In today’s world of custom home building, one style of construction does not reign supreme. In fact, a mix of materials and design styles is now a common request amongst savvy customers. “Today’s homeowners are informed consumers,” says Matthew Duvall of Arrow Timber Framing
. “They often want an eclectic blend of styles and Ron and Nicole, the owners of this home in Battle Ground, Washington, were the perfect examples of that.”
As clients that had owned many previous houses and “seen it all,” the owners wanted something truly unique in this home — including elements that they’d grown to love over the years. “They both really liked the rustic style, but they also wanted to include more industrial, modern elements with an overall elegant fee,” Duvall explains. “A tough bill to fill, but it gave us the green light to get creative without constraint.”See also A Ranch-Style Timber Home is a Big Sky Beauty
The finished 3,755-square-foot ranch-style
home features 3 bedrooms and a substantial Douglas fir timber frame in the main living areas of the house. Conventional framing was used in other less visible areas of the home. “The mantle and shiplap-style siding were both made from reclaimed wood while a lot of the metal used in the house was wire brushed to give the house that distressed, rusted look,” says Duvall. The result is a true hybrid home that celebrates a unique mix of styles and complements its natural surroundings.
