Morningstar in Wyoming
This is a Morningstar 3236 with an optional South tower and North dormer. It is located in Wyoming, right on the line of the August, 2017 full solar eclipse!
Another option on this house was the heavy timber lower South front. Although this can be done with concrete, many homeowners prefer the heavy timber option for the thermal properties and appearance of the Southern yellow pine timbers.

On the lower level and first floors are complete. On the right, the guys "top out" the house by adding the final piece of the wall kit. More that in an Enertia home, even the gable walls are solid timber construction. This is part of what makes it so strong and efficient.
