern timber frame home with spectacular living over 3 floors.

It features show-stopping features inside and out. The client loved the look of huge knee braces. On approaching the home you are struck by the use of heavy timbers and joinery on the 6 exterior structural braces supporting outer decks and extended roof overhangs.

The middle floor sees the open plan, south facing kitchen, dining and living area with a large walk-out deck. The sanded and stained douglas fir continues to the railing posts and exterior decorative rafters.

We were able to apply our creativity and expertise in this project through the use of structural steel and timber connections to overcome structural challenges to create an open concept modern timber frame home.
