Our most popular timber frame floor plan is without a doubt, our Classic Homestead 1. Inspired by the simplicity of homes built by early homesteaders, the design features a simple roofline, informal composition, modest interior space, and charming second-floor rooms. It’s a classic architecture and the efficient use of square footage has made it wildly popular.

With just 1,800 square feet of living space, this Classic Homestead timber frame home lives larger with its open concept first floor. This cute timber frame home features an entry covered porch leading into a small mudroom area. Beyond the entry is a hallway that leads straight ahead to a spacious master suite. To the right is an open concept kitchen, dining room, and living room. The dining room and great room are vaulted showcasing the beautiful exposed wooden beams that timber frame offers. 

The second floor features two generous sized bedrooms with a shared bathroom. A small loft space overlooks the main floor and captures the beauty of the vaulted timber frame in the great room and dining room. 

This is our original Classic Homestead timber frame we worked on in Southern Vermont. The homeowners built it to use as their vacation home then would eventually retire to. They added two features to our standard model, a cupola, and a screened-in porch off the back of the house. That is great about our standard models, they give you a good template to start with and can easily add a few custom details to make it unique to your wants and needs.

This custom Classic Homestead timber frame was built in the North Fork area of Long Island in New York. Our client chose a couple of modifications, mainly reworked the floor plan and added a sun porch and a bump out to the main level to accommodate an extra bedroom. The great room picture shown in this collage has become an instant favorite from our website.
