Here are a few things that architects may want to consider when working with timber framing:

  1. Timber sizing: The size of the timbers used in a timber frame can have a big impact on the strength and stability of the structure. It's important to choose the right size timbers for your project based on the load-bearing requirements of the structure.
  2. Timber frame engineering: Timber frame structures require careful engineering to ensure that they are strong and able to withstand the forces they will be subjected to.
  3. Project budgeting: Incorporating timber framing into a project can add to the overall cost, so it's important to budget accordingly. A timber framing company can provide guidance on the costs associated with different timber frame options and help you find ways to stay within your budget.
