Crafted timber frame for a home in Porirua

Crafted timber frame for a home in Porirua

A bespoke timber frame was designed for this client with exposed posts, braces, rafters and ridge beams visible from the ground floor, looking up into the roof on the second floor.  The bedrooms have exposed trusses and macrocarpa posts were also used outside as supports for the veranda.  Concealed steel connections were used.  The final house has a real feeling of solidity and warmth to it, with many interesting features. Note the half lapped, dovetail, collar beam joinery.
