Barn Style Timber Frame Homes
Many people that are attracted to timber frame homes have had daydreams of restoring an old timber frame barn house to present-day glory and creating a breathtakingly unique home to spend their days. Then the reality of that dream sets in as one considers the difficulties of owning an old home: septic tanks, inefficient heating, wells, and other problems.
Building a barn style timber frame home offers the best of two worlds: the gorgeous aesthetics of an old country home paired with the modern convenience and efficiency of new (and, many times, green) construction. This style is also perfect for those who love an open floor plan but prefer classic, traditional styles.
