Gravitas is an independent log and timber frame design firm working with individuals, builders, dealers, and manufactures in the industry all across the country. Our varied body of work covers the spectrum from high mountain to desert properties. Clients and industry professionals recognize Gravitas for, innovative design, creative solutions, and attention to our customer’s needs. Gravitas is pushing the boundaries and leading the way in mountain-modern style homes that integrate contemporary lines with traditional log and timber materials.

Our typical process will take you through the design and construction documents for your home. We start with gathering all the information you have collected including magazine tear outs, your “wants and needs list”, and any sketches and ideas that you have that will help us along the way. Through a series of preliminary designs we will refine the design until it meets your goals. From start to finish we work in 3D so you can experience your home virtually during our interactive online design meetings and have a complete understanding of forms and spatial relationships in your home.

As an independent firm with no product to sell you can be assured that our focus and attention is on you as a client and your needs through the design of your dream home. With a complete set of construction documents in hand prior to selecting a manufacturer you will be able to gather the most competitive bids for your log and timber frame package from the industry’s most talented suppliers. Our drawings come complete with log and pole schedules and 3D views of all log components so you can be assured all of the estimates you receive from the manufacturers are based on the same materials.

The Gravitas team includes dedicated and talented designers with professional degrees of Architecture. Our experience and education combines many years of commercial and custom home designs. Our portfolio includes multiple award winning designs that have been featured in national magazines such as Log Home Living and Timber Home Living. Our clients are diverse so we have designed custom residences in 32 states, with international projects in China, Poland, Turkey, Norway, Canada, and Japan. If we don’t have a project in your state our country, let’s talk, we love new markets.

A goal of our work is to highlight the simplicity of materials, the graceful path of the sun, the comfort of the users, and their movement in and through each space. Our final built homes are the individual expression of each of our unique clients. Our reward is your enjoyment and the satisfaction of living in your home for many years to come.
