Parade of Homes 2016 – Timber Frame House
The 2016 Parade of Homes features hybrid timbers in a classic “arched” styling. Gables and the entrance in a darker stain give a beautiful expression without being overbearing. The back patio has more pronounced “post and beam” and the entire package is superbly balanced.
Getting a style that would match the old-world look and feel on a bigger scale was important. Correct proportions for the entry roof height and garage gable were key to the design. Style details, such as the addition of light blocks, pulled the look together. The back patio is optimized with a hybrid system using conventional trusses over the artistic beams, posts, and knee braces. It is always amazing to witness a large-scale project come together!
