Located on a secluded property in Oregon City, Oregon, this 6,034 sq. ft. hybrid timber frame home boasts a Northwest-style design that fits in beautifully with the surrounding region! We completed this custom home with the help of sister company DC Structures, who created the custom design plans and materials package for this project. It is also the third project we built for these clients — the first being the Oregon City Covered Riding Arena.
The first floor consists of an open-concept great room, living, and dining area, a generous primary bedroom, a recreational room, an office, and a mudroom leading to the three-car garage. Patio doors in the living space open to a spacious outdoor entertainment area with a built-in kitchen and bar, a double-sided stone fireplace, and a two-story patio cover with stained tongue and groove ceilings and custom timber frame trusses. An adjacent exterior staircase leads to a cozy deck that accesses the upstairs living space. On the second story, you’ll find another primary bedroom with a similar walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom to the downstairs bedroom. There are also two additional bedrooms with private bathrooms, a craft room, and a laundry room on the second floor.
Part of what makes this residential design so unique is the sheer amount of custom built-ins and features that went into creating this home, with some built by us and others designed by local artisans. For example, our team crafted the custom 28′ x 10′ heavy timber portico outside the entryway, the two-story patio cover in the back, and the decorative heavy timber trusses that adorn these structures and other areas of the home. Meanwhile, local artisans and makers created some of the other eye-catching aspects of this design, including the Art Deco-style backsplash made from scrap material in the dining area and the custom metal railing on the rear deck. Something else that differentiates this home from others like it is the method used to construct this project. By utilizing our industry-leading Simple Build System, our four-person crew was able to quickly frame this structure without compromising quality and easily drop in non-structural elements as requested during construction.
