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.
