“Trimber” Frame Timber Framing

“Trimber” Frame Timber Framing

Earlier this year BenCo was contracted to fabricate and install a handful of interesting interior timber frame accent elements. Sometimes called “trimber frames” because they are basically interior trim elements, these are truly full timber beams, but they are installed as decorative pieces rather than full structural beams. Not as simple as timber frames built before the rest of the house…

Working for Dorsey Construction in conjunction with Celia Bedilia Designs, we installed several ceiling beams using salvaged timbers, some with custom metal accent brackets. A first for us was the painted arched truss in the main stairwell. More photos to come once the remodel is finished!
