Cambridge Springs Residence

Fred and Susan spent weekends on their forested land in tents, and later a weekend cabin, for ten years. There they began to raise their family and in September of '06, the timber frame for their home.

Fred and Susan came to us with a well-developed plan for their home, some hands-on experience with timber framing, and the desire to use trees from their own land.

This was a very collaborative project. Fred traveled to my shop to help cut the joinery for his frame. And from their woodlot, he and Susan harvested and prepared all of the frame's round spruce rafters, as well as the home's poplar ceiling boards and its cherry, oak, and ash flooring.
