Sometimes you just have to step back and marvel at the beauty of a timber frame home. When Neal and Pam started their timber frame journey, they had a vision….a vision of beautiful, elegant, rustic mountain homes that brought together strength and character of timber frames with the charm of the mountains of Western North Carolina. To say that they succeeded would be an understatement.
The Pond and the Cottage are beautiful examples of timber frame homes. They are both available for sale and for rent here in Franklin, North Carolina…just west of Asheville.
So today we’re sharing videos of these beautiful homes. Walk through them and enjoy the beauty…it is certainly worth sharing.
Thank you for allowing us to share the beauty!
WNC Magazine has a great article about the Pickartz’ new timber frame home in their March/April issue. This insightful piece catches the spirit and character of this timber frame project.
We spent many years planning our new home and were certain that it needed to fit not only our lifestyle, but our style (such as it is).
Timber frames are special homes. They offer each owner the opportunity to develop a plan that just “fits”. With spaces that aren’t confined by bearing walls, they can design around much loved furniture.
You can visit the Pickartz home either in person (by calling Bonnie at Goshen) or virtually (at http://www.buildingatimberframe.com ). It is compact and charming.
So check out the magazine online or pick up a copy. This is their annual home and garden issue and you will find great information.
