Timber Frame Homes From Shore to Shore

Craftsman Style HomeFor over 30 years Riverbend has built timber frame homes and barns for clients across the nation and beyond.  Today we would like to highlight some of these homes and their unique stories. No matter where you live, Riverbend has the experience to help you build the timber frame home you’ve been dreaming of.

 Craftsman-style in Colorado

This timber frame home, built in Colorado, is a classic craftsman-style design that includes large bungalow porches, deep overhangs, and intricate timber framing throughout. The two-level home’s interior features tall ceilings, an open main living space with a grand view. An important design factor for the couple was that the home interact with their majestic 35 acres that faced Mt. Garfield. The inclusion of a sunroom, two expansive decks, and porch created the perfect solution for enjoying these vistas. Melody Lane Modifications

Modifying in Ohio 

Built in Ohio, this contemporary timber frame home was based upon Riverbend’s charming, 3,245 square foot Melody Lane design concept. Our custom design process was able to accommodate the Ohio couple’s need for more space, which included an additional master bedroom on the second floor for the couple’s parents.  The two-car garage was also turned 45 degrees to create a better fit for their lot. Through all of the changes, the look and feel of the original Melody Lane can still be seen in their custom timber home.

Energy Efficient 

Complete Customization in Canada

This Alberta farmhouse is an original design inspired by the culture of the country itself. This Canadian couple loved the rustic rock and timber framing of old Quebec City and wanted to bring that design style to Calgary. In addition to the specific look and feel they wanted to attain, the couple also wanted to build an energy efficient home.  Riverbend’s inclusion of structural insulated panels (SIPs), insulating concrete forms (ICFs) and other energy efficient technologies helped this home receive an Energuide rating of 86.
