Lodge Style House Plans

The Lodge style house plan, also referred to as Northwest style, blends architectural lines and natural materials with its environment. Rustic lodge homes are often constructed of wood, stone and timber cross beams and resemble a timber frame house plan. Mountain Lodge style home designs are reminiscent of the grand lodges of the national parks, with their log and timber construction, exposed beams, high ceilings and tall picturesque windows. 

A Lodge style house is all about the creature comforts of an ideal getaway to the mountains or lake with friends and family, whether it’s your primary residence or vacation home. The exterior melds perfectly into the natural environment while inside the house, vaulted ceilings and large, exposed timber beams are prominently featured. Outdoor living spaces are incorporated into the design to allow for relaxation and entertainment. Covered porches or decks on the main floor or second story can easily be incorporated to provide outdoor time in all types of weather. Regardless of the additional features and details, the Lodge style house should complement its natural setting as if it has been there for generations.
