Check out the Vermonter, a timber frame home built for all seasons! Years ago, we custom designed a hybrid timber frame home for a couple in Addison County, Vermont. Shortly after, we turned their custom plan into a model and it became known as the Vermonter timber frame floor plan.
Several years after the original Vermonter was built, we met a new set of clients at a Log & Timber Frame Home Show. They stopped by to check out the show and originally had an interest in a log home. They met with Davis Frame Company and discovered timber frame construction and were convinced this was the perfect type of construction that would give them a wood look without being too rustic. Our client’s decided to use our Vermonter model to build their new beautiful timber frame home in Vermont. They were fortunate to also tour the original Vermonter, which helped them decide the plan was perfect for them.
Our design team worked with the homeowners to customize the floor plan to meet their needs. We also kept the hybrid timber frame design, with the timber frame featured only in the center section of the home as well as in the master bedroom. Hybrid timber frame homes have become extremely popular and is a great way to add a touch of a timber frame in areas of the home you would like to have it featured while planning the remainder to feature conventional construction.
The first floor features a spacious floor plan. Upon entering the hybrid timber frame home home, there is a nice mudroom featuring the laundry room, a half bath and a place for shoes and coats. To the left of the mudroom area is a gorgeous kitchen and dining area. Off of the kitchen and dining area is another space that was originally used as a library, however, our clients turned this space into a formal dining room, perfect for gathering with family during the holidays. All of this space was conventionally framed. Just beyond the kitchen is the gorgeous timber frame great room and timber frame master bedroom wing.

The beautiful timber framing is featured in the expansive great room, featuring beautiful King Post trusses. The timber frame great room is located just beyond the kitchen.
The second floor features a nice loft with a seating area, perfect for enjoying the beauty of the timbers from above. Two guest suites are located on the second floor each with their own bathroom.

Now, for the coolest feature on this property, an inground pool with a timber frame pool house! A few years after building their home, our client’s decided a pool would be a perfect addition to enjoy warm sunny days. At first they were going to locate the pool close to the house, but after considering all options, they decided to build it 300 ft away from the home and add a timber frame pool house, equipped with a nice sitting area, bar and bathroom.
There is also a nice garage attached to this home and features bonus living space above, perfect for weekend guests. The garage bonus space is accessible from the first floor mudroom, keeping it a nice private space for guests.
