- Roger Wade for OakBridge Timber Framing
This home rests on a hill in a hayfield - there are no trees - just stunning views. The homeowners specifically wanted an abundance of windows to enjoy the scenery from every locaton in the home. The white oak frame is accented by hand-hewn timbers, with straight braces - a simplicity found throughout the home, which also includes radiant heating, geothermal systems, and acid-stained concrete floors.
Aside from the loft, the home is fully handicap accessible, with wide doorways and pocket doors.
There is no artwork on the walls - the view outside through the plentiful windows, and the stunning timber frame work overhead serves as the home's artwork.
2116 square feet, 1 bedroom – 2 baths (loft and office can both be used for extra sleeping areas).
