Main Cabin

Architecture by Bosworth Hoedemaker
Interior Design by Garret Cord Werner

This San Juan Islands retreat is based on the idea of camp. It provides places to come together as a family and ways of retreating into small personal spaces. A main house has four public spaces arranged along a central axis – the kitchen, dining room, living room, and den. Behind these more generous spaces are a fireplace inglenook, mud room, laundry, office, and bath. Other buildings in the compound include a master cabin, writer’s hut, guest cabin, barn, and picnic shelter. With the exception of the barn, the buildings are located along a contour of the sloped site and connected between and through the buildings by a continuous path.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bright white walls are given some character by horizontal planks here.
Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: San Juan Islands Retreat
The property owner likes to entertain and host work retreats at the house. "Guest rooms and sleeping areas are scattered among the buildings, which makes for camp-like but comfortable accommodations," Hoedemaker says. The property sleeps approximately 10.
Lisa Frederick added this to Clean Start: Fresh-Faced White Planking
Tall ceilings and plank-clad walls add a cathedral-like serenity to this living and dining area.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Shiplap
Shiplap panels simply overlap from board to board, relying on a rabbet cut at the end the boards that allows them to lie flush.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Transom
A room with tall ceilings can easily handle an oversize transom window, which will let in light and keep the open feel of the room.
