Timber Frame Addition to Post and Beam Home

The Design Development Phase continues for our clients putting a timber frame addition onto their existing post and beam home in southern New Hampshire (timber frame addition and remodelled areas in brown).

Changes to the preliminary kitchen design included: (see preliminary design left, revised plan, right)

  • Change one window to two smaller windows, separated
  • Eliminate the cabinets between the two kitchen windows
  • Kitchen sink centered under the left window
  • Refrigerator relocated to left wall, dishwasher located beside the refrigerator
  • Gas cook top (with downdraft exhaust) moved to the center of the island
  • Oven centered under the right kitchen window
  • Beverage fridge / wine cooler located on right wall
  • Prep sink near beverage refrigerator
  • Kitchen island half granite, half hardwood, with a counter and stools.

Several items will be saved in the demolition, including the windows from the upper levels, the refrigerator, the soaking tub and one of the toilets, which will be put to use at our clients’ camp up north.

Interior finishes for the timber frame home, including floors, walls, ceilings, trim, as well as the kitchen and bathroom vanities and countertops are being selected.
