When building your timber frame home, it’s important that you consider your site first and foremost. Your land will define your timber frame. From looking for land to evaluating a site, there is no step more critical to your building process.
Several years ago a guide called “The Mountain Home Guide” was published. We felt that it was important enough to post permanently on the Internet and maintain the site where you can read it or download the PDF version to read off line. This little booklet offers insight into the steps you should take when considering a piece of property. While it was written for the mountains, most of the information works no matter where you’re building.
Timber frames are meant to sit lightly on the land. Because they are sustainable and energy efficient, they are the perfect choice for a home that will last for generations. If you chose the land for your site wisely, you will be well served.
The Mountain Home Guide offers common sense advice on many of the key decisions you’ll make as you buy and develop your homesite. We offer it as important reading you’ll need to do before you purchase your land and as you move forward.
And wherever you build, remember to Build Boldly!
