Coveted Crib: A Nantucket House and Library

When you're a serious bibliophile, a library room just won't cut it. If you have the means, you create a separate building to house your beloved tomes.

That's just what a Nantucket homeowner did. With classic design details, and a simple exterior that belies the interior's gorgeous detailing and timber framing, this is truly a coveted crib. Perhaps the most stunning detail of this project is found in the library, where purlins and medieval-style cruck framing create an open ceiling that looks like the belly of a great wooden ship. I can just imagine getting lost in a novel in this library, can't you?
