2016 Southern Living Idea House

Montgomeryville, Pa.– Timberlane, Inc., was invited to be the custom shutter featured on the distinctive 2016 Southern Living Idea House. Designed by architect Bill Ingram, and built by Bryan Phillips of Ebsco Development Company, Inc. and Town Builders, Inc. this home features an updated Southern charm. According to Misty Chandler, Time Inc’s representative for the Southern Living Idea House, “We are so excited that our 2016 Idea House is performing strongly. We have had more than 4,500 visitors in the first two months (of the open house).”

For the project, Timberlane crafted eight pair of 1 – 5/16” Timberlane Shutters, with fully operable louvers crafted from its popular Western Red Cedar, in a 50/50 split configuration, which would be accented with Timberlane Hardware, including propeller tie-back lag mounts. The Southern Living Idea House design called for 109” inch high shutters around its wraparound porch, creating an impressive welcome for all visitors. Timberlane’s capabilities including matching highly-customized specifications and building to 1/8” precision, made this job easy.

The process of selecting shutters and hardware for this premier project was similar to the experience that thousands of homeowner and trade professionals encounter each year as part of Timberlane’s customer care. “We recognize that every customer’s project is special, so my team builds a relationship with every single person who purchases Timberlane Shutters,” says Russ Andersen, Vice President of Sales and Customer Operations. “We are not about stock rectangles or stores. We are meticulous in delivering a superior product, with extraordinary customization, directly to our customers. My team gets to know every single customer.”

Timberlane, Inc. has been serving homeowners and the building trade industry for more than 20 years. A recent customer satisfaction survey among customers gave Timberlane top marks in quality, workmanship and customer care. Marking Southern Living’s 50th anniversary, this year’s Southern Living Idea House is located in the town of Mt. Laurel, Birmingham, Alabama and is expected to receive more than 25,000 visitors. It is open to the public from June 25, 2016 through December 2016. Timberlane Shutters were also featured on the 2015 Southern Living Idea House. Visit the 2016 Idea House here.
