Connecticut Timber Frame Home Exterior
Picture 1 of 4
This timber frame house was built in an historic district of a Connecticut town to the exact proportions as the 18th Century barn that once inhabited the same space.
Built in a historic district of Guilford CT, this house was constructed on the site of a former Victorian barn that had deteriorated beyond the point of repair. A new douglas fir timber frame of the same scale and proportion was designed to be the core of the home. Salvaged materials from the original barn were reused on both the exterior and interior. The three story home allows for a garage, office, and work space on the first floor and living spaces on the upper floors, which can be accessed by elevator. The living room, dining room, and kitchen share an open floor plan and a cathedral ceiling.
