Post and Beam
Innovation mixed with a strong aesthetic design make this 3,800-square-foot post-and-beam-style custom home a masterpiece. The roof, with its unique combination of heavy split shakes, accenting seamless metal roofing and areas of glass, is the first telltale sign that something fresh and innovative is happening here. Two styles of cedar siding and a large hand-fitted cedar post and beam that make up the exterior set a strong architectural tone that continues throughout the house. Inside, the hand-fitted river rock wood burning fireplace is complemented by ceramic tile and hardwood floors. In the kitchen, there is an expansive vaulted post and beam ceiling complete with an exposed cedar frame. Fine details such as skylights over the second floor office, a glass-roofed area over the deck facing the lake and granite countertops in the kitchen, bar and bathrooms finish the look while staying true to the architectural design theme. Wilderness Custom Homes is the premier residential home builder in the Cariboo; and this gorgeous home reflects that.

Contemporary and dramatic, this custom 4,500-square-foot post-and-beam-styled A-frame home draws all eyes to the magnificent view of the lake. The cedar siding, wood windows and natural rock work retaining walls add elements of nature that are echoed in the view from the back deck which faces the water. Inside, the living room with its huge vaulted ceiling and grand stone fireplace becomes a focal point itself, drawing all eyes back to the unobstructed lake view. The textured drywall finish and extensive use of wood mouldings reinforce the role of nature in the design and construction of this home, which is further emphasized by the timber frame, open construction interior stairs with glass railings that enhance the stunning vista. Wilderness Custom Homes’ dedication to quality standards and attention to detail is obvious in this astounding custom home in the Cariboo.
