About the project

The future owner of this custom timber frame home came to M.T.N Design wanting a new home, but not a new location. He decided to move the existing home to a new location on the property to allow his new home to take advantage of the panoramic views of the Virginia mountains. The result is a home that fits with the location's history and includes a copious amount of outdoor space to enjoy the landscape.

Location: Virginia

Square Footage: 3,552 sq. ft.

About the project

Sharp angles, geometric window groupings, concrete, and timber give this home design impeccable style that stands out on the client's waterfront property. The timber frame offers a connection to the home’s forested coastline location while providing a modern, open layout. Details, like the kitchen's pass-through window to the outdoor kitchen and 1,880 sq. ft. deck, cater to the indoor-outdoor lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest.

About the project

A hybrid structure of milled logs and timber framing help create this unforgettable rustic home. The client requested a naturally weathered finish to accompany the large amount of stone that will be used throughout the home's design. An L-shaped layout was used to capture 180-degree views of the valley below. With 5 bedrooms and a bunk room, this large home will serve as a lodge for family members as they return to visit their cattle ranch in Oregon.

Location: Oregon

Square Footage: 6,827 sq. ft.

About the project

This craftsman style timber frame design was created to replace the clients’ existing structure on their Montana property. Heavy timber trusses reach through the entirety of the main level, creating a lasting impression. Since this is the family’s hunting lodge, four bedrooms, a large mudroom, and a 1,200 sq. ft. trophy room were incorporated into the layout. Combined with the property’s natural vantage point, the wrap around covered deck offers the family a place to scout for the next adventure as well as a place to put their feet up after a long day.

Location: Montana

Square Footage: 4,529 sq. ft.

About the project

Five curved timber bents flow high above the main living area of this modern Colorado timber home. The entire layout cascades effortlessly down the slope of the lot where the basement level houses a basketball court, sports lounge, and exercise room. The main level includes a private courtyard in the center of the home with access from the living room and foyer. For outdoor living space with views, there is a partially covered deck on the main level and a balcony on the second floor that is covered by the extension of the curved roof above.
