Natural Modern Cabin Design Olympic Peninsula

1500 SF

Located on a waterfront lake site on the Olympic Peninsula of Western Washington, this 1,500 square foot two bedroom cabin with a future planned detached garage and studio is carefully placed into the hillside of a very small building area that is limited by steep slope and rainfall amounts. A variance was obtained to build this house given its delicate site and a landscaping plan has been implemented to restore the site with native plantings which also helps with erosion from rainfall. The spine of the house is anchored into the hillside with an insulated concrete retaining wall. The bedrooms and great room area are oriented to capture views of the lake and mountains beyond.
