This timber frame cabin is designed by M.T.N Design in collaboration with PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes, set against the historic beauty of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It was the homeowner’s wish to have a cozy retreat that would seamlessly blend in with the style of the homes in this charming ski town. The 2,415-square-foot, two bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom cabin perfectly echoes the local heritage—yet with a modern approach.
With bold, rustic styling, this home offers imaginative details that creates the illusion that is was built a century ago. This includes a traditional wrap-around porch, large, hand-adzed timbers, chinked wood siding; and plenty of unique finishes. There are also energy-efficient, structural insulated panels (SIPS) for the walls and roof.

What We Love: This timber frame cabin invites you to get comfortable and stay awhile. An idyllic home surrounded by picturesque mountains, this is a one-of-a-kind getaway with a relatively small footprint. Light-flooded interior living spaces are warm and inviting, perfect for family retreat.
