What’s In My Package? Handcrafted Timber Frame

 Handcrafted Timber Frame

Our Timbers are Heavy Full Sawn Timber custom sawn at our facility in Malakwa, British Columbia

Same species available as our tradition Post & Beams

Timber Grades

No.1 Grade Box Heart Mix

No.1 Grade FOHC (Free of Heart Centre)

 

Box Heart

Timber sawn from the whole tree with the heart at the center. Typically, large dimension, and value-oriented timbers are box-heart. Checking can occur that may run to the length of the timber.

Free-of-Heart

The timber is sawn to exclude the heart of the tree, creating a more stable timber, especially in small to mid dimensions. Tends to check much less than box-heart.
