Blue Ridge Parkway & Mountains

The North Carolina stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway winds through historic towns and natural wonders. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking, camping, visiting historic sites, enjoying a breath taking waterfall or wandering the streets of a sleepy mountain town. A traditional timber frame is right at home in this part of the state, whether it’s an outdoor kitchen, a gazebo or your new house. Incorporating a natural post or beam cut from a tree on your property makes it even more special.

North Carolina State and Duke Universities, tech and research companies, and medical centers have all contributed to the growing economy in this area. Both cities offer stimulating nightlife, historic sites to visit, unique art, a variety of music, and distinctive shopping choices. Sports fans can take in a game or explore the Sports Hall of Fame. Families will want to visit the annual North Carolina State Fair to see livestock, ride the Ferris wheel or sample craft beer and local wine. This is an exciting area to build your timber frame home.

Outer Banks

North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a 130-mile stretch of barrier islands made up of quaint towns and pristine beaches. Whether you want to visit the site of the Wright brothers’ first powered flight, the country’s tallest brick lighthouse, a wildlife refuge or stroll through beautiful gardens, this is an ideal spot for you. Other options are fishing, golfing, eating fresh seafood, or just spending the day on the beach collecting shells and reading a good book. A timber frame home would make a great base to venture out from, no matter how you want to spend your time.
