LO­CATED ON THE SHORES OF LAKE ERIE, Rhea and David Sylvesters’ hy­brid tim­ber home is ori­ented to en­joy sweep­ing views, with a hor­i­zon­tal ex­te­rior punc­tu­ated by var­ied rooflines and a wel­com­ing en­try­way. Oakbridge Tim­ber Fram­ing de­signed and cut the frame, whose timbers are white oak ex­cept for the Dou­glas fir curved bottom beam of the truss sup­port­ing the en­try porch roof. Other stand­out fea­tures in­clude a 2-story stone fire­place in the great room as well as ham­mer­beam trusses that jux­ta­pose with the stag­gered wall of win­dows, cre­ated to frame strik­ing views of the lake.
