on the boards

Topography, lifestyle, elevations and view corridors are just a few of the aspects your M.T.N degreed architect will contemplate as they work with you one-on-one during the design process for your timber or log home design. Here is a glimpse behind the scenes of some of our current projects "On the Boards". Will your project be next?

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. A 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.

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.

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.

about the project

This unique project is located on a man-made island, constructed in the middle of the client's private pond. The handcrafted log home structure is designed to include three garages; one for vehicles, one for ATV's, and another for boats with direct water access. Inside, the main area was made for entertaining, with room for a pool table, piano, bar, shuffle board, and plenty of comfy seating. Two master suites are ready for guests who prefer to stay on the island, instead of heading back to the mainland when the sun goes down.

about the project

Clients living in Georgia chose M.T.N to design the perfect mountain modern home for their family property in Idaho. The floor to ceiling windows are framed by metal and timbers to create seamless views from the main living area and great room. Timber rafters extend from the roof to create a covered outdoor space that includes the other side of the shared fireplace and space for an outdoor kitchen.

about the project

Five custom hammer beam trusses flow through the main corridor of this design, from the entryway to the covered deck. On one side of this living area is the expansive master suite. On the other side is a family chef's dream that includes a spacious kitchen, large walk-in pantry, and a sitting area for everyone to share the experience together.
