The design plan for this timber frame vacation home was not complex. It needed to be suitable for large family gatherings of the owners children and grandchildren while fitting in with the landscape; a gorgeous site located on a back field of an old farm that sloped down to a lake.
An open floor plan was a must in order to take advantage of the lake views from every room. Also necessary was open space to interact with family without a feeling of being cramped. Last, but not least, it needed to be family-friendly while maintaining an air of rustic refinement.
