Paradise Mountain Log & Timber Frame Homes
We are proudly introducing our new line of Timber Frame Post & Beam Homes with an R-40+ with the Sturdy-Wall-System!
The new series from our Big Timber-Frame Division is the Timber House Post & Beam and is built with large 12" x 12" Douglas Fir Timbers that are dead standing and premium grade. They have the hand sawn appearance, or the option of planned two sides or hand hewn appearance two sides. This will create a one of a kind Handcrafted Masterpiece without using the solid log walls. The massive timbers that we build them with are just the next step in using a variation of siding materials. Many choices of materials can be used for the exterior siding between the posts and beam including cultured stone, slate, board & bats or shingle and the list goes on.
We build the 2"x6" Sturdy-Wall panel system for in between the 12" x 12" Douglas Fir Timbers. These panels are 5/8" OSB sheeting, glued & nailed with 2" rigid foam or R-20 insulation, complete with siding and ready for trim. After plumbing & wiring we are insulating with R-21 for complete R-40+ Sturdy-Wall-System. All roofs can be built with either 2" x 12" or Engineered I-joist (BCI or TGI) to R-38+ and more.
Each individual Timber House we build will have the same vivid attention to detail as with all of our Hand-Crafted log homes and of course our Thru-Bolted corner. Each home can also be completely set-up in its shell form on your foundation. All the electrical holes in the timbers are drilled for the wire passages. This of course can save you time and money.
The fact that these hybrid timber homes have been gaining ground throughout the residential home construction market is really no surprise with their stunning appearance. Not just on the exterior with its natural beauty, but inside as well with the many choices of materials that can be used to enhance the huge posts and beams that dominate the shell perimeters. All the massive, exposed 12" x 12" Douglas Fir Timbers have the hand sawn appearance.
We are very excited to offer these homes that we feel will be the most builder friendly that we have ever produced and by far a step ahead of other post and beam homes. If you hire a professional framing company to install the roof, any home owner with a couple of saws can frame between the posts for their window openings. When the roof is completed and the windows and doors installed, you have a weather tight shell.
We are happy to be able to offer a wider range of Timber House Post & Beam from our Big Timber Division. They are very distinctive & affordable in many styles and profiles for our most discriminate home owner.
