We’re excited to share our journey of creating a one-of-a-kind custom home by Lake Winnipesaukee. Our Chief Construction Officer, Rob Nunez, discusses how Chinburg’s team managed this project’s unique challenges, resulting in a stunning, energy-efficient home.

Navigating the Challenges

Located on a steep hill, this site had a narrow driveway that presented accessibility challenges. Despite discouraging other contractors, our Chinburg team embraced the obstacles and showed determination in making the homeowner’s vision come true.

Innovative Construction Methods

We employed six different framing methods during this project – timber frame, structural steel frame, ICF blocks, Sips panels, stick wood framing, and panelized wood framing – showcasing our commitment to innovation and eco-friendly practices.


Custom Elegance and Lake Views

The home features custom white oak flooring, a striking white oak wall feature, and matching floating pantry shelves that emphasize a harmonious design. To celebrate the beautiful lake views, the owners selected a 16-foot glass Nana wall system, complete with motor screens and angled shades.


Unique Details and a Stunning Home

We installed elegant touches like the single-stringer floating staircase, the custom heated mirror in the master shower, and a custom sauna.


Take a Tour

At Chinburg, we go the extra mile for our clients, proudly delivering their dream homes, even in the face of challenges.
