This home in Mountain Rest, South Carolina invites exploration of its unique timber frame features & beautiful details.

This custom contemporary timber frame home combines historic elements with modern amenities. The result is a warm and inviting contemporary, comfortable space. Natural light floods the large open rooms and creates a connection to the outdoors. The multiple covered porches expand the usable living area. The timber frame itself is highlighted by the warm tones of the wood. From every angle, whether through the open stairs or from up in the tower, you are treated to a different view of the timber frame structure.


Solid eastern white pine timber frames the home and its succeeding lofts. An open timber frame staircase winds through all four floors. Natural poplar timbers, cut on site, accent this home and help create its unique ambiance.

The full timber frame structure is crafted with traditional pegged mortise and tenon joinery and enclosed with structural insulated panel walls (SIPs). Our scope of work was the timber frame and SIPs. The home was finished by a local general contractor.

You and your team are a credit to your craft and we will enjoy this house for a very long time."

The homeowners wanted to use several poplar trees from the build site. Incorporating them into the timber frame created focal points and was an important design element.
