Looks great, but not a complete solution.
I’m used to working with Twig, but not so much with WordPress. Documentation is pretty limited and most tutorials are from around 2015. No active community around it. I managed to build a page with it, but ran into several limitations once it got a bit more complex. Then you need to write extra code in functions.php to address these (Woocommerce issues, global ACF fields). It also adds an extra layer of complexity with breaking changes, php compatibility issues. And I got pretty confused on where to address certain pages as templates in the Timber starter theme when normally you have the php files.
My conclusion is to first learn the basics of building your own theme with php and maybe then use twig/timber if you still think you need it to clean up your templates. As with many frameworks you need to understand the underlying technology to use it effectively.
