Named for the three mountain peaks visible from this Utah property, the aesthetics of Three Falls means it merges well with the alpine surroundings while its key materials, including Abodo Vulcan Cladding, are chosen to withstand the dry Utah climate.

Dry alpine conditions are extremely challenging for exterior timber, and the low equilibrium moisture contact of Vulcan Cladding is designed to stand up to the changes in temperature and humidity found in the area.

Designed by local practice Lloyd Architects in Salt Lake City, Three Falls is a contemporary alpine lodge-style house that provides a well-appointed and comfortable family base for mountain adventures.

Abodo distributor partners, reSAWN TIMBER co., worked closely with Lloyd Architects to specify the right finish and fit.

Using Abodo Vulcan shiplap cladding in a Graphite tone alongside elements of natural stone, the home reflects its mountainous location, blending beautifully with the rocky alpine peaks, with copper gutters adding an element of shine to this natural palette of materials.

Created from thermally modified Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified New Zealand plantation pine, the eco-timber product is coated in Abodo Protector, a nourishing water borne finish that combines refined plant oils to penetrate into the surface of the timber and protect it from the elements.
