Affordable Post & Beam Quality


THE CAMDEN SALTBOX COTTAGE - Blue Water Post and Beam's new Super energy efficient saltbox cottage combines all of the features today's buyers need to be looking for. Super insulation above and beyond standards. R-63 in the cap. Wall insulation that insulates the framing as well as the spaces between. Beautiful "Post and Beam" construction. Exposed beams,solid pine plank floors throughout. State of the art super efficient gas fired heating system with "on demand" domestic hot water.  Sky lights standard . Cathedral ceilings standard. Poured concrete foundation with optional "garage under". Maintenance free exterior. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1400 square feet.  

The Camden Saltbox cottage is Blue Water's flagship design and employs all of the engineering concepts developed for our Post abd Beam building system. These concepts can be adapted to most designs (Capes, ranches, colonial, federal) to produce low cost energy efficient homes. Its important to remember that the exposed framing feature of our homes can be limited to just those areas desired.

And for those "Do-it-yourselfers", Blue Water Post and Beam can build a super insulated weather tight shell for less than you might imagine.
