Painted Cabinetry in a Timber Frame Home

December 29, 2013 Leave a comment

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!

Do you need a tension tie?

This truss design did.  Pretty, don’t you think?

Since this structural truss design naturally wants to push out against the wall framing (we don’t want that), bring in the steel tie rod.

Engineering Department is happy (that’s what we want)!

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.

Custom designs for your unique timber frame home.  Sound like a good idea?  Of course.  You want hand hewn timbers?  We are fine with that.  You want a gambrel roof system and a timber porch?  We can do.  Big time snow load or hurricane alley, our engineer can handle it. Right PJZ?
