Compared to a traditional full scribe or post and beam, a timber frame package is typically the least expensive of the three builds because a lesser volume of wood is usually used. Again cost depends on the complexity, size, design and type of timber used.
The base timber package cost will range between $70 per square foot to $95 per square foot. The price includes engineered hardware, gaskets and labour for two Artisan team members.
If a full timber frame exceeds your budget, there is also always the option of adding some timber highlights to your conventional home to still achieve the feel and beauty of timbers.
Depending on the type of timber you decide to use for a post and beam and timber frame, it can affect the cost of your build. For a complete price breakdown, check out our article “How Much Does a Log Home Cost. ”
