Great Designs in Wood (67) - Timber Frame Heaven in Texas Hill Country

If we get to pick our homes in heaven, this is what I'll be living in. Simple timber frame, simple interior design, wood so rich you can smell it right through your screen, surrounded with low-lying live oaks under a big sky. Hard to beat.

Check out the complete slide show here.

How to get a cost for such house?
A timber frame purist recognizes that this is a house with timber trusses and some T&G paneling going on. It is not a timber frame.

But is still really nice!

We Texans ain't fer all that fancy stuff. Give us a meal, a bed, and a quick way out, and we're happy. :-)
