After we built a garage and post & beam barn for this customer, he found that his modern-looking home just wasn’t up to par when compared to the beautiful barn look established by the other two buildings. So we were called back onsite to give the home a face lift, including a huge timber framed portico and new functional dormer over the garage.
Going from a modern all-white house to a barn look didn’t happen overnight. Like with all our projects, we started with a design and refined it with the customer to perfection. We incorporated many barn elements into the home design. We cut the timbers in the shop to the exact specifications in the design, with special attention paid to authentic mortise & tenon joinery. As construction progressed, the modern home gave way to a beautiful, classic, and timeless barn look that perfectly compliments the new garage and post & beam barn.
The huge timber framed portico is the focal point of the timber frame home redesign, with extra large timbers and a towering roof line that commands attention. Curved beams and arched braces give a sweeping, flowing look to the stately timber frame design. Matching barn board siding and stone work completes the look.
The customer is already planning on building another barn.
