Framing a Home for Your Heart
Cottages tend to be smaller and simpler houses, often on lakes or hillsides, gaining much of their charm from the landscape around them. Their scale and style gives theirs interiors a unique elegance, warmth, and character, particularly when timber framed. At Highland we take joy in creating compact, affordable, and efficient homes and cottages which are a delight to look at.

"Since the timbers act as the dominant part of the decor, they tend to replace some of the finish work that might otherwise have had to be done. The beauty of the wood, the quality of the joinery, and the design of the framework can give the frame itself a sculptured, furniturelike appearance.
It is finish work."
—Tedd Benson, Building the Timber Frame House (p.32)
