Interwoven Organic Elements and Details

 

Two huge, re-purposed trees anchor the large covered porch that greet you at the main entrance. The trees extend beyond to the indoors, as they form part of the set of  six larger cedar logs supporting the timber trusses and main structure of the house. Harvested on site, the oak tree trunks were stripped, polished and kiln dried to get rid of any bugs before they were milled and installed onsite.

The cedar logs were handpicked in Canada and transported to the home site with the root structure in place so that they could be carefully crafted to rest on the floor.  According to RMT architect Chad C. Salter, “The trees were standing dead and would have most likely been chipped due to the odd shape. We reused the whole tree by having them hand dug below the grade line and craned out without falling.” 

Designed by RMT Architects, this 10,500 sq ft ranch is impeccably executed with beautiful timber joints, custom metal connections and strapping, and features ingleman spruce and lodgepole pine log detailing. 

To top it off, this gorgeous ranch located in Grand County, Colorado, is surrounded by the Indian Peaks, and a tower protruding above the roof line affords unobstructed views of its beautiful wilderness.
