Heirloom Home: A Timber-Framed Home in South Carolina

This earth-honoring home on a South Carolina barrier island is sustainable and sensible, luxurious and livable.



Exposed timbers, ceilings of heart pine, clay-covered walls and reclaimed-wood heart-pine flooring add beauty to the gathering room while revealing the home's solid construction.

A magnificent stained-glass and reclaimed wrought-iron chandelier illuminates the third-story foyer. Oversize double doors lead into the master bedroom. The glass in the doors offers privacy while allowing light to penetrate the room.

The warm, exposed wood of the timber framing defines the open plan of the kitchen and dining room, which flows into the gathering room. Rich maple cabinets in the kitchen are fronted with seeded glass. Stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances lend a contemporary accent to the abundance of wood.

In their commitment to create a healthful, low-maintenance home, the Porrettos left the cypress siding unstained, allowing the home to weather to a lovely gray.

The spacious second-floor guest bedroom is brightened by windows that look to the marsh and boats cruising to the ocean. Overhead, the heart-pine ceilings are the sub-flooring for the third story.
