This beautiful rustic stone and timber dwelling with a guest house was designed by Locati Architects, located in a rural area just 20 miles outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Locati Architects are well-known for their custom home designs, mainly in focused in the regions of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. They branched out into Canada for this decadent home, creating another one of their stunning masterpieces.
This is the only home in Ontario that looks like something that belongs in Montana. So much so, that strangers stop to take pictures of this exquisite property. The main residence is comprised of 10,000 square feet, where the architects used multiple forms and textures to make it seem less imposing. The compound includes the main house, a guest house, barn and other structures. Its a post-and-beam log cabin featuring an aesthetic of rustic elegance.
The architects specialty is to “take their clients hopes and dreams and turning them into reality, incorporating any natural elements and details that the client wishes to make the end result feel like a home should: a place that people feel connected to on every level,” states Locati Architects. Now on with the home tour… we also included images of the spectacular guest house that resides on the wooded property.

Just off the main entryway is a grand living room, with soaring ceilings and wood trusses. A cable is used for tension. When there are no ceiling joists, the cable assists with tension, preventing the walls from falling outwards. This is commonly seen in post and beam construction as well as in log homes to create the open space aesthetic.
