Enjoy “The Story Behind” the recent addition to Woodhouse’s collection of pre-designed floor plans: the Cascade.

The dream of this Woodhouse timber frame client was an expansive vacation home along the shores of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes of New York, which the owner could rent the home on VRBO to get a quick return on his investment and enjoy the home between rentals. With a modern design, industrial style post-and-beam joinery, and abundant sleeping space enough for several families, Woodhouse saw that a new design was needed to fulfill his dream. Take a video tour of this Cascade timber frame home.

Working with Woodhouse’s design team they defined their dream:

  • expansive open concept great room
  • wide lake views and access to a large deck
  • master bedroom with  en suite bathroom and soaking tub  with a view of the lake
  • secondary bedroom with en suite bathroom
  • custom made timber frame bunks for the children’s room above the two-door garage.

The lot sloped down to the lake, so they wanted a fully finished basement with space for another two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchenette, and TV lounge. When you walk out from the lake-facing deck or basement you take steps down to a stone viewing platform with a firepit for evening gatherings On a lower level  their dock on the lake creates easy access for boats, water play, and swimming.
