Why choose a Timber Frame?


Honest Abe Log Homes offers Timber Frame design, manufacturing and construction. A Timber Frame Home allows for exposed timbers on the interior and the choice conventional siding, brick, stone or logs on the exterior. For those with a desire for the richness of wood components, our Timber Frames have become a popular choice whether they are located in a busy metropolitan setting, a peaceful suburb, overlooking mountains or water or on a rolling country landscape. Honest Abe uses timeless construction methods to create a framework of 8”x 8” Douglas fir vertical posts and horizontal beams. This “superstructure” is left exposed on the interior, while insulated wall panels sheath the exterior. Our Timber Frame System offers old-world country charm with superb flexibility to add color or decorative style to the interior. Our attention to detail can be recognized through the quality of the craftsmanship developed in our 38 years of manufacturing wood homes and buildings.

“Honest Abe’s timber frame system is easier to construct than traditional timber frame structures. Honest Abe timber frames require no cranes or special equipment. No special foundation is needed. No special skills are demanded. The framework is pre-cut and numbered, then packaged and delivered to your site direct from our plant in some areas, with our fork lift equipment in tow. To make construction even easier, technical assistance is readily available along with our free construction manual and your blueprints. In many areas our dry-in and inhouse construction service is offered.” – Josh Watson, Construction Manager, Honest Abe Log Homes, Moss, Tennessee

Timber Frames by Honest Abe Log Homes are the perfect choice if you want a combination of interior natural wood components and a more traditional exterior for your home or business.
