You CAN Build Your Dream Home!
We’re Steve and Linda Brinser, and this is Skipper, our miniature schnauzer.
In addition to appreciating the old world artistry of a beautiful timber frame structure, we also love the warmth of wood and the hominess of a cozy log cabin.
And, as experienced owner-builders of different styles of homes, our home-building experiences have taught us a great deal about:
- Perfecting house plans
- Choosing home packages
- The home building process
- Working with contractors
- Energy saving products
- Money saving ideas
- Building different types of homes
We’d like to share our experiences with you, so that you will be able to build and enjoy the home of your dreams.
You CAN avoid the mistakes that most home owners make, whether you hire a builder, act as your own owner-builder, or do it yourself.
Green Living and Energy Efficiency
Our current home, shown below, is a hybrid timber frame
. The exterior walls and the roof are SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels)
, and it has a no/low maintenance exterior.
We chose to use vinyl siding (yes we did say vinyl) that actually looks like weathered cedar shakes!
High Performance Hybrid Timber Frame Home
Our home is a good example of a green home, and it is ultra energy efficient! We’ll be sharing information on the features that we used to cut down on energy use, and those that make it a green home.
Building a new home can be very stressful. Especially if you’ve never done it before!
We’d like to help make your home building easier and more relaxed. Which is why we will be sharing all the tricks and tips that we have learned—including some things that we would do differently another time.
Make Your House a Home!
An empty house is not a home! Your home will only have character and coziness, when you have furnished it with the things that you love.
We'll give you tips on how to make it all work, and ideas that will help you furnish your log or timber home with the perfect rustic decor.
So, grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s explore the magic of log homes and the natural beauty of wood together...
