No this is not a timber frame lodge, this is a mountain home in Colorado!
It may seem too early to be talking about mountainside living (near the slopes), but winter is on its way! Here in New England, the days are getting shorter and colder, and there is no doubt that fall is here. Fall is a great season that many of us in the north enjoy, but for some reason, it always seems like fall flies by faster than any season and the snow creeps up on us.
So for all of you snow lovers out there, now is the time to start thinking about your mountainside vacations. I'm willing to bet those of you who love winter sports have been thinking about your winter vacations since the last winter ended! If you've always thought about owning your own vacation home near the slopes, we hope this blog post will inspire you to build your own timber frame mountain home to enjoy. Our recommendation? Choose a mountainside location that is also near a lake, pond or another seasonal destination, that way, you can enjoy your vacation home all year long!
