The arts and crafts heritage of a Craftsman design is a perfect match for natural log and timber materials. Timber frame trusses and rafters are ideal supports for traditional low-pitched roofs that extend out over patios and decks. When combined with square log walls, cedar shake or brightly colored siding, the exteriors are very reminiscent of early 20th Century designs.

When you go back to the roots of modern style design, you find Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie style. An important component of these types of homes was a connection to natural elements and the surrounding environment. The beautifully natural wood tones of log and timber construction are a perfect fit for modern mountain style. Combine that with big windows that frame your landscape and open layouts that make the most of your square footage and you get PrecisionCraft modern architecture.
The iconic elements of a traditional French Country style home can be incorporated into your mountain style design to create a signature home. These French Country designs are reminiscent of mountain chalets, where you might return home from a day on the slopes, curl up next to the stone fireplace and watch the snow gently fall outside. Kitchens are central gathering points where friends and family convene to share a glass of wine and cook together. How can we design your ideal French Country log home?

For nearly 150 years, North-easterners have been escaping cities for the tranquility and beauty of the Adirondack mountains. Wealthy 19th century families were some of the most prominent visitors to the "great camps" and were a large influence in the creation of an architectural style that would be forever associated with their location. Adirondack designs display a deep connection to their environment, utilizing native materials as claddings and decoration. From railings to chairs and the knobs on cabinet doors, the rustic nature of these classic Adirondack cabins continues to inspire new construction today.
