Mountain style architecture tends to lead an image of natural, heavy, textured, building materials. Some may think of it as a simple one-story rustic cabin in the woods dating back to 1800’s or visualize a large contemporary timber-framed home with gabled dormers and steep roofs, often mixing in natural stone that is native to its surrounding.
Elements such as reclaimed wood beams, exposed rafters and columns give the home a sturdy presence, able to protect from snow loads above. But when you think of modern mountain architecture, what images come to mind?
Uncluttered rooms that offer large layouts with tall ceilings lead to a brighter and calming atmosphere.
