Modern Mountain Cabin Methow Valley

1350 SF

Located near Mazama in the Methow Valley, the Ulrich Lane Cabin sits on the valley floor at the edge of pasture land and enjoys splendid views of the surrounding mountains. A relatively small (1,350 square feet) and simple structure, its materials and detailing are inspired by the colors and textures of the native vegetation surrounding it. The roof slopes of the main house and the garage oppose each other, creating an interesting wing-like effect at the intersection between the two. The larger mass of the house is divided into two weathered steel-wrapped "boxes," containing the master bedroom and bath in one and a guest bedroom and bath in the other. These boxes are separated by the glassy, open living/dining/kitchen space. This main space, sited so that its view to the north centers on Goat Peak, has large patio doors that open out onto patios to the north and south.
