Shenandoah, Iowa Residence

Built to enjoy their retirement, this Iowa home showcases the beauty of timber framing while minimizing maintenance for its owners. Most of the exterior timbers, like the scissor truss above the garage and timber entry, are carefully placed under overhangs to minimize their exposure to the elements. The rest of the home uses a mixture of stone and cement board siding, both finishes selected for their longevity and resistance to intense temperatures.

More About This Home

The homeowners also wanted their post and beam home to capture views of the pond, woodland, and longtime campground area. Rooms on the south elevation, including the living room, dining room, and master suite, have an abundance of glass to expand their primary views. The windows also bring in natural light that highlights the oak timbers throughout this Midwest home.
