architecture is inspired by the natural environment and features open floor plans, high ceilings, heavy timber detailing, extensive use of stonework and colors that are bold, yet complimentary. Classic
forms are often introduced to add a touch of casual luxury known as Mountain Elegance. The mouldings are hearty and combine simple lines with ornate profiles. When building or remodeling a home of this style, consider using pine, fir,
hickory, oak, hemlock, alder, cherry, walnut and poplar.
