Building in North Carolina

TIMBERPEG Regional Manager
North Carolina is a land rich in history, sprawling cities, charming towns, and secluded natural marvels. It’s no wonder that so many people are interested in building a timber frame house here. Home to the Research Triangle anchored by Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, as well as many other bustling metros, there are abundant employment opportunities. Bordered by miles of wild coastline to the east and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west, there is also no shortage of grand vistas to be seen and adventures to be had in the Tar Heel State.
At Timberpeg, we can help make your dream of living in a traditional post and beam home in North Carolina a reality. Work with a custom home builder or architect from our network, or partner with our regional manager to find your perfect solution. Choosing from our many timber frame home floorplans, you can build your dream beach house on the Outer Banks, a rustic mountain home in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains, a lake home overlooking Lake Norman, or a sprawling country estate with easy access to major cities. So many possibilities await!
SMALL TOWN VIBE
Nestled in the foothills of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville may have a small-town feel, but there are world-class amenities at your doorstep. Not only are their plenty of options to enjoy the outdoors, but this city has become known for its artistic communities and music scene. Build your timber frame home in or near this premier vacation destination known for craft beer, hiking, camping, and the historic Blue Ridge Parkway.
Just a short drive from Charlotte, Lake Norman will make you feel a world away. Build your lakefront post and beam home here and awake every day to stunning vistas and endless opportunities for fun and exploration. A stroll down Main Street to visit charming boutique shops. Adrenaline-pumping water sports. Fine dining. Family–friendly events. It’s all within reach.
A SECLUDED PARADISE
THE OUTER BANKS
Located off the mainland, the Outer Banks chain of barrier islands offer more than 100 miles of wild, open shoreline to explore. If sitting on the beach isn’t enough for you, take a trip to Kitty Hawk and bike the Wright Brothers’ trail or go sailing around Hatteras Island or Ocracoke, where you can watch wild horses and learn about the legendary pirate Blackbeard’s demise. Work with a custom home builder to create your dream timber frame house in one of the charming seaside villages and enjoy a respite from crowded cities without ever being too far from shops, restaurants, and activities.
