When designing a conventional home, the ceiling is not often given much consideration. Perhaps we disregard the ceiling since it is seldom the focus of our attention in a room, but the design of a ceiling can greatly influence how a room feels, and this is especially true in a timber framed home.

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.
While we have spent the last few weeks focusing on the wide range of design and construction offered by Timberpeg, the largest part of our business is providing single family homes that are appreciated and lived in every day. While a large home can be fun to think about, half of all new homes constructed today are less than 2,400 square feet.
At Timberpeg, we are happy to work with our clients to realize their visions, whether their dreams are large or small. Last week’s post was a perfect example of this, where we provided structures spanning in size from a pergola to a winery frame for Owera Vineyards.With homeowners as well, we are more than happy to work with you on projects large or small.
In our last post, we discussed tips for organizing and storing your wine collection at home. While this is helpful advice for the average homeowner, some of our clients have even bigger aspirations. Timberpeg also builds non-residential buildings, and has constructed timber framed buildings ranging from farmstands to churches to schools.
While wine is at least 8,000 years old, its popularity continues to grow. According to the Wine Institute, per capita consumption in the United States has increased by 28 percent over the past decade. If you consider yourself a oenophile, then you should consider designing your home to showcase and store wine.
This time of year, in most of the country, we gain around two and a half minutes of daylight from one day to the next. Coupled with the improving temperatures, outdoor space becomes an increasingly tempting place to spend your time. At Timberpeg, many of our clients elect to have screened porches or other outdoor space built as part of their homes.
Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22, which is this Tuesday. Originally Earth Day was to be celebrated on the spring equinox, but it was moved a month later so that students would not be away on spring break or taking finals on Earth Day.
Technology continually advances, as evidenced by the powerful computers that we carry in our pockets (that we sometimes also use as phones) and the radar and optical systems in our cars that can brake before an accident. With all of this relentless progress, the traditional charm of a timber frame home can be quite refreshing.
While your home may be your castle, the enclosed space of a home can also present challenges to one’s health. Houses today, especially timber frame homes, are tighter than ever, which is a great thing for sustainable living and lowering energy costs.
