Chatham Retreat – Pittsboro NC Custom Home Project

We were excited when the Chatham Retreat clients reached out to us through our website about building a true custom home in Pittsboro NC. With a home design in hand, the clients needed a builder to handle the customized hybrid mix of materials and styles required of their design! With a strong aesthetic emphasis on rustic timber frame characteristics, Craftsman & log cabin influences, the home was to incorporate a versatile mix of stone & wood throughout – A delicate balance that would create the perfect home retreat the client desired.

The plan also consisted of uniquely designed indoor & outdoor fireplaces, timber framing, tongue & groove ceilings, poplar bark, shake style, lap log, board & batten sidings as well as stacked stone just to name a few of the desired materials – very specialized materials requiring detailed installation methods. At Heartridge, we are well versed in true customization. It’s a craftsman level skill our build team possesses and the client had read about on our website. This is an example of what we call the “Heartridge Difference”.

While still keeping the project within budget, our clients allowed us the freedom to incorporate our “rustic” sensibilities throughout the design and build process incorporating elements that would really improve the function and design of the home. For this Pittsboro NC custom home project, we included custom elements such as reclaimed mushroom board ceilings, board & batten Interior walls, tongue and groove ceilings and timber framed accents. The homeowners were thrilled with the results and truly had their expectations surpassed when the ‘Chatham Retreat Project’ was finished.
