Berkshire Addition is finished and furnished

March 27, 2014

Last summer, Timberhomes hit the road with a frame in tow, headed beyond Western Massachusetts to the Berkshires. We spent two days preparing the site and raising a frame for a client who’s existing cabin was ready for an addition. After some fine company and fabulous hospitality, we headed home. Local carpenters who helped during the raising finished the project, and the result is beautiful-a room full of light, warmth, and connection to the forest outside. Thanks to the owners for the photographs, and complements to the carpenters who enclosed and finished the addition.
