Now that outdoor entertaining season is well underway, it’s important that your outdoor space is inviting and comfortable for you and your guests. If your outdoor space is in need of a makeover, then Timberpeg is more than happy to help build structures to add some much needed timber frame charm to your property. Whether or not you home is timber framed, our outdoor timber framed structures can add to the allure and value of any home. Here are a few ideas for outdoor structures to give your home that little extra something.
Although carports may seem more useful in winter months, they also provide a valuable service by keeping vehicles out of intense summer sun and rainstorms. While a garage may be more functional than a carport, the open nature of a carport shows off the timber framing and joinery for all to see. On larger homes, a porte-cochere is a popular variation on this theme, providing a covered area where vehicles can be unloaded or loaded before being stored elsewhere.
Pergolas and Pavilions
If you wish to provide shade to a walkway or sitting area, then a pergola can be just the ticket. Our pergolas are an inexpensive way to add post and beam charm to your home while providing shade outdoors. Pergolas traditionally have woody vines trained upon them, so whether you like the looks of bougainvillea or grow hops for home brewing, this structure will be right at home in your yard. For a roofed structure, a timber framed pavilion can provide shelter from the weather as well as great aesthetics. A pavilion built to accommodate a view is properly called a gazebo, and we have designed a great deal of those as well.
If you have a pool and are looking to build a pool house, Timberpeg can help with this as well. One grand example of a pool house we have built is this magnificent structure in Colts Neck, New Jersey. This grand pool house features a kitchen and dining area for meals out of the summer sun, as well as living and bedroom space so the building can act as a guest cottage. Whether your pool house plans are this large or something quainter, Timberpeg is happy to work with you to design and build a space that suits your summer desires. If you're looking for ways to bring the look and feel of timber framing to your home, then contact the design team at Timberpeg today. They can help design your project no matter how small or how grand. And they can most definitely design a space that will increase the value of your property and your enjoyment of the great outdoors.
