Some of these log house designs are still standing today and are still in use. You will find examples of timber framing builds in Europe that dates back to the 13th and 14th century. Timber frame log houses are known for their longevity. Timber framing became less popular as there was a need to mass produce buildings. In the late 60s and early 70s, there was a revival of timber framing methods, as homeowners began to desire new ways of building and craftsmen responded by reviving the old and traditional ways. Now timber framing is more popular than ever, and over the years has grown more and more. The benefits of timber framing are many to include aesthetics with exposed timbers and lots of natural wood and light that make timber frames one of the most desired building options because of the strength, clean lines, and beauty of the builds. Timber framing is also versatile as they lend themselves to open floor plans with many design options.
