Begin visualizing your ultimate timber frame cabin design with Woodhouse.
A timber frame cabin is more than just a structure. For some people, it’s a quaint countryside bungalow, while for others, it’s a charming cottage on the shore. Meanwhile, many picture their escape in the form of a mountain lodge or woodland abode, replete with decks and gear closets for year-round adventures.
Whatever vision the word “cabin” conjures up in your mind, it should cater to your unique lifestyle and win your heart every time you see it. Let’s explore various Woodhouse timber frame cabin designs and get you closer to achieving your dream getaway.
Timber Frame Cabin Basics
A textbook timber frame cabin is identified by its simple, single-story construction that usually incorporates a loft and an open living area. Timber frame cabin designs are especially suited for customization because the structural integrity comes from the timbers, not the walls. You have unmatched flexibility to decide how many (or few) walls you want in the interior layout. Even the loft can range from being fully enclosed with multiple rooms to a single, expansive space overlooking the great room below. It’s not just the layout. A crafted Woodhouse timber frame cabin is unparalleled in its flexibility of finishes, colors, siding, and selections wrapped with our trademark strength, longevity, and energy efficiency.
