Our first lakefront timber frame home we are featuring is in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont! This beautiful custom home features a hybrid timber frame design. Our clients chose to timber frame the center section only, which includes the foyer, dining room and great room which looks out to the lake. They built the wings of the home using our conventional panelized wall system. One wing is the master suite and the other wing on the first floor is the kitchen, pantry, laundry room, and mudroom. Building a hybrid timber frame home has become popular. It allows the homeowner to have a touch of wood in the main areas while creating savings on other areas of the home by using conventional construction. Want to see more photos?

New Hampshire General Contractor Hayward & Company built this beautiful Lake. We supplied the Hayward’s with a structural package that included a center section timber frame with a Structural Insulated Panel (SIPS) roof and our 2x panelized walls and pre-cut engineered lumber roof system. The beauty of our prefabricated products is faster framing on site, allowing the home to only be exposed to the weather elements for a short period. Along with quicker framing time, our structural components come with minimal waste, drastically reducing the construction waste on site. 

The hybrid timber frame home design features a center core timber frame that is seen upon entering the home and leads to a timber frame great room. The timber frame great room flows into the dining room and kitchen to the left. To tie into the timber frame, the homeowners extended the pine tongue and groove decking throughout the home. The tongue-and-groove ceiling is a common feature in many lakeside homes, sometimes even seen on walls if someone is looking for super rustic. See more photos of this amazing home on our website!

Nothing says lakeside living than a traditional Adirondack style timber frame home. This classic beauty was designed and built to feature traditional Adirondack architectural details to blend in with the other “camps” on the lake. The client kept a small portion of their existing home to connect to the new home. The new timber frame house was designed at driveway-level and is one story: one enters a foyer, off of which are the master suite to the left and a guest suite to the right. A sleeping porch connects the two suites in the back, and shelters the lower level from the summer sun. Directly across from the front door a stairwell goes down into the open-plan dining, kitchen, and living room. The octagon section of the home connects to the previous house that the client’s kept for their bedroom wing. Visit our jobsite gallery to see more photos of this beautiful home!
