When the May family decided to build their dream home they knew they wanted quality old world craftsmanship and a highly insulated highly efficient home. They decided that a true Timber Frame home was what they wanted. Wind River Timber Frames would partner with Will Construction to create the home. The frame is hand crafted using Oak beams and traditional joinery. All timber connections are made using mortise and tenon joints (no metal plates and no nails). The walls and roof are then filled in using Structural Insulated Panels or SIPS. These panels provide an R-25 wall and an R-40 Roof but just as important create a very tight building envelope. The finished product is beautiful to look at and performs more efficiently than most conventional homes.
The home includes custom features such as oak flooring, Knotty Cherry cabinets, Granite counters, Pine doors & trim, as well as a Gorgeous wood burning fireplace with stone hearth and surround. The home is heated by a high efficiency gas boiler and radiant in floor heat, utilizes high quality low e wood/clad windows and the kitchen includes GE Café energy star rated appliances. The stone, stucco and wood exterior blends flawlessly with the large covered deck that faces amazing La Plata mountain views.
Will Construction enjoys building custom homes to meet the owner’s desires, budget and schedule. The May’s were a pleasure to work with and they are proud of their new home. For more information or to discuss ideas you may have, call us at 970-884-9830 or visit www.willconstruction.com.
