Orondo on the Lake
This home is located on the Columbia River, and find it very interesting how many people that view our photo albums know exactly where this house as it so stands out as a timber frame home from across the river.

A young family from Petersburg, Alaska with three children visited the Seattle Home Show to select a timber frame company and we were so excited to work with them. As always, we like to visit the site, so flight tickets and a B&B and we were on our way to develop this beautiful full timber frame from a book of pictures and listening to their ideas. At the end of the week, the frame was up and all the wall panels for 3500 square feet of house plus two car garage.
