Timber Frames

Beauty and craftsmanship that transcend the generations

Timber framing is a simple but elegant building system using large wood posts and beams that are carefully fit together with interlocking joinery — mortise and tenon joints secured with wooden pegs. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, timber frames are very strong
— in Europe, it is not uncommon to find timber frame
structures dating to the 13th and 14th century.

In America, we are losing far too many of our beautiful old timber framed barns due to abandonment, neglect or destruction by developers.

“This is just a quick note to let you know that I’m thrilled with my new barn! It has exactly the look I wanted, and it’s a great barn to work in. I’m finding that it’s an easy barn to keep clean and organized, so that gives me more time to spend with my horses. I can’t say enough about our foreman and crew. Their workmanship is just beautiful, and I’m still finding some of the nice details they built into the barn. In all, it’s been a great experience, and we certainly recommend King to anyone looking for a quality barn.”
