Traditional Rustic Elegance
The Architectural Studio masterfully designed this home to emphasize the main “public” spaces such as the great room, kitchen, and large covered porch and patio areas, both with wood burning fireplace features. The sleeping quarters are more modest in size as much of the home is designed to enjoy the outdoors and cool summer evenings on the covered porch in front of a roaring fire.
The home, built by NewHeight Builders/Ryan Newell, is rustic in feel with lots of tongue and groove wood walls, washed with just enough paint to give plenty of color but diluted enough to still let the natural wood grain and texture shine through. The sleeping loft/bunk room features a sliding barn door to the great room below and custom built bunk beds for kids. The roof and exterior siding materials are cedar lap siding with a cedar shake roof. Native stone at the foundation and chimney complete this homes palette of natural materials and tie it into its natural surroundings.
