NH Timber Frame Update

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since we began Bob & Kelley’s timber frame home design for their four-season vacation home in South Peak Resort, Lincoln, NH.

The interior walls are up, insulated, drywall is installed and the plaster is being applied. The electrician has roughed in the final light fixtures and switches, and the stone for the fireplace, which will extend three stories, is ready to be installed.

Some materials in the home:

Dense Select Structural FSC Certified Douglas Fir timber frame
1x8 T&G SPF, Kiln Dried, Select "Japanese" Grade boards for interior roof, pre-finished
4 ½" XPS Structural Insulated Wall Panels, R-20
8 ¼" EPS Structural Insulated Roof Panels, R-30
All of the Eagle Windows have been installed and they fit beautifully. The color of the exterior cladding of the windows is called "moss", which complements the clear vertical gain cedar siding.

Check back for further progress!
