A Longhouse or Long House is a type of long, proportionately narrow, single room building built by peoples in various parts or the world including Asia, Europe, and North America. Many were built from timber and often represent the earliest form of structure in many cultures.
We offer our unique Long House design in Timber Frame Construction (TFC). Timber framing or "post-and-beam" construction are methods of building with heavy timbers (posts and beams) rather than dimensional lumber such as 2×4s. Traditional timber framing is the method of creating structures using heavy squared-off and carefully fitted and joined timbers with joints secured by large wooden pegs (larger versions of the mortise and tenon joints in furniture). It is commonplace in wooden buildings from the 19th century and earlier.
TFC is versatile and offers speed of construction and can be weather proofed within days. It requires little in the way of wet trades and allows easy routing of mechanical and electrical items after timber frame completion. It is highly insulated, has low heating costs, good acoustic performance and can be crafted to within fine tolerances. It combines traditional joiner based timber frame construction and state of the art manufacturing technology.
