In a community like Central Oregon, you expect to see the landscape dotted with country ski homes. Some of these homes are McMansion in size, built during the real estate boom, while others are the humble ski abodes of the past.

The Franks' Tumalo ski home falls into the later category. It retains its original A-frame mid-century architecture with grace and simple beauty. It helps that the home also sits on 10 acres of pristine land overlooking the Deschutes River with views of Mount Bachelor. The rustic home seems to be in perfect harmony with nature here.
