  • This family cottage is comprised of four buildings: a main lodge with great room, master wing and sunroom, two guest cabins and the recreation hall that sits above a four-car garage. All are connected via an enclosed boardwalk.
  • The lodge has a jaw-dropping timber frame with English “cruck frame” trusses supporting parallel chord trusses through the great room
  • The entry foyer presented an intriguing design challenge, intersecting the great room at 120 degrees. Four raised chord trusses create a rhythm that is a delight to the eye!
  • Each guest cabin has its own master bedroom, ensuite, compact kitchen and sleeping loft for young guests.
