Main Lounge, Timberline Lodge - click on photo for larger image.
This is the comfortable main lounge, located on the 1st floor of the head house. The furniture is original, it was custom built for the Lodge in a WPA shop in Portland and shipped up to the Lodge. This photo is a bit confusing as it was taken at the back of the room, facing south. The front door of the Lodge is on the far side of the fireplace. The east wing and the Cascade Dining Room is to the left in this photo, to the right is the west wing guest rooms. The wood floors are Oregon white oak. If you click on the image and get the enlarged version you will notice what looks like an alligator skin pattern in the beam above the fireplace. Those patterns are blade marks left by the broadaxe and adz (adze) that were used to cut the beam.
