Riverbend Timber Framing: Everett Custom Homes
Winner: Timber Home (2,001-3,000 sq. ft.)
Manufacturer: Riverbend Timber Framing
Builder: Nicholson Builders
Location: Marysville, Ohio
The Everett home is a perfect example of how a traditional-style home can be enhanced with authentic timber framing. The traditional-looking exterior only hints at what lies within, where multiple hammer beam trusses flow through the central living area, providing a bright open space. The warm honey hues of the wood and beautifully detailed connections are an ideal contrast to the white walls and cabinetry. Visitors arrive through a covered walkway framed in timber, and enter directly into the great room, while family comes in from the garage through a more formal foyer. The central living area sits perpendicularly to the entry and faces out to the view of the pond through a wall of windows. Sitting on the other side of the double-sided fireplace is a spacious patio, which shares the same view. The master suite has a private patio on the opposite side of the home.
