Timber Framed Porch

This traditional looking porch is timber framed to be handsome to look at and easy to maintain. The decorative panels are routed into the timbers to brace the structure, without any fasteners or glue to fail. The deck is separate from the porch framing so that it can be replaced easily as we know the deck will fail before the frame. The roof overhangs the stairs so that the stairs and persons sitting on them are protected from the weather. The ceiling is open, leaving the framing visible.
