All of our homes are fashioned after authentic 18th Century homes found along the Connecticut countryside. We strive to use sustainable materials and advocate economy of scale, designing living spaces that are practical and perfectly suited to the owners needs. Early New England Homes has engineered a unique timbered ceiling system that works with conventionally framed walls so you can have a home with today's conveniences with all the character of an old New England home. This complete home building system includes plans, provided material lists, and handmade materials and hardware that cannot be found at a local lumberyard.
Every Early New England Home starts with this basic package.
Seven sets of engineered plans and construction diagrams.
Main house framing and timbered ceiling system.
Optional Ell, Wing, or Farmer's Porch.
We handcraft many of the trim details with the finest quality wood products available.
Hand forged or handmade by our blacksmith, just like it was done over a century ago.
