Tamlin Timber Frame Packages- Floor Systems
Tamlin provides a premium grade of lumber for all its floor systems. Solid full length Douglas fir, or spf floor joists, engineered “silent floor joists” (“I” joists), and plywood sub-floors are engineered for each house package. Each floor system comes complete with all the structural wood components and hardware. Tamlin re-engineers conventional floor systems for each timber frame structure using our “hybrid” approach, to keep building simple and cost effective.
We design all the floor systems for the basement/ground level, main floor, and loft or second floors depending upon the style and function of the particular area. For example, timber frame loft areas may use open beam style solid timber construction with Douglas fir floorboards or beams are pocketed into conventionally framed walls.
- Re-engineered conventional floor systems to support the timber frame structure
- Traditional timber frame “open beam” floor system or optional “clear glue” laminated Douglas fir beams with hidden fasteners
- Premium quality solid Douglas fir or spf floor joists, or engineered “I” joists for a silent floor which also allows longer spans without posts
- The use of other engineered materials (LVL, ganglam, glulaminated, web joist trusses) and hidden support components such as pre-cut IBS cross bracing
