If you’ve ever dreamed of waking up in the natural beauty of a timber frame home, Dave and Jackie Dewey may be able to make that dream a reality. As the  newest independent representatives for Davis Frame Co. of Claremont, N.H., the Deweys have opened Dream Timber Frame Homes, offering services for coastal New Hampshire and southern Maine.

They can walk you through the entire process, ensuring that building your new timber frame home is a smooth and rewarding experience. Having just completed their own retirement home in Cape Neddick, they will offer their firsthand experience to help with the important details, including site evaluation, design features and ensuring the project meets expectations.

The Deweys chose Davis Frame Co. for its integrity, customer service and time management schedules.

While there are many reasons to choose timber framing over other methods of construction, the beauty, affordability and sustainability of timber frames are important factors.

The exposed natural beams and traditional wooden joinery impart an incomparable sense of warmth, comfort and security to indoor spaces. By combining the proven strength of this ancient craft with a few modern technologies, Davis Frame timber frames can also give you one of the most energy-efficient homes available, with the curved braces, chamfered edges and clear, tung-oil finish as signature features.

Dream Timber Frame Homes will be holding open houses in York from May 1 and through September. For more information, call 361-7015, or visit www.dreamtimberframehomes.com.
