What Is a Timber Frame Pavilion?

March 31, 2022

If you’re looking for a way to beautify your outdoor environment, a timber frame pavilion may be just what you’re looking for. It will create a shaded space for dining, entertaining, or simply relaxing, and it brings a warmth and classic look that will complete your outdoor décor.

The Natural Beauty of a Timber Frame Pavilion

What makes a timber frame pavilion so unique? Popular construction methods tend to separate the style and strength of a building. It’s commonplace to build a structure and then cover it with façade materials to “spruce it up.” On the other hand, with a timber frame pavilion,  there isn’t a single piece that is hidden or covered to try and create a certain look.

Timber frame pavilions have remained popular for decades; they never go out of style. The inherent longevity of timber frame pavilions means the resale value remains high for generations.

The Many Uses of a Pavilion

“Versatility” is the perfect word for describing the main benefit of a pavilion. You can use it in so many ways, including:

Outdoor kitchen: you can have your pavilion be just a place to put your grill, or make it more elaborate by adding a full stove, oven, sink, prep area, fridge, wine bar…personalize it depending on what’s important to you.


Entertainment pavilion: it’s a perfect place to gather with family and friends to enjoy music, sample some cold beverages, or roast marshmallows. Lighting and media players can be protected from the elements, and a fire pit or even a full-size outdoor fireplace will make your pavilion the centerpiece of your yard.


Pool house: if you have a pool, a timber frame pavilion can function as a pool house. You can add additional storage, a changing room, or even a closed section on the back end of the pavilion to house the pool’s mechanicals.

A home extension: a timber frame pavilion is a solid way to extend your roofline and extend it over your patio, porch, or basement walkout. You can add screens to enclose your pavilion and keep out bugs and critters.
