It will describe the process, provide images and plans of successful timber framed houses, and, hopefully, guide people on their quest for the house of a lifetime.

Authors Tina Skinner of Schiffer Publishing and Jonathan Vincent, AIA, Director of Design here at Timberpeg® have produced an incredible book filled with beautiful photographs, creative floor plans designed by several architects as well as Timberpeg Design, and great ideas and tips for building your new timber frame home.
