M.T.N Design - Designs on the Boards

On the Boards

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?

About the project

Key functionality needs and an amazing view of Mount Rainier were driving forces during the design process. Inspired by our single-level Cascade concept, with plenty of view-capturing windows, the layout began to come to life. The client chose lower ceilings for a more cozy feel, but still utilized the open timber layout to help meet ADA needs. An additional 1,008 sq. ft. wing was incorporated for dog boarding and a caretaker room.

Location: Washington

Square Footage: 3,636 sq. ft.

About the project

For this project, our design team was challenged to create a look that paid homage to the historic architecture of Montauk, while incorporating modern roof lines and expansive outdoor living spaces. While the clients used the Brighton as their modern design inspiration, they opted for round log post and beam, instead of timber framing.

Their property in Southern Utah is snuggled within the pine trees and offers the perfect four-season experience. This family's future home needed to reflect their location, provide the best use of interior spaces, and take full advantage of their view. So after careful consideration, they chose M.T.N Design to bring their vacation home to life, and we were with them from their initial topography survey to their engineered construction drawings.

About the project

With their property secure on a beautiful Canadian lake, this couple started working with M.T.N to design their ideal lake home. First and foremost, they chose to go with handcrafted log home construction because they love the non-uniform look of the stacked logs. Lake home design elements include a garage with plenty of space for water toys, a rear door for quick lake access, and over-sized great room windows that will look out to amazing views of the water.
