Topography, lifestyle, elevations, and view corridors are just a few of the aspects your M.T.N degreed architect will contemplate as they work with you one-on-one during the design process for your timber or log home design. Here is a glimpse behind the scenes of some of our current "On the Boards" projects. Will your project be next?
After looking at mountain-style homes for years, the homeowner decided it was finally time to build their dream log home on their lakeside property. The single-story design features flared cedar log posts that greet you at the home's entry and then repeat through the great room all the way to the back patio. The covered patio wraps around one side of the home and includes a freestanding stone fireplace, providing a cozy, luxurious spot to enjoy the view of the shoreline.

The homeowners drew inspiration from an award-winning log home with a unique cross-braced window; however, they prefer timber frame construction. While developing the design, the architect opted to create a modern window arrangement framed with timbers, matching the homeowner's tastes and providing the open concept main level and loft with plenty of natural light and a stunning view of the Tetons.

An uncommonly-shaped lot was the catalyst for this custom home design that will eventually overlook Tahoe. The home's layout was designed from the ground up, using the natural slope of the land and the homeowners' desire to have the master suite on the main floor. To achieve the 'Mountain Contemporary Rustic Style' requested, a combination of milled logs and timber were used to frame this one-of-a-kind home.

This unique modern timber frame home design sits perfectly in its environment on a sloped lot near the ski valley in Taos, New Mexico. The existing driveway cut became the ground floor which includes the garage and a walkout basement. Three distinct levels create views from every room and outdoor space that would not be possible with a simpler one or two-story design.

A metal roof and simple timber frame trusses on this Colorado ranch timber frame home design pay tribute to Colorado's mining history while the use of dormers and secondary roof lines give the impression that the home has expanded over time. On the interior, hammer beam trusses with metal tie rods continue the rustic feel found in old Western log and timber homes.
