Wood And Rock House Plans – Nature’s Harmony
Wood and stone have always made up a perfect combination, both from an aesthetical and practical point of view. They both come from nature, are resources still found in abundance and joining them completes the outer look of a house, bringing it closer to nature. The wood-stone tandem inspires warmth, friendship and originality and personalizes a home, whether we are talking about a vacation getaway or a year-round family home. Below are several plans to inspire you in making the right choice:
The first example is a house mostly built from wood logs and which, at a first sight, may take the air of a rustic dwelling. But the imposing façade, opened to the outside through large windows, speaks of a house with modern accents, built to fit the contemporary times. The ground floor features a kitchen which opens into a living room, a bathroom and a study. The first floor houses three bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious hallway. The semi-basement takes in a garage, a summer kitchen and a wine cellar. The footing is made of stone, the ground floor is built from wood logs while the attic is built on a sandwich like structure.
The second plan is a house mostly built from wood and raised on a stone base. One of the two sides features a living, a dining room, the kitchen and a hallway, while the other one is dedicated to the sleeping area. The staircase was built in the hallway linking the two sides. The house was conceived around the front terrace and is oriented towards the landscape and faces south, designers say. The stone semi-basement and the terrace, the wood log floors and the ceramic tile roof give the house a pleasant visual layering and a more dynamic final look.
The third example is an American style rustic house, with two floors, spreading on 226 square meters. The house harmoniously blends wood and stone for a final well-balanced traditional look. Beyond the wood-stone combination, the eye is caught by the screened veranda built on top of the stone wall. A second covered porch in the back invites to a place of full intimacy and tranquility. The house features a spacious living room which also incorporates the kitchen, the dining and other spaces dedicated to family, four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
