editor’s note

All in the Timing

M y brother Mike refers to them as “life check-ins.” You know, those seren-

dipitous moments when you unknowingly make a decision that winds up

leading to the perfect situation for your precise stage in life. A moment

where your actions lead you to exactly where you’re supposed to be, doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. They don’t happen often, but when you stumble across one of these “life check-ins,” the result can feel nothing short of magical. If you take the leap and complete a custom build, it’s a pretty sure bet you’re going to have that warm, fuzzy, “meant to be” feeling when you’re walking through the front door of your finished home. But the decision to take that journey? It’s not typically an unexpected one. In fact, it’s one that most people contemplate for years before signing on the dotted line. So, when do you know if it’s finally the perfect time to build a timber home? The short answer is that you don’t. But the good news is there is no perfect time. Whether you’re just starting a family or getting close to retirement, there’s a plan out there that’s perfect for you — and your stage of life. That’s why you’ll love “Floor Plans for Life” (Drawing Board, page 28), which has

a pretty simple theme: There’s a home out there for everyone; you just need to know what you’re looking for. We take four life stages — from a young family to empty nest- ers who love to entertain — and share 15 approaches to creating the perfect plan. Once you begin to see your plans come together, it gets fun. You’ll even be able to visualize each room of the house, complete with the finishing elements that will add to your home’s overall personality. Check out Inside Style (page 14) for bright ideas for lighting your interior spaces and “Reclaim Your Kitchen,” (page 52) to check out easy and affordable tips for adding reclaimed materials to your home’s most-used space. For more inspiration in the form of gorgeous timber homes, check out our house tours, starting on page 30.

My hope is that you’ll always be inspired by our beautiful photos and enriched by everything else in- side. So much so that, by the time you place this maga- zine on your bedside table and sink into your pillow one night, a life check-in will begin to emerge. Sure enough, tomorrow may be the day to start your new home.

Enclosure Options

Understand the wall and roof choices for your timber home.

W hile the structural frame may be the star of the show in a timber

home, the enclosure system (trans- lation: your walls and roof) is what protects the house from the exterior elements. Plus, depending on what materials you choose, this system can create a high-performance house boasting environmentally- and bud- get-friendly efficiency. While each timber company has their own preference for enclosure sys- tems, there are a few different options to choose from. A couple overriding considerations need to be taken into ac- count when choosing a system, as well as the details about each option.

STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANELS (SIPS)

Structural insulated panels, or SIPs, have been around since the 1970s and have been growing in popularity ever since. In basic terms, SIPS are made from a ½-inch layer of oriented strand board (OSB), a layer of foam, which varies in thickness depending on your insulation needs, and another layer of ½-inch-thick OSB. The layers are glued together much like a sandwich. Your team of professionals will work to apply the panels’ structural benefits to your home’s timber frame. Using SIPs may possibly reduce the need for knee braces and other timbered elements,

saving you some money. SIP panels are produced off-site and shipped to your property by the manufacturer when you’re ready to have them installed. They come in a variety of sizes, with all the angles, win- dows and door openings cut out and ready for installation. They’re screwed to your roof and wall timbers and also can be used in areas that are not tim- ber framed in place of conventionally framed wall and roof systems.

SIP homes have extremely low lev- els of air infiltration because there are fewer gaps to seal. This airtight char- acteristic makes heating and cooling your timber home more economi- cal in both your monthly energy bill and the smaller size HVAC units your home will require. Homes built with SIPs are able to keep a consistent tem- perature and have fewer drafts and less noise infiltration than standard construction buildings. When prop- erly installed, they maintain a higher whole-wall R-value than stud walls of similar proportions.

CONVENTIONAL FRAMING

Conventional framing mimics the sys- tem used in standard construction (the way that most of the homes in the United States are built) and consists of 2-by-4-inch and 2-by-6-inch pieces of lumber for the wall framing and 2-by-8- inch, 2-by-10-inch, 2-by-12-inch or pre- made roof trusses to create the roof. This all gets sheathed in a plywood or OSB layer that ties everything together structurally. To use conventional framing in a timber home, the walls are constructed and stood up and installed around the timber frame. Some people use the infill system, putting the conventional wall inside the timber frame. This is not recommended for exterior walls. As the timbers dry and move through

THE STRAW-BALE
SOLUTION
ACCORDING TO THE “THREE LITTLE
PIGS” fairy tale, straw makes a poor
option for a sturdy house. A straw-bale
house, though, is nearly impossible to
destroy. Straw-bale homes are not only
pretty strong, they’re also incredibly
energy efficient. (Most straw-bale walls
are R-30, compared to the R-17 of a
conventionally framed home.)
In this type of construction, the
bales are typically 16 inches high, 18
inches wide and 36 to 40 inches long.
The straw is often the waste product
of the cereal grain industry. Despite its
natural construction, straw-bale houses
are not fire hazards. In fact, clay plaster-
covered straw-bale walls can withstand
heat of up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit
for more than one hour. Fire needs fuel
and oxygen; the straw is packed so
tightly that it chars on the outside but
never combusts. Also, when con-
structed properly, straw-bale houses
shouldn’t experience water damage or
infiltration when the bales are covered
properly with the clay or cement plaster.

the seasons, you will certainly get air infiltration through the gaps that are created between the walls and timbers. This will increase your energy costs as well as potentially giving you moisture problems in the future. Electrical wires and insulation work can be completed as usual and you will have a choice of standard insulation types that you can put in the walls. To match the tightness and to get the in- sulation value of a SIP, you will need to use a spray-in polyurethane-based foam for your walls and your roof. Q

L IGHTING

IS

ONE

OF

THE

EASIEST WAYS to transform a

home, one room at a time.

In fact, proper lighting can highlight a room’s assets and help disguise its shortcomings, increase function and set a mood. To make the most of the lighting in your home, just follow a few basic rules:

FOCUS ON FUNCTION

Before lighting a room, consider how you’ll use the space. Will the room get most of its use during the daytime hours or in the evening? What activi- ties will take place there, and in what parts of the room? For example, if you plan on using the space as a reading area, you’ll want to provide lamps beside each reading

spot. If the room is going to be a space for watching TV, you’ll want overall il- lumination that can be adjusted to dif- ferent settings, with light sources that won’t reflect on the screen. If the room will be used for specific tasks or hobbies; moving from place to place; or by older family and friends, you’ll want lighting that’s bright and uniform. If the space is used mostly

THE THREE PRINCIPLE TYPES OF LIGHTING

1. AMBIENT LIGHT is lighting that

provides overall illumination for a room. Ambient light can come from ceiling fixtures, recessed cans, torchieres or sconces. The light should illuminate the space fairly evenly and be bright enough for cleaning and other daily tasks. To determine the amount of ambient

light you’ll need, a good rule of thumb is to multiply the room’s dimensions to get

a total square footage, then multiply that

number by 1.5. That will give you the total

number of watts needed. For example, a 10-by-12-foot room totals 120 square feet. 120 x 1.5 = 180, so you’ll need 180 watts of ambient light.

2. TASK LIGHTING illuminates ar-

eas for activities such as reading or cook-

ing. It most often comes from a lamp or

hanging fixture. Task lighting should cast

a pool of light that’s at least double the

room’s ambient light, and should usually be placed in front of the person perform-

ing the task to prevent his or her body from casting a shadow over the work

surface. So, for cooking, for instance, the light source should be located above and in front of the person A three-way bulb that tops out at

150 watts is ideal. If that’s not possible, look for a fixture that will accommodate

a 100-watt bulb or two 60-watt bulbs.

The bottom of the shade should be at

eye level to prevent glare.

3. ACCENT LIGHTING highlights

specific features in a room, such as an architectural element or a work of art. (In

a timber home, accent lights are a great way to showcase the structural frame

and beams.) It’s usually produced by track lights, a directional recessed can or a spotlight. Highlight a painting by placing a wall- mounted “art” light above it, or spotlight

a decorative mantel with a track light

or directional can light. Showcase the texture of a masonry wall by installing recessed wall washers above it, or place an uplight behind a plant to accentuate its form or cast pleasing shadows.

for relaxation, take the illumination down to increase ambiance.

CONSIDER DECOR

Next, consider the room’s style. If the decor is contemporary or modern, think about us- ing fewer lamps and more built-in lighting, such as overhead cans, track lighting or sleek sconces. If the style is more traditional, pen- dant lights and table lamps can provide illu- mination and enhance the look you’re trying to achieve.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Hang chandeliers about 30 inches above din- ing tables for optimum visual comfort. Install wall sconces 5½ feet above the finished floor or 15–18 inches above a mantel. Wall-mounted lights flanking a bed should be placed 21 inches above the top of the mattress or 42 inches above the finished floor.

4 Questions to Ask for the Best Room Lighting

4 Questions to Ask for the Best Room Lighting Lighting placement, fixtures and func- tion are

Lighting placement, fixtures and func- tion are the three main considerations to think about when giving your living space a light makeover. So if you’re wondering if it’s time for an update, ask yourself these questions.

1

Am I lighting unexpected places?

As you evaluate the status of your home’s lighting, keep in mind that light- ing also helps to define your style, set the mood and perform practical tasks.

Think of adding light in unexpected places, such as a chandelier in the master bedroom (as shown above). And consider using light in unconventional ways — such as using hang- ing pendant lights as reading lamps.

2

Do my lights dim? Good lighting should multitask and set the mood. A

dimmer is an inexpensive and essential tool that puts you in control of the qual- ity and quantity of light. You can install

a dimming system either as a whole-house lighting control or by adding a wall box dim- mer in each room.

The American Lighting Association (ALA) states that a dimmer switch saves $30 a year in utility costs. Before installing a dimmer, make sure you have dimmer bulbs.

3

Do my fixtures reflect current

styles? One of the quickest ways to update the look of a living space is to swap decorative lighting fixtures for more up-to-date styles. While an old

ceiling fan with a light fixture might look a bit dated, you could replace the fixture with an

eye-catching chandelier. Also, don’t be afraid to mix and match lighting styles. They don’t have to be from the same lighting family or design, and they can be transitional, which means they blend well with different aesthetics.

4

Is my lighting focused? Lighting

design is all about the strategic place- ment of light and matching the perfect light source to its intended function. Indirect lighting pulls focus, adds tex-

ture and layers the sight line. Pick focal points that you want to highlight, then direct a light source toward them. Q

5 Ways to Tighten Your Timber Frame Budget

1. Use local species. For example, if you

live on the east coast, white pine and oak will typically be cheaper than other non-local species. Shipping timbers across the country is an added expense that you don’t necessar- ily need to add to your bottom line.

2. Mix up your roof system.

Consider enclosing the roof over the timbered areas of your home with SIPs, but using a conventional system over the other areas of the house. By doing this, you can take advantage of the ease of using the SIPs and the speed and insulation values they provide while also enjoying the cost

savings that come with a conventional roof system.

3. Keep your frame simple. The

more complex your frame is, the more it’s going to cost. And the more joints and board footage of wood in the frame, the more complex things get. Note:

Keeping the frame simple can be chal- lenging depending on your plan, but this is a good tip to keep in mind when making decisions with your designer.

4. Find the best prices. Both suppli-

ers’ and contractors’ prices will vary so getting three estimates for everything is a smart strategy. (If you only get two, you won’t have the third one to verify if someone is too high or too low.) Make sure you create a thorough request document to send to each supplier to make sure you get a true apples-to-apples comparison.

5. Listen to the pros. Ask your

professional team how to save money as they will often know ways to cut back on the cost of their services or how you can tweak your plan to make it work within your budget.

What is a glulam beam?

Energy Works Timberframers in Farmington, New York. “We’re talking about extreme spans of space that kind of max out the capability of timbers. You can get glulams in really long lengths since it’s a manufactured product, whereas traditional timbers are maxed out by the size of the tree.” Another reason you might opt to incor- porate glulam beams is if you’re looking to create some kind of structural curve or unique formation in your house. “You can lay them up in curves or double curves, and you can create some interesting geometry with glulams,” says Fraser. “This is why you often see them in churches and really contemporary, sleek structures.” To make a glulam look like one natural

GLUED LAMINATED TIMBERS (OR GLULAMS) are created from individual layers of wood that are attached through finger joint- ing before being glued together. The result:

One super-strong, oversized beam that’s designed and used to achieve extreme spans of space or bear very heavy loads. “If there’s a situation that would require stability in cross sections longer than you’d typically be able to get with a standard timber, that’s when we’d bring up the possibility of using glulams,” says Eric Fraser, general manager of the timber frame division at New

a solid timber is sliced and pieced back

together perfectly so it still looks like a real beam. Also, because each individual layer is kiln-dried, you can create an extra long beam that’s really dry from the start and incredibly stable and strong. Glulams are often used in commercial structures, but they do have their place in residential construction, says Fraser. “We’ve built entire houses with them, but they also can be used in specific applications to achieve

a desired look in your timber home.”

The Weekend Retreaters

Seniors Who Want Private Spaces

The Empty Nesters Who Entertain

Floor Plans for Life

Does your floor plan match your lifestyle? We take four life stages — from a young family to empty nesters who love to entertain — and share 15 approaches to creating the perfect plan.

A sk any home designer or architect about designing a custom home, and they’ll

all tell you that your lifestyle (both now and in the future) is one of the most important considerations for your final plan. In fact, when you sit down to work with your design professional, one of

the first things they’ll probably do is ask you to explain the way you live — and how you want to live in your future home. To assess your needs, conduct a self-evaluation of your current lifestyle. “Decide what your priorities are so that you know what you’re looking for

in your home,” says Shirlee Gouwens,

a home owner in Munster, Indiana,

who’s planning a home with PineRidge Timberframe in London, Ontario. “However, try to give your architect a

free hand; bow to his expertise because

it may open up some new possibilities

you haven’t considered.”

Scenario 1

The Weekend Retreaters

Since weekend getaways often overlook lakes, mountains or woodland, capturing the view is an important design consid- eration. To do this, a key feature in your plan might be a window wall in a great room facing the primary view. Timber homes work particularly well with these, often with a fireplace to provide an alter- nate focus in the evening. Many weekend retreats are smaller than primary residences, but their open design ensures a spacious feeling. Thanks to the timber frame, you won’t have to take up precious floor space with doors and other dividers. While acousti- cal privacy can be an issue, you can carve out separate, more private spaces in bedroom areas. Be flexible — a first- floor room devoted to a small study or library can someday be converted to an office or a master bedroom. It also can serve as a spare guest room when host- ing extras. In larger weekend homes, junior master suites are popular, as are en- tertainment areas boasting pool tables, large-screen TVs and other diversions. Many home owners also are adding sec- ondary family space for visiting children, creating a separate space for kids to hang out. Note: If you’re thinking about eventually moving into your weekend getaway, also make sure to include long-time accessibility elements, such as wider doorways, easy-to-enter show- ers and handrails.

Scenario 2

The Empty Nesters Who Entertain

The kids are grown, their stuff is gone (well, most of it), and now it’s finally your turn to play. What could be more fun than design- ing a timber home for just the two of you — and your visiting friends and family? If you enjoy entertaining, consider an open plan that allows guests to move eas- ily from one area to another. However, be sure to incorporate intimate conversation areas in your great room so guests will feel comfortable in the space. Also, many visi- tors will congregate near your kitchen, so try to design it accordingly. A smart idea:

An L-shaped kitchen with a peninsula area or large island for gathering. Create a single entrance in the kitchen to keep people out of the main traffic flow. The rest of the home also can be appointed with entertainment-friendly features, such as a wine cellar or chiller, an entertainment center tucked away in an

armoire, and a wet bar. A gracious entryway and ample sleeping space for overnight visitors are important, too. If you enjoy hosting large dinner par- ties, think carefully about the placement of your dining area. An open dining area will work well for those who are more casual, but still the space needs to be large enough to seat the intended guests. Often in a timber home, a central stone or masonry fireplace can be a major feature, yet serves to divide the two spaces while preserving an open feeling.

Scenario 3

Seniors Who Want Private Spaces

“We wanted space the whole family could live and get comfortable in — big enough, yet still cozy,” says retiree Mel Cooney, owner of a timber home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. “It’s wonder- ful to be able to bring everyone together in a place where they can just relax. We wanted to be together, but not on top of each other.” Like Mel, many retirees are planning large homes to accommodate grandchil- dren and other relatives. In fact, some retirement homes are bigger than their owners’ original houses. Nevertheless, they often feature fewer bedrooms, incorporating a large, central great room instead. While this gathering space is wonderful, private areas also should be

incorporated. Planning for the future is becoming increasingly popular. Universal design elements are often incorporated into the layout, even if both owners are currently in good health. Practical decisions such as designing a one-level house or having a closet large enough to hold a future elevator allows people to have the house they want with future flexibility designed into it.

Scenario 4

The Young Family

Planning a home at this stage can be an exciting and rewarding family project. But keep in mind that designing a house to accommodate children brings different elements into play. Practicality — in terms of both safety and budget — is often paramount. A hybrid design (perhaps with a timber-framed entry, great room and kitchen, but ancillary spaces and bedrooms done in conventional construction) can save money and allow larger and more spacious public spaces than otherwise possible. When it comes to your layout, think about how you and your children will use the space. Will you be able to fit a large play- room into your design? Will you have sepa- rate adult spaces? Do you want to be able to see your children at all times, or do you want to carve out private spaces for them? The age of the children often deter- mines design decisions. Safety concerns (such as open-riser stairs) may dictate the floor plan if a couple has kids under the

age of 5, whereas privacy issues are a bigger factor when designing for teens. If you have an infant in the home, you may want to include a small area off the master bedroom for a nursery. This space can later be transformed into a home office. If your budget doesn’t allow for all of the rooms or amenities you had in mind, plan ahead for future additions. By designing for and even doing the rough plumbing and electrical for future wings ahead of time, money is saved during the next phase.

A rustic Craftsman look that incorporates a mix of materials defines the exterior of the Smiths’ home, helping to create the Belgian farmhouse style that the owner craved. The home’s square footage totals around 3,000 square feet — it didn’t start out that way, but was expanded to accommodate a home office area.

S ometimes the best things in life happen when you least ex- pect them — just ask Chris and

Scott Smith of Marietta, Georgia, who never imagined that a big life change would arrive in the form of a simple ad- vertising postcard. “We were thinking about eventu- ally planning a retirement home, but we hadn’t even starting looking at land yet when we got a postcard announc- ing a foreclosure sale,” shares Chris. “We instantly fell for our valley lot with a stream in the backyard and a 360-de- gree view of the beautiful surrounding mountains.” Nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, the two-acre lot of- fers unparalleled views of nature and a

sense of absolute tranquility. The cou- ple decided to purchase the site right away, plus two more acres across the street so they could enjoy an open view of the mountains, which are part of the famous Blue Ridge. After buying the property, the Smiths decided to forge ahead early with plans for a dream home. “I pored over magazines and websites to refine the look I wanted, and found that I was drawn to the Belgian Farmhouse style,” shares Chris. “A timber-frame structure would be the perfect backdrop for com- bining the rustic, traditional and some- times modern elements that I loved. “ A few months later, the couple at- tended a log home show and found their architect: Michael Grant, from

Modern Rustic Homes, a design/build firm in nearby Ellijay. “Remarkably, Mi- chael translated our first conversation into a drawing we worked with for the rest of the design process,” says Chris. Though the Smiths originally set out to build a weekend retreat since they still had ties to Atlanta, the criteria soon shifted. “As ideas grew and inspi- ration kicked in, they wanted a retreat

that would also be suitable as a retire- ment home when the timing was right,” explains Grant. “I developed a floor plan to provide for one-level living with a guest suite upstairs, and planned the design around their requests for an open plan that would allow for enter- taining and casual living.” The resulting 3,000-square-foot design incorporates varying ceiling heights and beam configurations to help define rooms (in lieu of walls), as well as sight lines that pull your eye to- ward different focal points all around the property. “Visual access from inside to outside was carefully planned by hav- ing windows and doors aligned with interior door openings and hallways,” says Grant. “This arrangement captures the view of the trout stream, mountains and meadows surrounding the house.” The stunning white pine timber frame was also planned carefully. “The client wanted ‘Timber-Frame Lite,’ the look and feel of a timber-frame home, but not a true timber-frame structure,”

explains Grant. “Our solution was a hybrid of conventional construction methods combined with timber-frame elements to create the look.” The construction process, led by general contractor Joe Dixon, was in- credibly smooth, thanks in part to the site itself. “As build sites go, this was a dream lot, with no steep grades, over- sized trees or difficulty getting to the property,” shares Grant. “The property is nestled in a valley — I jokingly told the owners they had the only flat lot in North Georgia. We didn’t have the challenges of building on the side of a mountain.” Once guests walk through the front door, they are instantly wowed. “Having lived with a small dark entrance foyer in our Cape Cod-style home, I wanted to let light flood in this home and really set the stage for a ‘you’ve arrived’ ex- perience,” explains Chris. “When you step in, the foyer area soars two stories, and you see straight through to the fire- place porch and beyond.”

The lines between indoors and out are easily blurred, especially in one of the owners’ favorite areas, the living porch. “It’s one room I can’t imagine living without,” reveals Chris. “We open the sliders for large parties, and with a roaring fire in the fireplace, it’s com- fortable all year long.” In fact, the porch — and the rest of the home — is so comfortable, that it seems to attract more than just human visitors; dragonflies showed up regu- larly during construction, leading the homeowners to dub their home “Drag- onfly Lodge.” Michael saved one of the dragonflies he found, framed it, and presented it to the Smiths when their house was complete. “Dragonflies symbolize good luck, happiness and also change that leads to a deeper understanding of the mean- ing of life,” shares Chris. “It turned out to be the perfect name for our home.” Just like that unexpected postcard, the dragonflies seem to be a sure sign of good fortune and blessings to come.

Q Built-in bookshelves and personal touches for guests transform the upstairs loft hallway area into an inviting retreat. Q A flat, lower ceiling in the dining area helps define the space and keep it separate from the open living room beside it. Q “We wanted to position the house to provide a gracious entrance, minimum steps into the house and to take advantage of the mountain and trout stream view,” says Grant.

At a quick glance, the outdoor “living porch” looks like an indoor living room, thanks to its fine appointment of fur- nishings and textures, plus a traditional stacked-stone fireplace. Designed to have access from the entry hall and the great room, the porch easily becomes an extension of the living room when entertaining. “It’s the one room I can’t live without,” confesses Chris.

W hen it comes to home de- sign, one popular buzz- word that you’ll hear time

and time again is “authentic,” resulting in clients asking their architects to use old, original or distressed materials to achieve a certain aged look in their homes. That works in the drawing phase, but when it comes to construc- tion, many people don’t like what they see, says architect M. Shawn Leather- wood of the Architectural Studio in Waynesville, North Carolina. But the owners — both artists — of this Ashe- ville studio really understood what they wanted, says Leatherwood. “They had a vision.” The couple, who had vacationed in the area for many years, first found the idyllic 5-acre site with views of the Black Mountains and purchased it and razed an existing circa-1950 home. “We wanted a place where the whole fam- ily could work,” says the homeowner. One son is an art teacher, the other a

graphic designer; one daughter-in-law is a photographer, the other a potter. “We knew even before we started that we wanted a barn structure. It would give us the space and volume, and the beauty of the timbers. And there’s a his- tory of barns being used as a sanctuary. In early times they were places to meet. We saw this as a precedent to turn this into a sanctuary of art. A barn made it unusual, but it was exactly the look we wanted.”

To achieve that goal, the homeown- ers worked closely with Leatherwood to design the 3-level

To achieve that goal, the homeown- ers worked closely with Leatherwood to design the 3-level structure that has a gallery and jewelry studio on the lower level; a main level with kitchen and din- ing area and a studio; and a loft with a master bedroom suite and a balcony. The homeowner says he sees the overall design as “hand, head and heart.” The hand level is for painting and making pottery — a classic studio. The head is the gallery space where others can ex- hibit, “but it’s more about the cognitive aspects of art, how to look at what oth- ers are trying to say,” he says. The vision required some definite material choices. They used the old- est timbers — some, according to the homeowner, may have been 200 years

old before they were used to build the barn from which they were reclaimed — on the lower level and left them untouched. The timbers were sourced by Zac Guy at Appalachian Antique Hardwoods. “You could still smell the manure on them. I love that,” says the homeowner. The floor was reclaimed from a South Carolina warehouse. In- stalled in varying lengths, the boards still have cracks, gaps and knotholes. “One tradeswoman spent weeks fill- ing in knotholes that were too big that people might get tripped up on,” the homeowner says. Barn it may be, but a studio that will be a temporary home to artists needs things like electricity, plumbing and lighting, too. “It’s hard to find places to

run electrical wires in a timber frame since there are no wall cavities,” Leath- erwood says. After a long search, they hired Dan Terry of One Associate, a multi-disciplinary designer who helped solve the problem of where to put lights to achieve the internal glow the home- owners were looking for. Recessed lighting is routed along the timbers. “In some spots they pulled up a floor board and routed grooves into the tim- bers to pull the wiring and mortice it up a timber post. It’s almost like a the- ater production,” Leatherwood says. The homeowners didn’t want to see any ductwork and several HVAC com- panies said it couldn’t be done. The owner of Bullman Heating & Air came out of retirement to show them how to

Elevated above a sloped site, the home provides panoramic views of the surrounding forest. “Living here, we have our own ever-changing artwork,” Robert Norfleet says. “In the spring and sum- mer, it is a deep green; in fall, it turns to golden browns and reds. Then, as soon as the leaves fall, the valley stretches out and you can see forever.”

In the main living area, soaring cathedral ceilings are punctuated with queen and king posts with curved bottom chords, dark- stained beams and purlin timber elements. “Together, all of those elements raise the bar and add that ‘wow’” factor,” Bruce Bode says.

Stainless-steel appliances lend a modern edge to the Arts and Crafts-styled kitchen that features cherry cabinets, a knotty alder island and hickory-topped floors.

W hen Robert Norfleet first laid eyes on his now- wife Louise, he knew they

were a match made in heaven. He pro- posed marriage atop a wooded knoll on 150-acres of family property in Man- chester, Tennessee — the same piece of land on which he already had plans to build his first timber home. Louise agreed she and Robert were meant to be, but her feelings about what would become their full-time residence? Those were a different story. “There were just some things in the plan that didn’t work for me,” she says. “The laun- dry was on the lower level, for example.” Together, the couple decided to relocate the home to the same hilltop perch where they were engaged and more changes quickly followed. “Once we chose a new site, we needed to re- design the house completely, so we started from scratch,” Louise says. The

updated plan called for three levels and 4,450 square feet of space to accommo- date the couple and their frequent visi- tors. “If she had said ‘No,’ I would have ended up with a much smaller house,” Robert quips. The only thing that didn’t change in the design: the timber frame ele- ment. “Over the years, I had seen and fallen in love with the mortise-and- tenon construction and had always wanted to build a timber structure,” Robert explains. The couple teamed up with Bruce Bode, the national sales and design manager of Heavy Timber Truss & Frame, to create their new hybrid home, a mixture of timber framing and SIPs (structural insulated panels). Keeping functionality at the forefront of their plan, the project centered on a single-floor living space, which includ- ed a master bedroom on the main level

in addition to a garage, pantry, laundry room and mudroom. “This is their for- ever home, so they wanted a structure that would adapt to their needs in the coming years,” explains Bode. The homeowners also stressed to Bode the importance of an open, wel- coming feel on each of the three levels. On the main floor, a great room com- bines the living room, kitchen and din- ing area into one. An open timber stair- way stretches up to an airy loft where Robert works from home and down to a walkout lower level that features two en suite bedrooms and a full apartment with ten-foot ceilings and loads of nat- ural light. “Seeing now how folks flow and use every inch of space and how they find all the spaces to be warm, con- nected and inviting is exactly what we hoped for,” Robert says. Much of the warmth that visitors find so welcoming comes from the

OPPOSITE: Perched 15 feet above the ground, the home’s screened-in porch feels like it is floating in the tops of the trees. “It’s one of our favorite spaces — our own little tree house,” Robert says.

CLOCKWISE FROM ABOVE: Horizontal balusters created by a local metal worker keep the loft open to the living area below.

Q Engineered floors topped by 1/4 inch of hickory lend real-wood character throughout the house but with none of the upkeep.

Q The upper loft created a cozy, welcoming feel in the entry and also gave opportunity for the open timber staircase to shine.

Q A steam shower, encased with glass and extending upwards to the vaulted ceiling, strikes a spa tone in the master bathroom.

Q The custom mortise-and-tenon stairway, with its pegged tenons and hand-forged iron balusters, connects the home’s three levels and also serves as “a piece of natural art,” Robert says.

Q The master bedroom is a serene getaway with plenty of windows to capitalize on the views, soothing, cream-colored walls and warm, timber accents. French doors offer access to the private deck where the couple can take in the morning sunrise.

thoughtful mix of natural interior ma- terials — from kiln-dried timbers and locally-quarried stone to rustic furnish- ings made from trees felled on the prop- erty. “The simple artisan look speaks to us,” Louise says. “We especially wanted to bring together a beautiful mixture of woods.” In the kitchen alone, hickory, knotty alder and cherry come together under a span of chestnut-colored Doug- las Fir beams and honey-colored tongue- and- groove ceilings. In the great room and screened-in porch, timber walnut and oak mantles punctuate the stone fireplaces. “I proposed to her on the wal- nut log, so we turned it into a mantle,” explains Robert. Some of the exterior elements are also rooted in nature — cedar trusses and gables lend character to the Crafts- man-style façade — but the majority of the materials are man-made for easy maintenance. Pre-finished concrete lap siding and shingles, cultured stone and steel-clad windows and garage doors all fit into the no-fuss approach. Because of the wide variety of ma- terials used on both the interior and exterior of the home, Louise says the build was a learning process not just for her and Robert, but for much of the crew that helped construct the home alongside Bode’s team. “These were local guys that didn’t know a lot about timber frames, but we all went into this in the spirit of learning and creating something beautiful and are friends to this day,” Louise says. Echoing her thoughts, Bode adds this fitting analogy: “Building this house, like building any new house, is like a marriage: you’re in it for the long haul so you enjoy the process and have some fun with it.” Q

RECLAIM

YOUR

ROOM:

F or home owners who are simply looking to give their existing home an eco-friendly boost, redesigning a room with reclaimed materials is

a smart option. “Our clients come to us because they desire something real, something that has meaning,” says Zac Guy, founder of Appalachian Antique Hardwoods, a com- pany that salvages a wide variety of building materials. “You just can’t get much meaning from drywall, granite and a piece of carpet.” Here, we share how to get a classic kitchen while adding some antique charm.

SALVAGED WOOD

From countertops to cabinets to flooring, reclaimed wood offers a unique patina and character. “Our clients don’t just get a piece of wood, they get a piece of American his- tory,” says Guy. Many salvaged wood suppliers also construct cabinetry and mill wood for floors or countertops.

VINTAGE SINKS

An old-fashioned sink will be worth its

VINTAGE SINKS An old-fashioned sink will be worth its Most feature a layer of porcelain over

Most feature a layer of porcelain over a cast iron base. Inspect an old sink closely before buying, but remember that sinks can be refinished if wear and tear is too heavy. Pay attention to the fau- cet holes, as you’ll need to match

your new faucet set to the vintage sink’s existing configuration.

ANTIQUE TILE

Rescued from old buildings, antique or vin- tage tile provides an artisanal touch to a new kitchen. Even a small number of tiles can be used as a centerpiece in a backsplash, surrounded by new tiles. You can find an- tique tiles online or in local salvage yards. Be sure to ask about the tiles’ material and what steps should be taken to seal them. Some tiles may be too porous to stand up to daily kitchen use.

REPURPOSED CABINETS

Who says kitchen cabinets have to be match- ing wood boxes? If an eclectic kitchen is more your taste, open your eyes to other options. Two chests of drawers used back to back and topped with a wood or granite slab could make a unique kitchen island with plenty of storage. Reclaimed industrial shelving or salvaged school lockers could be distinctive storage units in your nearby mudroom. Use your imagination: Virtually anything that can accommodate drawers or shelves goes.

LIGHTING

Creating a vintage look with lighting is easy:

Salvage yards and flea markets offer pieces that you can repurpose for lighting — every- thing from metal drums to vintage bottles to Mason jars. You’ll end up with a whimsical kitchen and the satisfaction of saving obsolete items from the landfill.

designing with reclaimed materials

Driving through the countryside of Pennsylvania or the mountain roads of West Virginia, it’s hard to ignore the century-old dilapidated barns

or the rundown cabins or barns on the side of the road. But what may appear to be a blemish to some, is actually a wealth of materials

and craftsmanship that has survived the test of time. And those materials and quality are making their way into today’s custom homes.

quality are making their way into today’s custom homes. BRICK Just because you’re building a wood

BRICK

Just because you’re building a wood home, doesn’t mean you have to use all wood, all the time. If you love the rustic yet elegant look of old bricks, you can incorporate them into your design. Reclaimed bricks typically are taken from old buildings, houses, and streets that are being taken down or torn apart. Instead of scouring your town for a house slated for demolition, however, call salvage yards and brick manufacturers. These compa- nies routinely collect old bricks and keep an inventory of products.

Some tips:

You may have to contact a few salvage yards before finding the right look or num- ber of bricks for your project. If the supply is limited, extend your search to different states. Try to narrow down your color preferences early, as this will save time as you visit suppliers and look through their inventory. Once you narrow your options, you’ll want to visit a few places or have samples sent to you. Ask for a good size sample so you can see how the bricks will look covering a large area.

Things to remember:

Q

Q

Depending on the type of bricks and their popularity, you may have to wait a few weeks or months to receive them, as the supplier finds the bricks and prepares them for resale.

Old bricks often have concrete, asphalt or other materials stuck on them, triggering a lengthy cleanup process.

stuck on them, triggering a lengthy cleanup process. WOOD Reclaimed wood brings history into your home.

WOOD

Reclaimed wood brings history into your home. Many found woods have been sal- vaged from old barns, industrial buildings — even old railroad ties and telephone poles. Some companies even dive into lakes and rivers to salvage logs that sank on their way to the mill. Many dealers will provide you with the “story” behind your floors. Another benefit: This one-of-a-kind material is often available in wood species that are no longer available, such as chestnut and redwood.

Some tips:

All found wood should be kiln-dried to kill bugs, expose hidden cracks and minimize moisture content. To find the perfect floor- ing for you, request a sample to ensure that you like the actual product as much as the story behind it. Ask pointed questions about the wood’s grade and condition — and only do business with dealers who freely answer these and any other questions.

Things to remember:

Q

Q

Expect to pay about two times the mate- rials cost of new wood for vintage wood. Antique lumber involves more labor (re- moving the wood from buildings, remov- ing nails, drying, etc.), which increases the price. Although some manufacturers offer “blends” of several choices, which tends to be cheaper, found wood is generally more expensive than its “new wood” competitors.

Antique wood is famous for its deep col- or (a result of decades of oxidation) and its one-of-a-kind character. Remember, though, that this means your floors won’t be perfect. You’ll see nail holes, stains— even insect damage in the boards.

see nail holes, stains— even insect damage in the boards. CEDAR SHAKES Cedar has been used

CEDAR SHAKES

Cedar has been used in homes for centuries. The Native Americans of the Pacific North- west first referred to cedar trees as the “tree of life.” They built shelters, canoes and to- tem poles with it. During the 1800s, settlers used cedar to build their cabins and farms. Homeowners have appreciated the natural warmth, earthy colors, and subtle textures of red cedar ever since. When weathered shakes are replaced on existing homes, companies collect them before putting them through a detailed cleaning, grading and sorting process. The recycled shakes are graded for structural integrity before being distributed.

Some tips:

Shingles are sawn and have a smooth surface while shakes are split and have a thicker natural grain and textured look. Shin- gles can be used on roofs as well as exterior and interior walls. Most are square-edged, but you can find designs including octagonal, diagonal, diamond, hexagonal, and fishscale, which can be combined to create an unlim- ited range of patterns. Roofing is usually made up of thicker-width shakes.

Things to remember:

Q

Q

Vintage shakes may be used in their natu- ral state, or treated with fire retardants or wood preservatives.

The last remains of the old-growth forests in Oregon, Washington and western Canada are currently endangered. Addi- tionally, cedar happens to be a particularly slow-growing species, which doesn’t eas- ily regenerate. Because of this, if you have the option to purchase recycled shakes, you should. Check with your local building salvage centers or demolition sites.
