the lodge

A family lodge on a northern Minnesota lake combines timber frame, post and beam, and conventional framing for permanence, material honesty and richness, and remarkable craft. Much larger than it appears, at 6500 s.f., it is oriented perpendicular to lakeside for privacy, charm, and reduced scale. It accommodates 5 families in separate suites and many grandchildren in a long bridge, fit with rows of individual, private bunks.
