The Contemporary Timber Frames Homes Series encapsulates the most current trends and practices, blending them with Woodhouse’s building system, creating timeless timber home designs that can be enjoyed for generations. Using the best elements from modern, industrial, and minimalist design, we create unique spaces that are in tune with nature, both practically and aesthetically. Contemporary designs were a natural choice to pair with timber frame homes because exposed wood is central to most modern home aesthetics and wood is one of the most environmentally friendly construction materials. Woodhouse’s use of Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) and insulated window technology were also a natural fit for this these contemporary timber designs, allowing these floor plans abundant access to natural light and views, while maintaining the highest insulation and energy efficiency ratings possible.
