At Timberpeg, we realize that a full timber framed home is not for everyone. Some homebuyers like the feel of a timber framed structure, but think having every room with timber framing is too much. Usually, these buyers like the looks of timber framing in public rooms but prefer conventional construction in bedrooms.

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.
This recent cold snap has sent quite the chill across the nation, with at least one location in each state reporting below freezing temperatures this past Tuesday night. Although frigid temperatures may send many of us pining for more tropical climates, others can’t wait to hit the slopes.
October saw four great Timberpeg open homes, but November is just around the corner and has its fair share of open homes as well. While October’s open homes showcased Timberpeg homes in New England, the Midwest and the Southeast, this coming weekend's homes are in the Mid-Atlantic.
In November, we featured two floor plans, the Cobb Meadow and the Lassen. The Cobb Meadow featured a functional three-bedroom plan, but at 2,100 square feet may not offer the space some small families are looking for. Meanwhile, the Lassen is a gorgeous timber frame home, but its 2,890 square feet and four plus bedrooms may be a bit too much for a small family.
Last week, we highlighted the cozy Cobb Meadow floor plan. With its three bedrooms in 2,100 square feet, it is great for a small family. For those in need of a bit more space and another bedroom, the Lassen floor plan may be just the ticket. And with the holiday entertaining season upon us, a little more room can be a great thing.
Post and beam and timber frame homes are true works of art. And just like art, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, when a family purchased a previously custom built Timberpeg home in New Jersey, they wanted to do a complete renovation to have their new home reflect their styles rather than that of the home's previous owner. The result of the renovation is a feast for the eyes!
This week, we'll be featuring a New Jersey home's fabulous pool house designed by the talented timber framers at Timberpeg. Specializing in custom designs, Timberpeg was able to create a pool house that doesn't just look great next to the pool, but suits the style of the home already existing on the property.
We hope you all had a fabulous time celebrating America yesterday! What makes all of the post and beam and timber frame homes we feature here even more terrific, is the fact that they are all manufactured in the USA! This week we'll be featuring a gem of a home in east-central Vermont. It's a timber frame carriage house nestled in the trees on beautifully sloped land.
With just under 2,200 sf of living space, this custom post and beam home in southwest New Hampshire was built to be a primary home for its owners. Set on a sloped lot, the house sits high on the property and looks down over the lush New England landscape. You'll notice on the first floor plan (below), that there are two decks (one is a screened porch just off the dining room) you can sit on to take in the views.
