How Sweet and How Green It Is . . . Blansfield Builders Completes Spectacular Timber Frame Home on Candlewood Lake

Sited for maximum enjoyment of the lake, the open plan flows easily and every room has a lake view. Designed by Erich Diller, this home incorporates state-of-the-art green features - geothermal and photovoltaic solar. Blansfield built the home using Timber Frame construction with materials supplied by Timberpeg - the artisans of Post & Beam.

Post & Beam construction is a centuries old technique of joining vertical posts and horizontal beams to create the skeletal frame of a building. A Timber Frame home is a classification of Post & Beam construction. The majority of Timberpeg homes use the timber frame construction method, which is to build using solid timbers with integral mortise-and-tenon joinery, secured with wooden pegs eliminating the need for unsightly exposed metal fasteners.

The home is cozy, while still having the drama of cathedral ceilings. It has a very interesting mix of somewhat traditional Shingle Style exterior detailing and some very clean, modern aesthetic design elements on the interior; including a stainless steel staircase and sleek limestone fireplace/ chimney with a cantilevered raised hearthstone.
