Hood Canal Cabin

Featured in August 2007 Sunset Magazine.


Located on a southwest-facing low-bank waterfront site on the west side of the Hood Canal, this vacation cabin is designed to accommodate two families.  The adult bedroom suites bracket the other three spaces: a main living room, a screened porch, and a kid's bunkroom.  The shed roof slopes up from the water providing shelter from the sun during the summer and rain during the winter.  All five spaces have lofts looking back into the forest.  Exterior materials include cedar shingles, cedar-faced plywood, and metal roofing. Interior materials include concrete, cork and carpet flooring, along with naturally finished plywood walls and ceilings.  The general contractor was SeaHome Services.

Completed summer 2005.
