What is A Hybrid Log & Timber Homes A hybrid home is an extremely flexible concept or platform to build upon with your own ideas and tastes. You can combine round logs with square timbers, stone, stucco, cedar, or cement shakes with siding accents. Think of a Hybrid as a blank canvas. Both the interior and exterior of the home can be designed to your taste. This opens nearly endless possibilities in regards to your home’s appearance. If you don’t consider yourself the creative type, we have an expert staff to help you along the way.
A hybrid home takes the best of both worlds for the outside. It takes the energy efficient wall construction and insulation from traditionally framed homes and adds the rustic charm from a log or timber home. Walls are built using a 2×6 or 2×8 stud and the wall space is filled with an R-21, R-23 OR R-30 insulation. The exterior can be finished with logs, cedar, stone or other timber products. Rustic accents such as log or timber posts, columns, trusses, porches or other details can be added to the outside.
The inside of a hybrid home is just as customizable as the outside. The inside walls can be finished with drywall, tongue & groove, stone, logs and/ or timbers. Remember, each room of your home can have a different finish. If you do not want to go full out rustic interior finish, rustic accents and details are available. Stairs, railings, beams, trusses, trim posts and do0rs can be given a rustic touch.
Nearly anything is possible with a hybrid log or timber home.
