Pastoral Knoll

Situated near the family dairy farm, this rolling hillside home has a universal design open floor plan and a hybrid timber frame.  The open floor plan is visually and psychologically separated through various ceiling heights and timber frame design. Parallel cord trusses with steel elements act as principal purlins in the great room and accentuate the great room space; this timber frame will have a chainsaw finish and be stained a warm brown color. The house is carefully placed on the site to allow ample sunlight during the winter months and provide over 270 degrees of views out to the surrounding fields and forests.
