Northwest architecture is often associated with rural, get-away type dwellings; unfortunately the idea of a dwelling set within nature brings quite a bit of baggage to the design table. While the northwest is one of the most recent explorations on the map, and lacks a history (comparatively), we still find the proliferation of log cabins and faux Cape Cod cottages here. Today’s blog, on this crisp November 1st morning, focuses on several rural projects: cabins, retreats, ski-lodges, call them what you like. These projects are great examples of thinking, designing and building rural dwellings in our present time with current materials and methods.
