We are SO excited to be part of Timber Block Wisconsin’s Grand Opening this weekend! And this isn’t just a little open house – this is going to be a HUGE event!

First off, the home is a Dakota Model from Timber Block’s Classic Series…

Here is the floor plan from a standard Timber Block Dakota Model…

Timber Block pros from our head office in North Carolina will be on hand to answer any and all questions you may have….PLUS, a number of local artisans will be exhibiting their work in both the home and barn.

And here’s a neat tidbit from Timber Block Wisconsin Owner Michael Boomgarden, who describes the location of their beautiful Timber Block home…

“Just east of the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers, Borah Ridge contains four major southern forest types. The wooded bluffs rise almost 500 feet above the Wisconsin River and provide a variety of exposures over different bedrock types including Prairie du Chien and Platteville-Galena dolomites and St. Peter sandstone. The river bottoms have wet-mesic forest dominated by silver maple. Upslope, closer to our cabin, there are areas of mesic, dry-mesic, and dry forest. The groundlayer species are amazingly diverse, changing in composition with change in microclimate.

Our nesting birds are characteristic of locations much farther south. Rare birds include cerulean (Dendroica cerulea), prothonotary (Protonotaria citrea) and Kentucky warblers (Oporornis formosus), Acadian flycatcher (Empidonax virescens), Louisiana waterthrush (Seiurus motacilla). Also present are blue-gray gnatcatcher and tufted titmouse. A succession of recognizable species–ruby-throated hummingbirds, cardinals, Baltimore orioles, woodpeckers and more–visit us on a regular basis. We often see bald eagles circling over the ridge and, on just one occasion, spotted a golden eagle, extremely rare around this area. Wild turkeys and deer share the land with us.

Most of our land is comprised of a hardwood forest, but the area around our cabin is in the process of transitioning from a hayfield into a native prairie. Last year, with the help of Prairie Nurseries, we seeded a substantial area of the land with a native grass/wildflower mixture. Right now, those prairie plants are barely visible, as they put down their deep roots; in three or four years, this should provide a year-round panorama of beautiful wildflowers, as well as a habitat for animal species that are native to the prairies. The grass nearer the cabin is a no-mow mixture, also developed by Prairie Nurseries, which, as it becomes established will require only very occasional mowing, as little as once a year.

We’re in a very special place and because of that we wanted to build exactly the right home, one that reflected the beauty of the land. That’s why we chose a beautiful, eco-friendly home, a Timber Block Dakota.”
