Timber Frame Home Case Studies

Contemporary Farm House

Project Intent: We quickly found out the clients for this project preferred a contemporary style, but they also had a desire to make sure their home blended with the surrounding agrarian community. It was an interesting challenge to combine the styles, one we solved by creating a front view to look like a farmhouse, while the back view reflects the couple’s contemporary style.

We design our homes to make room for life changes, so they are able to grow and age with their inhabitants. While this home features a bedroom and bath on the upper level, there is another bath and large office on the lower level, which can be easily adapted to a master bedroom in the future. This design affords the clients the option of moving downstairs where their daily life could be on a single level, centered around the kitchen, with the upper level serving as a guest suite.
