A beautiful kitchen in a timber frame home is always a winner in my book. In a conventionally framed home, natural wood cabinetry would be my choice, in almost every situation. But, what about a timber frame home? Wood timbers, probably wood flooring, the cabinetry in another wood choice might be too much. Painted cabinetry wins out for contrast alone.
What do you think? The white cabinets are very pretty and very safe. Would you be more daring?
Count me in on all of this. Hand hewn timbers, gorgeous stone fireplace and hearth, love it. Let’s take a look at the exterior, just for fun!
Thank you for stopping by, comments are welcome!

Competitive Bidding / Bid As Drawn
This can be a tough one, if you have a concern based on design aesthetic or worse…engineering. What’s the best way to approach this?
1. Bid as drawn with so many comments and notes in the proposal that you think you are covered.
2. Bid as an alternate, hope they appreciate your attention to detail and concern.
3. Bid it both ways and hope for the best.
What do you think? In various construction methods, this similar situation must come up. We would like to hear your thoughts!
