Timber Frame in the Woods
On a blustery day in 2011, a semi-trailer loaded with the raw materials to frame an entire house wound its way through Boyne City. e driver was lost, looking for the site where Adelaine Construction was to begin raising a timber-frame home. Meanwhile, snow was piling up to two feet in classic lake-effect fashion. Melissa Adelaine-Supernault, co-owner of the Harbor Springs construction company, called the local road commission to ask their plow drivers to watch for the truck. Ten minutes later the semi driver was following a personal escort and a freshly plowed path to the home site. “That’s just the way it works in a small town,” Melissa says.
The Holman House, built by Adelaine Construction
The Holman home, built by Adelaine Construction, has every detail the couple could want. “This was a wonderful client for us to work with,” notes Melissa Adelaine-Supernault, CAPS, of Adelaine Construction. “The owner is in the construction business so he knew what he was looking for in a builder and, as a result, it was a real pleasure working with him.” Bob walked away from his current home across the fairway to the construction site of the new home everyday.
