Bring the outdoors in with timber frame construction

Best recognized by their soaring great rooms and large walls of windows that allow the unobstructed views of cottage living; timber frame construction is becoming the choice of many cottage goers today.  The architectural style is so versatile; whither you love a contemporary or more traditional feel; rustic charm or a more polished finish - custom timber frame homes can meet the needs of even the most distinguished.

“The benefit of timber frame construction is its ability to integrate larger, more open spaces,” says Jeff Bowes, president and partner at Canadian Timberframes Limited. “Timber frames let you remove interior structural walls for better sightlines of Muskoka’s stunning vistas while being beautiful in their own right.”
