Great Country Timber Frames is The Barn Yard’s sister company.
This 3,800 sq. ft. timber frame home in Tolland, CT is designed with Rocky Mountain West inspiration. From the massive timbers in the great room to the cathedral ceilings and barn board accents, this barn home delivers on the welcoming, Rocky Mountain lodge feel, while still incorporating modern elements into the design. Entering the home, the visitor is greeted by the timber frame portico with rusty metal roof, as if walking into a lodge in Jackson, Wyoming. Stepping inside, the great room, which was the focus of the design from day one, welcomes with massive timbers and hammer beam trusses stretching skyward 27' at their peak. A stone fireplace is situated between two timber bents and follows the contour of the posts and braces. Reclaimed barn wood is featured on the ceiling, strongly held in place by the timber frame structure. The strong and graceful Douglas Fir timbers, which provide the structure of the great room, balcony, foyer, kitchen, and dining room, are exposed and featured in all their glory. Being a timber frame home and not a log home, drywall is used behind the timbers and offers a nice contrast between rustic and modern.
