From conception to completion, we designed and built this home, utilizing an eclectic mix of naturally curved timbers, shou sugi ban finishes, and hand-forged, custom hardware from the preeminent blacksmith, Jake James. This guest home stands upon a prominent mountain lookout with commanding views of Lake Pend Oreille and local eagle nests.
HOUSE OF GOOD CHEER
A craftsman's take on the half-dovetail cabin, using delicate crooked wood and fragrant, hand-planed Port Orford cedar. Collin Beggs designed, built, and oversaw this home as a general contractor.
A structurally complex outdoor three-season seating area with a fireplace. Due to tight access between other buildings, Collin Beggs designed it so the Western Red Cedar roof could be lifted into place.
SMALL TIMBER FRAMES
A variety of smaller projects: a garden gate, decorative industrial support, an exhibit booth, entryways, signposts, an extended covered porch area, and so on.
