Larson Rabin Residence

The Larson Rabin Residence is a custom-built house situated in the scenic Deep Creek Lake region of Maryland. This project boasts a stunning custom built house made of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) walls and roof, with Glue-Laminated (Glulam) columns and beams. The construction of this house was done in collaboration with experienced architects, engineers, and builders, with a keen eye for detail and sustainability.

The design of the Larson Rabin Residence incorporates the natural beauty of the surrounding environment, with large windows providing panoramic views of the lush green forests and serene lake. The house is built using sustainable and eco-friendly materials, making it an excellent example of modern construction practices. The use of CLT walls and roof provides excellent insulation, ensuring that the house is energy-efficient and comfortable throughout the year.

The Larson Rabin Residence is a unique and modern home that showcases the versatility and beauty of CLT and Glulam construction. The project serves as a prime example of sustainable building practices, utilizing natural materials and environmentally conscious design choices. This custom-built house is not only a beautiful home but also a symbol of a new era in construction, where sustainability, durability, and elegance go hand in hand.
