Building a Mountain Lodge-Style Custom Home

Do you dream of coming home each day to a mountain lodge-style home with picturesque windows, rustic design elements, and warm finishes that make you feel like you’re surrounded by alpine scenery even though you live in the heart of Texas? If so, a custom, modernized mountain lodge home is for you!

Read on to learn everything you need to know about this architectural style before meeting with our custom home builders to begin your design.

What Is a Mountain Lodge-Style Home?

Mountain architecture features bold, natural materials that look like they came straight from the forest. Mountain lodge-style homes date back to the late 1800s as settlers began exploring mountainous regions of the United States, building camps in the untamed wilderness with whatever materials they could forage for, like wooden logs.

Today, lodges remain a staple in mountain towns and urban valleys alike because of the unique architecture that provides a warm, welcoming feel with a strong, rugged aesthetic, built to stand strong against adverse weather events.

Interior Mountain Lodge-Style Home Elements

The inside of a mountain lodge allows you to embrace natural elements in a cozy, inviting setting. A few primary features of mountain lodge-style interior design include the following:

  • Functional rooms: Mountain lodge-style homes often feature practical spaces, like mud rooms, large open living spaces, private detached bedrooms, and more to combine functionality with style.
  • Exposed support elements: You’ll likely find large, exposed columns, rafters, beams, and other supporting elements. Traditionally, these components helped the home stand up against severe climates in the mountains, but now they serve as indoor design features.
  • Natural decor: Depending on your style preferences, you can include natural design elements, like hardwood floors, furs, oil paintings, antlers, and more.

Exterior Mountain Lodge-Style Architecture

The outdoor living space of a mountain lodge home typically looks like the building magically appeared in the wilderness without disturbing the environment. You’ll find a rugged-style exterior of the building surrounded by organic landscaping that makes the home look like another aspect of nature. A few common components include the following:

  • Wood and stone materials on the exterior mimicking a log cabin
  • Angled high-pitch roofs
  • Large, covered porches
  • Wood or metal-framed windows
  • Carriage-style garage doors
  • Minimal, natural-looking landscaping
  • Native hardscaping
  • Stone driveways
  • Oversized mortar joints
