Homestead Timber Frames is currently in the process of our most exciting project yet. This incredible Timber Frame Hangar will rest in beautiful Payette, Idaho. Our owner is a private pilot himself and was tired of the standard metal box that most hangars are. Why not have something beautiful to store your most valuable toys in? Keeping the beams exposed will draw attention to all the fine details that Timber Framing offers. We couldn’t be more proud of our first hangar and we can’t wait to design yours!

Here’s What Our Owner Said…
Over the last few years, metal plane hangars being the norm has changed. Commercial clients have started looking more toward timber frame structures in recent years as a more reliable and stable structure type to replace metal and stone. This includes timber framed airplane hangars. While the rustic beauty of a timber frame airplane hangar is certainly more appealing than the cold, unfeeling aesthetic of metal, those who seek to have timber frame plane hangars built are quickly discovering that these structures offer more benefits than traditional metal hangars.

Top Benefits of Timber Frame Airplane Hangars…
Heavy-duty timber provides greater durability. With a well-designed and expertly constructed timber frame airplane hangar, you’ll get a durable structure that can easily stand up to the most harsh elements without bending, buckling, or breaking, and will last for years to come. Timber Frame Plane Hangars require little maintenance. Maintaining a timber frame airplane hangar is nowhere near as intensive, costly or harmful as maintaining a metal airplane hangar. Timber Frame Plane Hangars reduce our carbon footprint. Perhaps the biggest, and most-lasting benefit, of owning a timber frame airplane hangar is knowing that you’re playing a role in helping reduce carbon emissions. Want to learn more?
