Over the years, we have worked on well over 25 timber frame and post and beam projects on the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. It's no wonder why these islands are popular destinations during the summer months, both islands feature plenty of shoreline, beaches and many unique local shopping outlets and restaurants.
Back in 1999, Steve Petty, our Cape Cod and Islands timber frame representative worked with a client on their Nantucket timber frame vacation home. The interior of the timber frame home features Eastern white pine timbers and white washed tongue and groove pine on the ceiling to give this timber frame ultimate island charm; the exterior features cedar shingles that have naturally weathered, a classic look for many homes located on Cape Cod and the Islands. While this is an older project of ours, its a true cottage beauty that must be shared!
Check out the interior photos below:
This post and beam living room features a standard ceiling height rather than the traditional cathedral ceiling often found on the first floor of a timber frame home. The whitewashed tongue and groove adds a nice contrast against the pine timbers.
The living room opens up into the dining area, making this a great entertaining space for the whole family.
To keep the space open and spacious, the dining area opens into the spacious kitchen which then flows into a den.
The spacious master bedroom suite.
The playroom for the grandchildren, what a fun space!
