Timber Frame Home Case Studies

The Vermont Street Project

Project Intent: Aptly named after its SW Portland address, this home showcases the culmination of 25 years of custom timberwork and environmentally sensitive design and construction. The home serves as a living example of our company's work and shelter for the owner's family. The home also represents a few firsts as we believe it to be the first timber frame home in Oregon seeking LEED Platinum status and the first home we know of where every possible wall surface was finished with a natural plaster material. This home is so unique, it deserved its own website: newenergyworksplatinum.com.

We also have a detailed walkthrough of the project as a PDF here.

The Vermont Street Project is also the winner of Fine Homebuilding's 2011 New Home of the Year Award as well as Green Builder Magazine's Home of the Year, Best Craftsmanship Award - read the article here.
