Why choose a timber frame commercial building or private home?
Serenity Log Homes through its manufacturer Honest Abe Log Homes offers Timber Frame design, manufacturing and construction. A Timber Frame Home allows for exposed timbers on the interior and the choice conventional siding, brick, stone or logs on the exterior. For those with a desire for the richness of wood components, our Timber Frames have become a popular choice whether they are located in a busy metropolitan setting, a peaceful suburb, overlooking mountains or water or on a rolling country landscape.

Honest Abe uses timeless construction methods to create a framework of 8”x 8” Douglas fir vertical posts and horizontal beams. This “superstructure” is left exposed on the interior, while insulated wall panels sheath the exterior. Our Timber Frame System offers old-world country charm with superb flexibility to add color or decorative style to the interior. The attention to detail can be recognized through the quality of the craftsmanship developed in Honest Abe’s 38 years of manufacturing wood homes and commercial buildings.
