New Mexico Timber Frame Home 1

This gorgeous timber frame ski house in New Mexico is a prime example of how this rustic architectural style can be adapted for a more contemporary look. Designed and built by Hampshire Timber Frame, the home shows off two ways of highlighting the exposed pine beams of the frame: with wood paneling, and drywall.

Wood paneling paired with timber frame construction creates a more rustic effect. In this home, it’s seen on the arched living room ceiling as a visual accent that enhances the ‘cabin’ feel while maintaining a bright, open and modern feel.

Contrasting the exposed beams of the timber frame with white drywall provides an effect that’s crisp and up to date, making the wood stand out even more.

Hampshire Timber Frame designs custom, hand crafted timber frame houses in a variety of wood species, including Eastern White Pine. These ‘true timber frames’ are built without the use of metal connectors, with beautiful all-wood joinery and timbers hand-chosen for their location in the house.
