This Oregon Fairytale House Will Win Your Heart
Archer & Buchanan Architecture designed this stunning Oregon cottage that the owners refer to as the Hobbit House. The bents used on the home provided a great challenge for our team and it was really satisfying to see the timbers being raised on this project.
The homeowners had been dreaming up this home for over 10 years, so when it came to execution, they knew exactly what they were looking for. The attention to detail put into not only the timber but the tile and stonework make this home a masterpiece.
Special thanks to our industry partners on this project, Archer & Buchanan Architecture and Eclipse Engineering, who were great to work alongside in bringing this dream home to fruition.
This stunning Oregon cottage, which the owners refer to as the Hobbit House, is filled with exquisite touches that you are going to enjoy. Despite the fact that the bents utilized on the house offered a substantial challenge to the building crew, it was satisfying to see the timbers being raised on this project.
Since the proprietors had spent more than 10 years designing this house, they were very particular about what they wanted when it came to implementation.
The attention to detail used in the tile, stonework, and woodwork of this home makes it a work of art. Thanks to the hard work of Eclipse Engineering and Archer & Buchanan Architecture, this dream home became a reality. Consider the following while planning a project from Canadian Timber Frames Limited’s selection of home designs.
English rural medieval aesthetics served as the basis for this charming and friendly design. They usually have steep roofs and dormer windows to offer extra space upstairs, and gorgeous pairs of square columns support the stunning arch of the portico.
A cottage, log, or camp is typically characterized by extended rafters, deep soffits, decorative roof brackets, and wide window casings. These elements produce a pleasant, cozy, and tranquil ambiance.
This kind of building typically has a large wraparound porch or an enclosed outdoor area to take advantage of the views and the fresh rural air.
All of them are sized for the simplicity of life and family lifestyle, but all of them are meant to serve as a constant reminder to their owners to grab a good book, perhaps a glass of wine, and curl up with a towel in the summer, or next to a fire in the fall and winter.
Used frequently by skiers and hikers, and typically found in Alpine regions. A gently sloping roof, wide, well-supported eaves, exposed structural elements positioned perpendicular to the front of the building, and sometimes elaborately carved brackets, stair, and balcony railings are characteristics of common house designs.
Cabins, cottages, camps, and lakefront properties leave themselves open to a plethora of imaginative designs.
Since it tends to be more rustic than the normal home (thus the name), this architectural style is distinguished by bold, organic, and textured buildings to complement the rough alpine environs, giving them a rustic elegance and integrating into the earth.
Through a multi-level design, it shapes the house to fit the surroundings and terrain. The broad, multi-level roof line follows the terrain’s frequent elevation changes (winter snowfall and spring rain) to give weather protection.
Roofs often feature larger and more noticeable overhangs than a regular home design. It takes advantage of nature by bringing the outside inside and establishing outdoor living rooms through the use of decks, terraces, and other exterior spaces.
The inside and exterior living areas of the house were designed to take advantage of the neighboring boulders, trees, and other natural characteristics.
