This beautiful mountain timber frame home was designed by Riverbend Timber Framing, nestled on a lake in Alberta, Canada. Stepping through the front door of this waterfront haven you are greeted by beautiful, arched king post trusses. The trusses echo across the main living area ending in a prow flanked with windows that captures the most breathtaking views of the lake.

A view of the exterior facade features a beautiful prow window separated by an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone chimney. Expansive patios on the main level and walk-out basement lead to a waterfront fire pit. This 4,357 square foot lakehouse offers all of the exterior and interior comforts of a traditional, yet modern timber frame home.
