Dan Joseph Architects did the design work so they would be your best bet for design. This cabin is great but the plans would need to be altered as this was a custom design for Owner. The cost of this cabin ranged around 500-600 per sq foot.

Corten Steel, rusts to a certain point and then stops but overall a great product. Try Bridger Steel http://bridgersteel.com/

Concerns over freezing - Any concerns with the support piers when the pond freezes - how was this handled? I am interested in a similar project in Canada. Thanks F. Vita

We built the pond as well, so there is a wall behind reclaimed wood that is very well waterproofed...In your case if you are building a deck over an exisiting pond the answer is yes and it is here too...the ice might ruin the wood but the concrete behind is plenty secure... Keep in mind that you have a depth in the pond that you can go with piers to avoid freezing so the only issue is to make sure surface of actual pier has room to accept ice and freeze/thaw conditions..hopet his helps. In the first winter we had to replace the barnwood skirt as the ice tore it off but this was due to fluctuating water levels as much as the ice....as long as the ice can go up it will move up the secured pier.

Thank you for providing the cost based on per sq. ft. My question is how many sq foot is this cabin? This will give me an idea how big a cabin we should be targeting for.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This swim-up cabin is surrounded by a man-made pond. The owners can dip into it right off the deck, and it's also stocked with trout for fishing. I spoke with home builder Todd Thesing of Highline Partners, who explained that his group completed extensive studies regarding pond levels and evaporation rates before construction, and that the house sits on its own foundation that is waterproof and designed to handle a catastrophic water situation. We'll be seeing more of this house in a future Houzz Tour feature. More:19 Spectacular Pools Near and FarHow to Make Your Home's Pool Special
Of course, the family also enjoys the pond for recreation and the beautiful view. They can dive right in off the dock for swims, and it is stocked with trout for off-the-deck fishing.
