Recycled Douglas Fir timbers surround the field stone Rumford fireplace.
In this Lake Sunapee Timber Frame house, living spaces, a separate studio, and a guest house are interconnected by a covered walkway in the compound style of Nineteenth century summer camps. The recycled douglas fir timber frame utilizes dense old growth material that was salvaged and resawn from 100 year old industrial buildings on the west coast. The house is embellished with built in cabinetry, window seats, stairway book cases and impeccable Craftsman style detailing. Sweeping roofs, large over hangs, and stone retaining walls nest the home beautifully in its environment.
