How to save on a timber frame home

TALAMOGA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A pair of twin daybed frames are about to be a huge hit with the New York City market, and you can expect to pay up to $1,200 more per square foot for them.

Woodsman International says the frames, which are available in both single- and twin-room models, are a great investment in a multi-unit home.

The company’s head of sales, Chris Smith, said the frames offer two things.

First, they provide more insulation than the traditional wood frame home, which can cost as much as $300,000.

Smith said the company’s single-room frames have a more efficient design.

He said it’s a good investment for a home owner who wants to reduce their energy bills.

Woodsfarms.com, the online home builder, said its single-bedroom single-bed home is selling for about $1.8 million.

But the company said it has an average price for two-bedroom units on the market of $2.7 million.
