Vermont home features timber frame brackets on the exterior
Here at Davis Timber Frame, we provide our customers with many timber frame options from full timber frame packages to timber frame accents including timber frame porches, timber frame trusses and timber frame wooden brackets for their homes. Most of our packages are full and hybrid timber frame packages, however, we work with many homeowners who want to add a touch of timber framing to their new or existing home.
Below are ways you can add timber framing:
Timber Frame Truss Accents
Last year, we worked with two different clients in a ski area in Vermont who were building conventional homes. Both clients decided to add timber frame truss accents to their great rooms as well as timber frame brackets to the exterior to achieve a mountain home look. Adding timber frame truss accents to a conventional home adds warmth, charm and can give the home a the the timber frame ambiance without having to add timber framing to every room.
Timber Frame Porches
Timber Frame Wood Brackets
Timber frame wooden brackets are typically added underneath the roof overhangs of your home. Whether you are building a timber frame or conventional home, adding wooden brackets will give your home a unique look!

We offer many different style timber frame truss and bent systems here at Davis Timber Frame. We offer two basic types of frames, common purlin frames and common rafter frames. Common purlin frames offer a series of purlins all bearing on the principal rafters of a bent. Common purlin frames are also erected one bent at a time at uniform intervals. Common rafter frame roof rafters span from the eave walls to a ridge beam, principal purlin or the opposing rafter. Common rafter frames are erected in wall sections. Both the common rafter frame and common purlin frame offer a variety of different style bents and trusses to choose from.
One of our most popular style frames is the common rafter principal purlin frame. One reason why the principal purlin frame is so popular here at Davis Timber Frame is because all of our Classic Barn Home floor plans feature a common rafter principal purlin system. Principal purlin frames are simple and beautiful and are often the perfect choice for those that desire a simple timber frame design.
A couple other popular style frame choices are Queen Post and King Post truss and bent frames. Many of our clients use a combination of bent and truss frames for their timber frame home but for the main areas of the home (great room, dining room and kitchen), timber frame truss frames are used to keep the space open and airy.
