Hand hewn timbers were joined in a traditional truss style reminiscent of simple barn forms to give volume, substance, and a story to the main living area of this family vacation house on the Cape. Expressive pops of color and layers of textures against the crisp backdrop create a cohesive environment with a fresh and coastal aesthetic. A favorite spot on the property is the outdoor poolside timber frame cabana which provides shelter for a lounge, dining area, and fireplace.
"I remember stopping by after the raising to find the frame standing alone with nothing around it. It was so cool to see that the timbers weren't just aesthetic, but structural; my dream of a barn-inspired home was really taking form. Also, the finish on the timbers is so great—so natural and perfect. Your team did a tremendous job.” –Jennifer, Homeowner and Interior Designer
