Modern Timber Home Plans

Riverbend’s MidCentury floor plans incorporate some of the most forward-thinking principles of modern design and combines them with the classic sophistication of a timber frame home. This combination provides owners with the best of both worlds. Each of the custom homes showcase design elements that seamlessly blend Riverbend’s timber framing with modern architectural styling. Exterior timber bents support extended roofs, while interior timbers help open shared spaces where light floods in from large windows.

Modern Timber Home Design Considerations

Mid-Century home designs often include large windows and walls of glass to highlight the beauty of nature, so we will work with you to orient the house to take advantage of the best views on your property. Heavy snow loads may affect the flat roof design found on many modern timber frame homes. Riverbend works with you to custom design your home to meet all your needs as well as any jurisdictional requirements. In fact, every home we design is stamped by a third-party engineer licensed for your build location.
