Timber Frame Home Case Studies

Along the Lakeshore

This lakeside home is the second timber frame we've raised for a couple on Canandaigua Lake. It is crafted of reclaimed Douglas fir timbers sourced by Pioneer Millworks from the deconstructed 1930’s United Embroidery factory in New Jersey. The timbers were smooth finished and treated with oil to bring out the natural patina for a rustic, yet refined look. We recreated many of the details from the homeowners' first home, including all interior doors, crafted from reclaimed wine vat stock. Other details include reclaimed oak flooring (also from Pioneer Millworks), a live edge island top, mantle/fireplace surround, custom built-ins for the great room and office, hand-crafted entry door, and bunk beds by NEWwoodworks

"Everyone we worked with at New Energy Works was warm and professional. We would not have the special home we have today without the guidance and workmanship of the wonderful NEW teams." - Sal and Jackie

"With its airy, day-lit spaces, artistic arching beams and beautiful use of reclaimed wood, this Canandaigua Lake timber frame is the epitome of rustic elegance." - Rochester Magazine
