This is the original Newcomb Timber Frame House Plan in the flesh - see the plan and read more about it on our Timber Frame House Plans website. (There are three versions!)

The Brison Newcomb is another version of the design. - two versions actually, one with a hip roof like this house, and a gable roof version.

So you can see that this design has been very popular.

Inside, the cottage seems much more spacious than its 908 square feet would suggest. It is a comfortable, cozy living space for a couple of adults and the occasional visitors. (Click photos to enlarge.)

The Newcomb is actually a hybrid timber frame, with conventionally-framed walls but a timber framed roof structure and some supporting posts.
