Each and every board that went into the cabin had to be carried over the river and up the hill. We made thoughtful choices about the size of the cabin and the material selections. The hemlock timber trusses were transported in pieces and assembled on site. The trusses support a roof made of structural insulated panels (SIPs) an efficient combination of both structure and insulation. The roof supports a snow load of 70 pounds per square foot.
The floors, spiral stair, interior doors and claw foot tub are salvaged.
The same material, v-grove pine, was used on both the ceiling and walls. We varied the finish to differentiate walls from ceiling.
