Snowy Timber Frame

December 12, 2011 1 comment

Snowy timber frame picture anyhow…and since we don’t really have much snow yet, I thought this was a good choice for today.

This custom timber frame design features a gambrel roof, dormers,  a wonderful porch area was added.

The white pine timbers are hand hewn, can you see the detail? Hand hewn the old fashioned way, with an adze and slick.

Custom cabinetry in white, creates a nice contrast.  Fireplace is stunning, great job to all involved.

Timber Frame Shopping…Done. What’s Next?

November 2, 2011 6 comments

Ok, you’ve picked out your timber framer and soon you’ll have your new timber frame home.  Many more decisions still need to be made, important decisions.

Now, let’s finish up on the inside.  One of my favorite rooms to design & shop for is the kitchen.

Cabinetry, custom designed and hand crafted just like your timber frame (of course). Let’s go, Vermont Custom Cabinetry.

Counter tops?  I’m thinking soapstone, let’s check in with Glenn Bowman and see what he thinks?

Maybe a soapstone sink also…Yes, I like that idea.

Lighting Design?  Yes, another area I like, alot.

How about  Hubbartdon Forge, lighting with some weight, to balance out those timber beams.

Hand-forged wrought iron, made in Vermont, can’t beat that.

This pretty pendant is hanging over my dining room table 🙂 LOVE it.

Ok, more shopping…

FLOORING = Vermont Hardwoods & The Flooring Mill

Country Red Birch is on sale, through the month of November, great to hear!

Eastern White Pine is always a hit.

OK, shopping is done…for now.  Maybe next time we’ll venture over into New Hampshire?

Comments welcome 🙂

Kitchen Cabinet Ideas for your Timber Frame Home.

Wood cabinets?  Is that too much wood? Painted cabinets?  What to do? Well, how about taking a look at both. Full timber frame home in rough sawn hemlock timbers and a custom cherry full overlay cabinet.  Very nice!

Although I love the contrast between the pine timbers, painted custom cabinetry and the wood floor, I wouldn’t haven chosen white for my household.  Brave choice and it looks fabulous!

Now, let’s talk about that fireplace…
