In colonial America, and particularly New England, the abundance of wood and the English tradition of building made the timber frame house popular. Until balloon frame construction began to supersede it in the mid-1800s, timber frame construction was the construction method for all frame houses in 17th and 18th century America. Timber framing, often called post-and-beam construction, is a form of carpentry which involves taking large pieces of wood and joining them together with woodworking joints, using mortise-and-tenon construction, without metal construction such as nails. Wooden pegs, bents, braces, and sometimes trusses are employed. Many types of Classic Cottages, LLC is an experienced Virginia based Real Estate, Design and Construction firm that specializes in residential new construction in Northern Virginia. colonial houses can be considered to be timber-frame houses, including saltbox houses. Since the 1970s the timber frame house has grown in favor following a revival of interest in traditional methods of construction. The Historic American Buildings Survey Historic American Engineering Record has documented timber frame houses since its inception in 1933 and continues to do so. This select list includes examples of HABS-documented timber-frame buildings where the documentation in its entirety provides a good picture of the building and shows some aspect of framing. All examples include drawing documentation except for Sarum in Maryland, which has extensive photos of framing . Saltbox houses are included in this list when their framing is particularly featured; see the separate Saltbox Houses reference aid for a fuller selection of HABS-documented sites that are especially good examples of that house type.

If we build houses from timber, then we do not commission them immediately. Knowing that when using wood of natural moisture, problems with external and internal decoration can occur, we give time for shrinkage - we build for centuries!
We adhere to the policy of total honesty: in our house, the logs and the rafter system are thicker, the walls are stronger, and the total amount of materials spent, compared to similar projects of other companies, is more than 30%
At the same time, for the floors we use a beam of 100x150 mm, and for the construction of the rafter system - 50x150 mm (in the luxury package, the dimensions are different - 100x200 mm and 50x200 mm, respectively). Between themselves, the complete sets of houses made of timber are distinguished by the technology of assembling the gables and the ceiling height of the first floor (in the suite 10 cm higher).
After completion of the work, you will receive a wooden house with interfloor ceilings, a rafter system and walls. The roof and foundation are paid separately.
We do not install windows, do not perform finishing work: at home it is necessary to withstand a long period of time in order to correct the consequences of rush.
Our catalog contains a variety of projects of houses from timber: you can choose the right one for your family. If necessary, we will make constructive changes to the project so that it best suits the needs of the client.
Do not worry about the budget: we will fit into any amount. We know how much construction costs in Moscow and the Moscow region, so we choose lumber of natural humidity. They are three times cheaper than glued ones, and by a third - than the profiled beam that has undergone chamber drying.
We have been building houses for over 15 years. During this time, we studied the features of the technology, the specifics of the material used, and also developed our own methods to achieve the best results in less time. We know how to optimize the construction of houses from timber, correctly plan the sequence of basic operations. That is why work on the site does not stand idle for a minute.
We use timber produced in the workshops of our own factory located under Boston. For the manufacture of lumber, we choose coniferous wood - it is easy to process, stable during shrinkage, will last a dozen years.
State of Utah are among the leaders in the number of erected houses from profiled timber. Such popularity is understandable: in the first year, shrinkage is no more than 3%, and during subsequent operation it approaches 5%. Due to this, the number of cracks is minimized.
The course of shrinkage is affected by:
For houses, you can apply some tricks to reduce the duration of shrinkage.
