Sheltered In Timbers - The Oakbrook 2

Derived from the Oakbrook plan within our Honest Abe collection, and in full collaboration with our client, this balanced rendition has been meticulously fashioned in care for the client and the client's new residence. Like the breathtaking wooded property that this new home will adorn, it will reflect the strength, beauty, and lasting character of nature's finest building materials. In addition, it will provide the healthy environment that log walls and the timber beamery will deliver for generation after generation. For many years enlightening articles have been published as to the inherent ability of logs to not only act as storage capacitors for energy efficiency but also to continually provide natural air purification for residences.

And in special recognition for our client, the crystal clear cut vision and multiple contributions you have provided to us have made this project refreshingly straightforward to design and to participate in, while always seasoned with unfaltering professionalism, patience, and genuine kindness. For this we express lasting gratitude and unforgettable thankfulness, forevermore.
