Traditionally Built Authentic Timber Barn

FRAME TYPE: Traditional Timber Frame
FRAME STYLE: Traditional + Barn
TIMBER SPECIES: Mixed Australian Hardwoods
COMPLETED: 2020
Our clients for this project were looking for a large, authentic, aisled timber barn for their estate in Tuckombil, west of Ballina in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. After careful planning and design, we got to work meticulously handcrafting each and every joint and detail for this massive timber frame.
This project began in September 2019 and was completed in Mid 2020 making it one for the TTF history books as one of the largest projects we’ve undertaken. In total around 24 cubic meters of locally sourced, sustainable Australian hardwood was needed to create the huge timber frames necessary to span 24 meter by 13-meter dimensions of the barn.
Curved braces were milled to mirror the natural curves of specially selected timber stock. The 24.5 meter top plate that forms the spine of the barn was handcrafted from 6 individual pieces of timber, masterfully joined using strong traditional joints by our highly skilled craftsmen. (To see how we did it check out the video below)

Designed to include stables for the family horses, workshop space, machinery storage, and the option of hosting events, this barn really can do it all and look stunning while doing so!.

Representing a premium selection of joinery and Australian Hardwoods the barn was finished with beautiful details including timber windows and doors, copper light fixtures and a range of aesthetic elements

The completed project is a structure that will be admired for hundreds of years. Its thoughtful design, use of premium materials, and attention to detail have raised the appeal, value and general aesthetic of this country estate to be one befitting the finest luxury Byron Bay hinterland properties.
