Merrymeeting Lake, NH – Private Timber Frame Residence

2011 NH Parade of Homes People’s Choice Award Winner!!

This beautiful custom Douglas Fir timber frame home is located on the shores of Merrymeeting Lake. The property has been in the family of its owners for many years and consisted of two small camps, one of which we razed to make room for the new home. This home was designed for the family with four bedrooms, four baths, great room, family room, and screen porch. The exterior of the home consists of cedar shingles and pine novelty siding which was stained to complement the Andersen A-Series windows and doors.  Rounding out the exterior is a massive lakeside deck, master bedroom balcony and a well appointed screen porch for those summer nights.  The interior of the home boasts many custom features from quarter-sawn oak cabinetry, to custom tile, to pecan hardwood flooring and custom mill work.  The home achieved a 5+ Star Energy Star rating due to the Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) foundation and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) on the walls/roof over the timber frame. This home will have outstanding energy efficiency performance for years to come.  This house is truly a testament to wonderful teamwork between us, the homeowner, the architect and all our subcontractors.
