Timberpeg: Homes of the Past and Future

The New Year provides a great opportunity for reflection on the past and insight into the future. Rather than solely using the New Year to propose resolutions, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at how people in the past viewed the home of the future. In the 1950s and 1960s, there were all manner of predictions of what the modern home would look like in the seemingly distant 21st century.

A Timber Frame House With A View

Don and Nita Jackson purchased a 160-acre hilltop retreat in Bradford, New Hampshire in 1986. The property came with a charming 1800s farmhouse, which unfortunately lacked any insulation for cold winter nights. The couple had the farmhouse renovated in 1997 by Timberpeg Independent Representative, Old Hampshire Designs, which made for a much more livable retreat.

Barn Homes: The Ecologically Friendly Choice

In decades past, homes were constructed without much concern for their ecological footprint. Insulation was given little thought, and cheap energy was used to heat or cool the house as needed. Now, as energy prices climb and people become more environmentally conscious, more attention is focused on our houses. The homes from Timberpeg have several features that make them a great aesthetic choice as well as a great choice for the environment. Below, we’ll discuss how our homes' construction will save you money in the long run while helping protect the environment.

The Millbrook Barn Home Floor Plan

There is something so beautiful about a barn home that's in perfect proportion.  A home that's not too tall or too wide, not too stark and not too cluttered. The Millbrook barn home floor plan is one of those barn homes that truly has everything in balance.  At only 1,632 square feet, the plan is open and spacious on the interior while perfectly approachable from the exterior.  As a small home plan, this barn home beauty has quickly become a crowd favorite.  We can definitely see why.
