Timbers

Timbers are the largest dimension solid sawn lumber produced by sawmills, measuring 4x6-inches and larger (nominal) thickness and width. For example, 4x6, 4x8, 6x6, 6x8 and larger. Timber construction is typical in structural applications where strength is important, but it is also common in architectural applications where the beauty of wood is meant to be front and center in the design. Timber framing and exposed beam architecture may be found in barns, custom homes, equestrian centers, lodges, hotels, spas, wineries, and other high-end structures.
