Overview Awards

This project involved the design of a vacation home large enough to entertain multiple guests and family members while maintaining a 'cabin-like' mountain charm. This was achieved through gambrel roof massing, over-sized soffits with heavy timber support brackets and end gable roof flairs used to maximize volume while allowing for variations within the overall roof lines. In addition, multiple covered exterior porches and interior fireplaces enhance the overall sense of charm and offer gathering spaces each uniquely configured to maximize views towards the breath taking vistas beyond. 

The home construction was stick framed with exterior materials consisting of poplar bark siding and half timbering, local river rock veneer, cedar wood shingles and board-n-batten throughout. Interior spaces consisted of wood plank walls, hardwood flooring and salvaged heavy timber beams.  All exterior and interior materials were native to the region and locally harvested. 

The result equated in a welcoming mountain retreat offering all of the benefits of high country living while taking full advantage of its one of a kind location within Linville.
