Hillsboro, Oregon

Nestled near wine country, this home is a collaboration of designer and builder. When the couple sat down one Sunday afternoon to design their forever home, they knew exactly what they wanted –a blend of rustic barn with Timberline Lodge influences – to age-in-place and enjoy the view.


  • Site itself posed difficulties and required road, septic, well, power and other utilities.
  • The intersection of new wood with reclaimed wood, stone and steel required careful coordination throughout the build process to achieve the desired look.
  • Using barn wood siding was both labor intensive and time consuming – wood needed to be cleaned, dried, and applied to the structure installed on vented rain screen.


  • The home was made to look like timber frame construction but is conventionally framed to gain better thermal performance. 
  • The vaulted main roof structure is framed to allow air flow throughout assembly for roof life durability and the lower section is sealed with closed-cell foam for interior air sealing and heating and cooling comfort.
  • To save on cost, the great room ceiling is fence-grade cedar siding stained to match the reclaimed wood.
  • Many interior beams are built from smaller pieces of wood to look like heavy timber. Extra labor and care were required to achieve the look, but it was worth it to save a limited resource such as reclaimed, heavy timber.





  • “Mountainwood Homes exceeded my expectations. The quality of the work is excellent and others who have seen it have been very impressed. Remodels are tough and the folks at Mountainwood made it as painless as possible; they were a delight to work with.”

  • “Everyone from Mountainwood was very professional and did their best to make sure we were pleased every step of the way. They worked really hard to be respectful of our space and keep things running on schedule even though we kept adding new projects. Heather was incredible in guiding our vision with her design expertise. Steve Hunt – the nicest man in the world – was incredibly patient with us and went out of his way to make sure things were just right. We really appreciated Adam’s perfectionism with our fireplace – it turned out great! Every single person from Mountainwood was extremely friendly and we enjoyed having them in our home. Thank you!”

He was very knowledgeable and professional, He was able to handle the changes in the schedule, calm me down when things didn't always go the way it was planned, and made the remodel an easier process than I expected. Also, Greg is a great person: kind, respectful, an all-around good guy. I consider him to be a friend of mine.”
