is the timber frame structural or? - I'm building a home now with hammer bents and timber framing over the exterior deck areas with girls, purlins and stk structural t&g d.fir roof deck. The rest of the home is conventional framing but I can carry a similar theme through the 12/12 pitched interior. I would have to do it architecturally only at this point though. I really like this look and it does look like the real thing.

This is non-structural. Due to insulation and wiring, it is generally cheaper and easier to fake in the ceiling under the structural roof.

Thanks. I'm considering the same process thinking about ways to make it appear structural mimicking the hammer-bents. Scaffold work 16' high makes it a challenge. I really like the panelling you incorporated as well. Well done!
