A Few Client & Associate Comments
"VandeMusser Design, PLLC has tested well over a thousand green homes for various certifications over the years and the home we just tested for High Country Timberframe falls into the upper echelon of high-performance houses. With a HERS index of 52 (48% better than code), the house they built for the Greene family in Boone, NC is projected to use approximately 50% of the energy of an equivalent code-built house.
This was done through thorough air-sealing by the builder during construction, the use of cutting-edge materials such as structural insulated panels (SIP's) and insulated concrete forms (ICF's), and the use of ultra high-efficiency HVAC and water heating equipment. What resulted was a beautiful, high-performance house that tested better than 95% of the green houses we normally certify.
The builder was an active participant in the green certification process, asked good questions, and most importantly, listened to the advice we offered to make the house as efficient as possible within the constraints of the construction budget
I would not hesitate to recommend High Country Timberframe to anyone looking for an extremely high quality builder to build an energy efficient house for them. I look forward to inspecting and certifying many more projects from them!" - 2017 Greenbuilt Alliance Inspector
"The craftsmanship of the final project was beyond what I had hoped. All members of Gallery Woodworking demonstrated outstanding skills and ability in design, construction and carpentry. Their polite dealing with our inquisitive customers also impressed me. In all, it was a pleasure to work with Tom, Peter and Alan. I would not hesitate in hiring them again." - 2012 Client
"I love my NEW cabin. Pete A, Pete, Tom the construction staff and support staff took good care of me. They were helpful with all the decisions that needed to be made. I alternated between my home in Florida and the one being constructed in the High Country. I was in Fla. a lot of the time, yet did not worry about decisions to be made in Boone. I knew High Country Timberframe would handle them and look out for my best interests. High Country Timberframe is the BEST." - 2014 Client
"We love the basic concept of the building, but the detailing takes it to a different level. The woodworking is a good example (albeit one of many). It was obvious from the first that the vision of the glazing was extraordinary. But the execution of the actual wall is breathtaking. The configuration, the quality of wood, the craftsmanship all go beyond what one would have expected. This is no well done piece of carpentry; this is a fine example of an artist/craftsman's artistry." - 2012 Client
