A Modern Timber Frame Ranch Home
Woodhouse’s BaliView modern timber frame home plan is a modern twist on a classic ranch home. This floor plan is spacious and fluid, with most of the rooms oriented so that they can take in the best views. Meanwhile, covered decks and patios enhance the views even further, allowing you to close out each day with a relaxing beverage while taking in the surrounding scenery.
The unique design of the BaliView feels very much like an elegant boathouse, making it the perfect option for an inviting lake home. The center Vs that intersect with the scissor truss create an unforgettable V-shaped structure. Additionally, the home features a 3/4 wall separating the living room from the dining room that allows for beautiful displays of artwork to complement the gorgeous views outside.
The three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms lend themselves perfectly to visits from loved ones, with plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable and settled. Attached to one of those bathrooms is an outdoor shower area, where you can privately rinse off while soaking in nature.
This single-floor ranch home not only makes it ideal for the retirement lifestyle, but it also creates striking cathedral ceilings in every room, giving it a grand, expansive feel. Those ceilings are made even more stunning thanks to the beams, rafters, and supportive posts that add definition and visual intrigue to the space.
But the aforementioned details are only the beginning. Like all of Woodhouse’s timber frame homes, BaliView invites you to customize it to your lifestyle and unique style sensibilities. For example, you can remove some interior walls for a more open floor plan, such as turning the cabinetry between the dining room and kitchen into a big floating island. You can also easily rearrange the master bedroom to open up the connection between the bedroom and bathroom. And these ideas are only the tip of the iceberg as the possibilities for customizations are truly endless.
