CT Energy Star Timber Frame Home

The first schematic design for an Energy Star timber frame home in Connecticut is completed. The barn style theme fits in nicely with the theme of the surrounding area architecture.

The home will be designed for the ENERGY STAR® program, which will include ENERGY STAR approved insulation (SIP panels), duct system, mechanical ventilation system, windows, heating and cooling units, lighting, and appliances.

At 2500 square feet, this energy efficient home has views to the south and west. The first floor features a timber frame cathedral great room and a Tulikivi stove. The kitchen has views overlooking the property and is open to the dining, with easy access to the laundry room, and large master bedroom suite.

The second floor has two guest bedrooms, a full bath, and a spacious loft overlooking the great room.

In the next design stage, we will complete room dimensions add interior and exterior details.
