Raising a Timber Framed hammer beam bent section
The second floor has 2 dormers and a central balcony that crosses the great room and has space for a home office, and leads to the guest bedroom wing of the home. The home is fully wheel chair accessible and has an elevator that travels to all three levels. A connector space that joins the garage to the home is also built with Structural Insulated Panels so as to maintain the same energy efficiency as the main portion of the house, and it includes a mud room, a laundry space, and a ½ bath. The home is richly detailed with a custom kitchen, a Craftsman style staircase and balustrade, hardwood floors, and beautifully fenestrated and energy efficient triple glazed windows.
