A Lakeside Home: Timber Revolution

The extensive remodel of a well-loved 1980’s family home is complete. An overhaul of exterior materials and addition of spaces updated and reinvigorated the home aesthetically and functionally.

What began this timber revolution? The timber frame boat shelter, a favorite and iconic part of this effort.

A new garage and breezeway made strides toward accessible living while a refreshed porte cochere showcases what we affectionately call our “everything” truss for this remodeled home.

Echoed on the lakeside, the same truss design offers shelter over an expansive covered porch and deck.

And how about the before/after? Care was taken to maintain the integrity of the original home while still allowing bold updates/upgrades:

The timber additions continue into the home, introducing timber throughout the great room and incorporating a timber ‘bridge’ loft area.
