Timber Frame Home Case Studies

A Lakeside Home

Project Intent: The owners of this lakeside retreat enjoyed the original farmhouse here for many years. When it become apparent that their beloved lake house was beyond repair, they made the bittersweet decision to deconstruct it in favor of a new home. The land, the lake, and home's impact here was a driving force in the design. From the road, the home is quaint and charming, from the lake the home opens up to take in the views. From site planning and design thru construction and completion, this home reflects the level of craftsmanship we're known for — quality and an attention to detail that will outlast many, many generations to come. Passive solar design, advanced enclosure and mechanical systems, FSC certified and reclaimed wood flooring and siding, EnvrioShake recycled roofing, and a geothermal heat system are just a few of the energy efficient components in this residence.
