Custom Built Timber Frame Homes on Your NH Lot | It’s All in the Wood
Timber frame homes are quite energy efficient and have been shown to reduce utility costs. Usually built with no interior load-bearing walls, open floor plans, high vaulted ceilings and the option for large expanses of glass are all readily available concepts. A timber frame can be used for nearly any architectural style. Whether it’s a traditional timber frame home, Adirondack style, modern or contemporary timber frame, cottage or lakeside timber frame, CMG can walk you through the process from conception, to design, to finished construction. As a true design-build construction company, we can help in the design process – or work closely with an architect of your choice.
Timber frames can be built using a number of wood species. In New England, several are favorites. Depending on cost and local availability, hemlock, for strength, spruce, for both appearance and strength and pine, for its long timber length are the most common. West Coast Douglas Fir is absolutely gorgeous, time-tested and extremely strong and stable. It resists checking and cracking and can be FOHC designated meaning that the beams don’t have that bulls eye heartwood in the center. It is predominantly sourced in the Pacific Northwest so travel time has to be accounted for, but the beauty is unsurpassed.
