Look for the Forestry Forum. They have a section just for timber framing.

Heating and cooling of timberframes are similar to conventional frame homes, It depends upon the insulation and siding,roofing, ect. that is used. There is a little more thermal mass in a timberframe but not enough to be significant in heat storage. Insulation is the key ingrediant. My 2 cents worth.

Nope but wish I did. Lots of info out there but the old art is dying if more young doesn't learn it. Some things computers can't teach.
