What do the terms Exposed Beam or Timber Frame refer to?
Golden Eagle has two types of timber frame packages:
- Exposed Beam: We use the words Exposed Beam Timber Frame when the timber frame home isn't framed structurally with timbers. We can save our customers up to 50% when we engineer and build the home conventionally and then just add the timber or log accents for aesthetics.
- Structural Beam: Structural Beam Timber Framing is when the "beams" or timbers create the structural skeleton of the home.
