Timber Frame Packages

What's in a Timber Frame package?

Why choose a timber frame commercial or home project?

Mountain Stream Log & Timber Homes through its manufacturer Honest Abe Log Homes offers Timber Frame design, manufacturing and construction. A Timber Frame Home allows for exposed timbers on the interior and the choice of conventional siding, brick, stone or logs on the exterior. For those with a desire for the richness of wood components, our Timber Frames have become a popular choice whether they are located in a busy metropolitan setting, a peaceful suburb, overlooking mountains or water or on a rolling country landscape.

Honest Abe uses timeless construction methods to create a framework of 8”x 8” Douglas fir vertical posts and horizontal beams. This “superstructure” is left exposed on the interior, while insulated wall panels sheath the exterior. Our Timber Frame System offers old-world country charm with superb flexibility to add color or decorative style to the interior. The attention to detail can be recognized through the quality of the craftsmanship developed in Honest Abe’s 38 years of manufacturing wood homes and commercial buildings. 

Any design or concept for a plan can become a Timber Frame home or commercial structure. Honest Abe’s in-house design team will expertly interpret your ideas into a timber frame plan, or you can bring your own plans or select one of ours. Then we’ll manufacture your custom package. You’ll have the flexibility of combining brick, stone, plaster, drywall, siding and distinctive architectural components to create the finished structure you’ve imagined.
