Lake Country Cabin

This design-build project tucks a seasonal cabin into the forest with views of two lakes. As the clients are third-generation inhabitants, keeping existing trees and impacting the site as little as necessary were very important.

To minimize the impact of construction traffic, the cabin was designed with a frost-protected shallow foundation without a concrete footing or slab.

A narrow, efficient layout creates comfortable light-filled spaces and keeps you connected to the woods. Two bedrooms downstairs open onto the kitchen and living area. A spacious upstairs bedroom opens onto a skylit-loft and vaulted living room. The favorite room is a screened porch with panoramic views of two lakes.
