The Kootenay Ridge is a wonderful timber frame home plan for a sloped site which would accommodate a light filled walkout lower level. Featuring a 2 story covered deck and many view windows, it is a perfect home for a waterfront or ski resort home. A vaulted timber frame ceiling, featuring King post trusses with curved collar ties and a roof lantern, provides the kitchen, dining area, and living room with an airy, spacious light filled environment. These rooms lead out onto the upper story covered deck with its cozy fireplace providing a perfect place for enjoying dinner or for outdoor entertaining. A bathroom, mudroom, with entry from the outside, and a large walk-in pantry are also situated on this main level. The master bedroom, located on the lower level, features a sleeping area in a large bay window, a spacious walk in closet, and access to the lower covered deck. The lower walk out level also contains a second bedroom, a full bathroom, den, laundry room, and a large utility/storage room. A two car garage, with enough room for a spacious workshop, is attached to the home by a covered walkway.
