Designed to promote sustainable living and built
with environmentally sound materials and
processes, timber frame homes are perfect for
discriminating eco-savvy home buyers. These
eco-friendly home packages are developed based on
the custom details of each order and shipped
worldwide to accommodate the building location of
the homeowner. More than 75 of these post and
beam homes are made from renewable resources. As
a result, homeowners enjoy a home with more
beauty and character, and one that's more
efficient than traditional homes.

Energy efficient Post and beam homes Seattle are
sought-after due to the use of premium, Western
Red Cedar. This stable and durable building
material is very energy efficient, resulting in
cost savings for owners. To minimize the
environmental impact of the building process,
these homes are built from carefully premeasured
home packages consisting of the precise amount of
required materials. Every component that will go
into these homes is counted, so any waste is
greatly minimized.

Reduced greenhouse gas emissions What's also
resonating with today's eco-smart home buyers is
the fact that timber frame construction reduces
greenhouse gas emissions because they use less
carbon dioxide in their construction process and
operation. Manufacturers work to protect this
valuable, sustainable resource by only using
timber from forests that are immediately
replanted. Eco-savvy homeowners want to design
their home according to the landscape, and to
conserve as much energy as possible. In the last
few years, there has been an increased interest
in the inherent, natural attributes of timber
frame homes as people want to create their own
sustainable environment.

Homes from the inside out On the inside, post
and beam homes Portland get high marks for what
is referred to in the green building industry as
"indoor environmental quality." Your timber frame
contractor in Portland will use brand-name
suppliers who meet the high standards of
regulatory bodies and educated consumers. Since a
large percentage of each home is framed around
magnificent views, windows play an important role
in the indoor environmental quality of each home.
Not only do they let natural light into the
living space, approved windows can contribute to
green building certification due to their
efficiency and ability to improve air quality.

Many hybrid timber frame homes are designed to
also include unseen, but important, features to
increase sustainability. Radiant barrier
sheathing, improved insulation and duct sealing
are just a few components. Other visible
environmental features that can be part of a
cedar home are low-VOC paints and stains, solar
panels, radiant heat flooring, hot-water-on-demand
, geothermal systems, and metal roofs. The
benefits of a timber frame homes, however, do not
end with its sustainable design, development and
functionality. The warmth and aesthetic appeal of
premium wood species, combined with each home's
distinctive design elements, contribute to the
growing, global demand for our unique products
and services.
