Hybrid builds have become very popular in the timber frame industry. Yankee Barn Homes has been ahead of the game because we devised our True Panel ™ system back in the 1990’s. Since that time we have been building in the hybrid, or partial timber frame, tradition.
Partial Timber Frame Flexibility
Partial timber frame or hybrid homes are those that incorporate a substantial amount of post and beam construction juxtaposed with a panelized system. The fact that hybrid homes do such a great job of combining different elements creates a wealth of wow factor. They also raises the bar on your ability to customize and personalize your dream home. The possibilities offered by hybrid home construction are many. People who might not have felt comfortable with any one single flavor of home design can venture into new architectural territory. A hybrid home allows a blend of different looks. This means your personal style can be applied room by room, using timber in some areas and panelized construction in others.
Aesthetic Options Expanded
Aesthetically, a hybrid home with timber frame in part of the house (perhaps certain interior spaces) affords a lighter, more transitional feel. Plus, post and beam construction in a hybrid home frees your design from some of the constraints of stick-built architecture. With a hybrid you can put very large windows into the home. There is nothing sturdier than a post and beam frame. No worrying about whether the window is compromising the wall’s strength or how the timber frame will settle. Timber frames provide a strength not matched in a stick built home.
The Choice is Yours
Yankee Barn Homes builds in full timber frame (post and beam), partial timber frame (hybrid) and fully panelized systems. You decided how much timber you want, and we’ll create a custom design unique to your taste and style.
