Insulating a Timber-frame Building

ProblemTimber-frame interior

The design of timber-frame construction does not lend itself to the thermal envelope standards of contemporary housing and buildings codes. Most modern insulation materials are designed for contemporary building design and practices. Modern walls are built with studs that are 16 inches to 2 feet on center. The studs themselves are of much smaller dimensions than the timbers used in a post and beam structure.
