At Woodhouse we work with you to design the kitchen of your dreams. We know that the kitchen is the heart of the home and where families gather to cook, share meals and good times. Woodhouse is proud to share our 2013 award-winning kitchen design.
This kitchen was awarded the 2013 Readers’ Choice award for Best Kitchen and featured in Timber Home Living magazine. From the article:
To create a more human-sized aesthetic in this warm and welcoming kitchen, the design team at Woodhouse milled and installed joist timbers to create a frame above the work space. Another interesting design detail: The pass-through counter to the left of the range was
designed with that arch and lovely black walnut finial to highlight the
shared space. “To open up the kitchen even more, the room walks out through French doors to a beautiful
flagstone patio,” says Patrick Seaman, president at Woodhouse. The combination of wood cabinets, black granite countertops, milled travertine flooring and dense coastal Douglas fir timber frame brings depth and visual contrast to the space.

We broke ground on our new design studio in April. The studio is located next to our current administrative offices (the big timber frame home on the hill) and is 2,000 square feet all on one floor. The timber frame is in southern yellow pine and is a riff on a traditional crux frame style.
Those of you with whom we’ve had the pleasure of hosting at the Woodhouse campus in the dairy country of northern Pennsylvania know that our current design studio is a ramshackle 1850s farmhouse that is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. It is, in fact, the home that our founder lived in when he cut the first Woodhouse timber frame (in the side yard) in 1979. It evolved into the Woodhouse corporate offices and then into the Woodhouse design studio in the 1990s. Although filled with memories, it does not make for the most conducive space with which to consult on timber frame design and we have long wanted a new, comfortable, and thrilling timber frame space within which our designers can perform their magic and Ray
can conduct his design consultations.
