Bitterroot Timber Frames and Millwork

When a great room is centered around windows that perfectly frame mountain views and walls are lined with swirls of weathered pine or the patina of aged barn wood, who needs artwork? The organic materials and the picturesque scenery are the décor, while the timber frame structure, perhaps built from reclaimed lumber, references the landscape outdoors.

With the “old world quality and modern day craftsmanship,” Bitterroot Timber Frames is a company that specializes in developing these type of stunning ambiences. From a small handcrafted cabin to a large Western compound or resort home, the company designs and builds homes that express the beauty of wood.

“Bitterroot Timber Frames is committed to design excellence, which is to say that we strive for thoughtful and appropriate response to our client’s site, their lifestyle and budget,” said owner Brett Mauri. “We prefer to use locally available materials, historically indigenous to the region we are building in, simply because it makes sense economically and in terms of that materials’ performance following installation in our homes.”

But if materials aren’t available locally or if a client is looking for a specific variety of wood, the company also purchases and sells unique reclaimed materials from across the globe, including 200-year-old oak timbers and hand-hewn siding and old redwoods from local water pipelines built to serve historic mining operations in Montana. And when called to produce a contemporary architectural expression, the company has access to mills specializing in production of the “highest quality of coastal timber available in North America,” said Mauri.

Bitterroot Timber Frames also fabricates a line of custom doors, millworks and architectural antiquities and specialize in the construction of handcrafted timber trusses using traditional mortise and tenon joinery. Craftsmen can finish and preassemble complex trusses and frames at their facility located in Stevensville, Mont., and then these components can be shipped to locations across the United States.

The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado emulates the West’s national park lodges, such as those in Yosemite, Yellowstone and Glacier. The style is called “parkitecture.” A variety of materials, including hewn logs, timbers, stone and other indigenous natural materials, was used in its construction. The lobby is a great room arranged around a three-story moss rock fireplace.

“The idea is to bring the outside in and incorporate nature into the luxury of the hotel experience,” said Kristin Yantis, the hotel’s public relations director. The result is an impressive centerpiece for Bachelor Gulch village.

With the Beaver Creek base village to the east and Arrowhead base village to the west, Bachelor Gulch is the final phase of the area’s village-to-village ski experience. The isolated community was connected to Beaver Creek Ski Resort when the Bachelor Gulch high-speed quad lift began running in 1996. It is a “bedroom community” for skiers, with homes that have ski-in, ski-out access.

The bachelors who gave the Gulch its name when they settled the area in the early 1900s wouldn’t recognize the place today. Many of them were miners who had tuberculosis and were looking for a better way of life when the Homestead Act of 1862 made it possible for them to purchase land.
