Modern Timber Frame Homes

Riverbend’s modern timber frame homes are inspired by the architectural stylings of Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and Joseph Eichler. In this distinctive home style, Riverbend Timber Framing blends their tradition of high-quality timber craftsmanship with the forward-thinking designs of modern architecture. The stunning result creates a natural warmth and character for your home.

Modern Timber Home Plans

The Moderns™ floor plan series by Riverbend incorporates some of the most forward-thinking principles of modern design and combines them with the classic sophistication of a timber frame home. This combination provides owners with the best of both worlds. Each of the custom homes in The Moderns™ collection showcases design elements that seamlessly blend Riverbend’s timber framing with modern architectural styling. Exterior timber bents support extended roofs, while interior timbers help open shared spaces where light floods in from large windows.

Modern Timber Home Design Considerations

Modern home designs often include large windows and walls of glass to highlight the beauty of nature, so we will work with you to orient the house to take advantage of the best views on your property. If you build in a neighborhood where houses are close together, we will consider window placement and other ways to incorporate privacy to your home. In addition, our modern timber homes are designed with sustainability and efficiency in mind. However, it’s a good idea to consider your climate before finalizing a design. In areas that are extremely cold, you may want to forgo the retro carport that many include in modern style homes for an enclosed garage. And, heavy snow loads may affect the flat roof design found on many modern style homes. Riverbend works with you to custom design your home to meet all your needs as well as any jurisdictional requirements. In fact, every home we design is stamped by a third-party engineer licensed for your build location.
