Explore more than 25 finely crafted timber frame homes, inside and out. Guided by floor plans, this photographic journey takes you from an overall look at the exteriors of stately, custom-built homes, through the interiors. Whether designed to be warm and cozy, or awesome and impressive, these homes are inspiring. Pass through inviting foyers to the private worlds of timber-frame home owners. The tours include towering great rooms, dream kitchens, dens and family rooms, and the inner sanctums of master suites. Enjoy views of the open construction possible with timber frame design while perched in the loft, or gaze up the length of a two-story stone chimney. Additionally, examples of a pool house, office, barn, and workshop provide ideas for other areas where the art of post and beam can be incorporated into your property.
