We designed this #timberframe home in #LakePlacid to maximize #passivesolar heat by orienting its large wall of windows to soak in the winter sun. • • The simple, #openfloorplan and large, easy-to-install shed roof make this our most economical home. • • • Our clients (both Olympic athletes) wanted one of our #energyefficienthomes to keep the elements out through winters in the #adkhighpeaks. • • • We installed the roof and walls — made of #structuralinsulatedpanels — with #easternwhitepine #timbers. These SIPs are assembled to create an air-sealed #buildingenvelope and have helped clients achieve #netzero benchmarks. • • • Design: #TimberbuiltBURKE • • • Floorplan and more details in our bio link. • • • #adirondacks #timberframing #homedesign #instahome #dreamhome #customhomes #customhomebuilder #architecture #buildersofig #houseandhome #greenbuilders #rusticdesign #rusticstyle #rusticmodern #mountainmodern #contemporarydesign #mountainhome #mountainstyle

Cook Forest State Park, northwestern Pennsylvania, last week. This state park, rated one of America's top 50 by National Geographic Traveler magazine, preserves what may be the finest and largest stand of old growth (virgin) forest east of the Rockies. 6 photos 1500-2000 acres of old growth forest, dominated by Eastern White Pine and Eastern Hemlock, grow here, boasting many trees more than 150 feet tall and around 400 years old. The largest section of old growth, which I hiked in all day, is called the Forest Cathedral. The Clarion River (photo 2), supposedly great for fishing, runs through the southern margin of the park #pennsylvania #pennsylvaniastateparks #stateparks #cookforeststatepark #forestcounty #clarionriver #jeffersoncountypennsylvania #whitepine #hemlocktrees #easternwhitepine #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #virginforest #virgintimber #trees #forests #nationalgeographic #travelermagazine #fungi #moss #nurselog #hiking #gohiking #rocks #nature #naturalworld #biology #dendrology

Anne’s recent project! From @stillwella “Last week I participated in the Fredericton Art Alliance Artist in Residence. I applied for this a few months back and it was my first time applying for anything art related so naturally I was apprehensive. I almost let my lack of confidence get in the way and bailed but knowing the theme this year was ‘trees’ I literally couldn’t stop thinking about it. My inspiration is deeply rooted in nature from my block prints, drawings, paintings, ceramics, and general design concepts. I actually can’t step away and I truly don’t want to. This summer trees have been on my mind incessantly. Trying to find meaning beyond beauty isn’t hard when it comes to nature related species. This particular design is an interpretation of my dearest Eastern White Pine. The tree that will most likely get me into a car accident when I can’t look away on the highway. As if I wasn’t obsessed enough this residency made me physically tune in to why exactly my love for trees ran so deep. They are vital to our structure, survival, protection, spiritual inspiration. For all that and more, I am thankful and so spoiled to live amongst such powerful species.” #inspiredbynature #frederictonartalliance #printmaking #blockprints #linoleumblockprint #linocut #trees #nature #natureprint #blackandwhite #whitepine #easternwhitepine #handcarved #handpressed #handcrafted #art #frederictonart #newbrunswickart #canadianart
