Now this is a dream home
Where luxury living meets old-world tradition
High, vaulted cathedral ceilings. Soaring spaces supported by natural wood beams. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows opening up to endless lake views. Hearth-warmed sofas. This isn’t a ski chalet. This is your timber frame house.
Timber frame homes are anything but common. Walking through one is like being surrounded by history, as the interior framework—featuring the iconic craftsmanship of exposed beams, supported by mortise and tenon joints—harkens back to a bygone era. These beautiful heavy timbers will be seen and admired by your family for generations.
And by choosing a timber frame house or roof system, you’re opening up a whole new world of customized design. And we owe it all to old-world technology.
Drawing on longstanding European building tradition, timber frame structures have remarkable beauty and well as exterior strength, meaning fewer interior load-bearing walls are required for additional support. This creates endless possibilities for your imagination.
Create the perfect floor plan
- Enjoy large, open rooms with no need for interior walls
- Bask in natural lighting since strong frames allow for more windows without compromising support
- Combine the convenience of drywall interiors with the aesthetic of timber frame accents
Given the design options available to you, it’s easy to envision hosting social gatherings in your luxuriously appointed living room. Your guests will marvel just as much at the exquisite look of the exposed wood beams as they will the floor-to-ceiling views of your lakefront property.
Or, you could just as easily keep this sumptuous setting to yourself by curling up on a comfy sofa and reading a bestseller in front of the warm glow of a fireplace.
