The Comforts of Home

There’s something in the way a home joins the landscape that affects us on a deep level. Natural timbers and, potentially, stone and other local materials create a connection between a timber frame home and its surroundings that is aesthetically soothing. Indoors, a timber frame gracefully shows us exactly how it’s holding everything up, a strong structural form that’s both attractive and comforting. And the energy efficiency of the insulated panels that envelope a timber frame home not only make it warm, but also assure us that we’re conserving energy and saving money on fuel.

We want to help you achieve all of these comforts in the home of your dreams!

 

Custom Timber Frame Homes

At Brooks Post & Beam, we’ve designed and built woodsy cabins and grand statement homes, waterfront getaways and long-planned forever homes. We take the word “custom” seriously — it’s your dream we want to make reality. With a custom home design, you can accommodate your need for space and the requirements of your particular home site, and we’ll even help you plan spaces to allow for specific furniture you want to have in your new home. Your unique lifestyle helps feed the creative process.

The Ell adds the equivalent of a large room to a home. Use it as a mudroom and laundry, or take advantage of the space to create a new pantry, store a chest freezer and add a half-bath to accommodate a larger family. If your eat-in kitchen has started to feel cramped, use The Ell as a spacious dining area.
