Northern California Custom Home

Northern California Custom Home
Sonora, CA4,498 Sq. Ft.

Project Summary:

This custom home planned for development in Sonora, California is a highly personalized version of our Oakridge 48’ Apartment Barn Kit. Farcorp Residential Design served as the architect for this project and our team provided the materials package for the final design. The main level features four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, a mechanical room, a laundry area, and a foyer with an elevator. Upstairs, an open-concept living, kitchen, and dining area with truss-adorned ceilings offers the ideal setting for family gatherings.

This heavy timber residence features several modifications to the original model, including a 12’ extension to the length of the structure and the implementation of a heavy timber roof system. The dormers and cupola were removed to create a traditional gabled roof while the shed roof on the left side was designed to wrap around the structure. The entrance boasts a custom covered entry with a heavy timber hammerbeam truss. Toward the back, you’ll find a two-story heavy timber deck cover with matching hammerbeam trusses and a circular fire pit area intended for outdoor entertaining.

Custom Features:

Apart from its rectangular design and elongated shed roof, this custom home is almost unrecognizable from our standard Oakridge model. The exterior features a custom heavy timber entryway and a two-story heavy timber deck cover in the rear. Instead of keeping the shed roof on one side of the structure, our clients opted for a wrap-around solution that adjoins the timber frame entryway and deck. Other custom features include its heavy timber roof system, a heavy timber deck framing upgrade, a heavy timber staircase package, and an open web floor system.
