A Timber Frame Home Goes Cottage Bungalow

When I first heard about this post and beam home being built in northern New England, I though “hmm…a timber frame bungalow, how’s that going to work?” Turns out, it works great !  The idea that timber frame homes have to be large or “barn-like” is a total myth. They can be whatever size you like and whatever style suits your taste.

This timber frame bungalow sits beautifully at the crest of a sloping hillside.

The design turns the top of the rise into an advantage for garage space.

Two things become immediately apparent from this angle; the view is spectacular and the house isn’t as tiny as it first appears.

The porch is a key element of good bungalow style.

The interior of this bungalow is wonderful.  Rooms are open yet not cavernous. Spaces flow nicely into one another, allowing the home owners to use each room for multiple purposes.

The great room foor plan is open and spacious, making the home to feel larger than it actually is.

The galley kitchen is beautifully done in authentic reproduction Arts and Crafts style while incorporating all of today’s modern amenities.

The master bedroom is painted in a warm sage green to offset the fabulous timber frame structure.

The master bath’s tile floor is a nod to the floors of the Victorian era while the room remains firmly grounded in the Twenty First Century.

I hope after reading this post you’re now like me, a firm believer in the idea that the timber frame structure is extremely adaptable. It can be any style and size you want. All you have to do is imagine!
