Building a timber frame home is, for many, a long process. They’ve thought about it for years and it’s a realization of that long-held dream. For others, they discover timber frames and decide quickly that they need one…now! As with designing any home, you really need to step back and think it through. You need to think about not only what you like and how much money you’ll spend, but how you’ll live in your new home. Timber frame homes are actually easier to design and build because the don’t require structural interior walls.
We’ve brought some of the questions you need to think about together in a form that you can either print out or fill in online and email directly to us. It’s meant to help bring clarity to your design choices and options. Thinking through the answers you give you the opportunity to think about how you’ll use the space in your new timber frame. These questions won’t define everything in your new home, but they will help you to define the areas that need more (or less) space and will help you to make decisions that will help keep your budget intact.
Go through it quickly answering the questions without lots of thought. Then go back and consider each answer again. Did you change your answers? If so, you might want to think about why and which answer works best. You can design and build a timber frame home that works just for you!
And, if we can help, drop us a note or send us the filled-in form. We’d be pleased to visit with you about your project.
When you build, build boldly.
