Old Tahoe Architecture & Mountain Architects: A Spacious Log Home With Abundant Character

MERIDIAN, ID--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - Mountain Architects' newest log home design, the Idlewild, is inspired by Old Tahoe architecture, a style that represents the exquisite beauty of Lake Tahoe as well as the peacefulness of the wilderness surrounding it. Known for its rambling design features, Old Tahoe architecture blends harmoniously with its environment, one intertwined with the granite cliffs admired by many. With the introduction of the Idlewild, Mountain Architects has captured the essence of this unique style and created a spacious home with an intimate feel and abundant character.

The rambling charm of Old Tahoe architecture makes it possible to build this dream home as one's budget permits. Start by building the main house with the two bedrooms upstairs. When ready, add the garage, luxurious master suite, and upstairs guest room.

As designed, the estimated turnkey cost of the Idlewild is $1,175,000. This cost estimate contemplates all materials and labor included in the design and construction of the home, from foundation excavation to completion. With Mountain Architects, you can customize the Idlewild (and every design featured in their Floor Plan Gallery) to fit your build site, architectural taste and budget. In addition, you can work with Mountain Architects to redesign the Idlewild as a Mountain Accent™ home combining custom log components with conventional stick framing. The Idlewild, redesigned as a Mountain Accent home, turnkeys at approximately $850,000. View the Idlewild log home floor plan and design options.
