Love the outdoors? Dreaming of the ultimate home away from home to relax, fish or otherwise decompress from your daily life? You will immediately want the Sol Duc Cabin. Located in Olympic Peninsula, WA, the cabin was specifically built for an avid fly fisherman.
Olson Kundig Architects was the principal firm for the design. It is a steel-clad, 355 sf cabin on stilts. Being near a river that floods on occasion, the decision to place the home on stilts was out of protection for the structure.
When the owner isn’t around, the cabin has full-length shutters to completely close up the cabin. Sleek and damn near indestructible. Looking at all the glass, the shutter design makes sense. Talk about a bad day to roll up on your one-of-a-kind fly fishing cabin and the windows are shattered.
The shutters can be manually closed, and were designed to mimic the closing of traditional barn doors.
Designed to be low maintenance, the cabin contains two levels. The bottom floor has the living areas and kitchen. The second floor is the sleeping loft. In this part of Washington, if you don’t have a deck, you’re not living. The Sol Duc Cabin has a cantilevered deck off the front.
Prepare to dream of the relaxing days you could have in this cabin.
Now, all I have do is hit the Powerball, and I’ll take one.
