In 1987, a couple bought a piece of lakefront property with plans to build their dream family retreat. After 33 years, their dream was finally realized. The family had built several projects on the existing property over the years including a bunkie, firepit, slack lines, bike trails, and a hammock zone, so to accommodate the new construction, they bought a neighboring lot. The cabin is built on steel ground screws to minimize impact on the land and trees. A blackened timber facade fades into the forest scenery while the interior's natural wood lining creates a bright, minimal atmosphere and modern, camp-like vibes. To showcase the lake views, the bedrooms are located on the ground floor and the main living area has been placed on the upper level. The linear space expands out to a covered terrace in the forest to the east and a an open-air deck overlooking the water to the west.
