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!

Timber Frame Homes…Fireplace or Wood Stove?

April 8, 2010 2 comments

Which do you prefer in your timber frame home?  Fireplace or…

wood stove?

Or Fireplace!

All I know is that one or the other is usually chosen, or both.  The warmth the timbers and the warmth of the flames call out to each other.
