Mountain style timber frame homes can be designed to fit nearly any budget.

Mountain Style Timber Frame Homes

Mountain-style timber frame homes are often designed to capture the essence of the historic Adirondack Great Camps and architecturally embrace the sloped building lots frequently found in the mountains. Today, this style of home is built in mountains all over America by those who revere nature and want a home that reflects that love.

Mountain Homes Come in Many Styles

Endless styles of mountain timber frame homes have been developed. While many were designed with people who have active lifestyles (particularly those who love to ski) in mind, timber frame homes are easily customized to create the perfect mountain home for those who will live there.

Although many different mountain home styles exist, certain materials and features tend to be popular among mountain style timber frame homes throughout the country. For instance, Southern yellow pine is a timber species that is frequently selected. Simple joinery is another style preference that is common.

Other popular mountain-style timber frame home features include:

  • Central fireplaces
  • Open floor plans
  • Great rooms with high ceilings
  • Bridge lofts
  • Roomy gourmet kitchens
  • Lower levels for additional area
