Timberpeg Brand Timber Frames

Timberpeg Brand Timber Frames
~ The Artisans of Post & Beam ~


International Builders Show in Orlando, FL

February 8 -11, 2012 sponsored by the NAHB and Hanley Wood.

When my son Andrew started his Disney Internship in Hospitality Management last week, I was fortunate to be able to stop by the 2012 “New American House”, a reinterpretation of the classic “white box” of the 1960’s and 70’s made popular by world renown architects LeCorbusier and Meier. .
This house was quite interesting to see in person, showcasing design trends and technologies, the latest green building products and materials, as well as many innovative construction techniques.

The home was designed by architect / builder Phil Kean of Winter Park FL. It received Emerald level certification from the US Green Building National Standards program, USGBC LEED for Homes Platinum Certification, and the US DOE Energy Star.
