Hart Cabin Remodel

This project was commissioned by an ambitious client with a specific vision. The original, existing cabin structure underwent an addition that included two expansions to the east and west. Once High Plains was contacted, we were tasked with the seemingly impossible goal of extracting the one room log cabin from its foundation and moving it 40 feet from the house to create a guest cabin. We lifted the cabin using a crane to leave the remaining foundation and two additions. We then constructed a new structure on the existing cabin footprint, added the two new "towers," one of which included a new garage addition.

The remodel was designed to incorporate high performance design techniques. The space is a mix of old and new, modern and traditional. The interior elements were largely driven by the owner who drew upon the local landscapes and western culture as well as inspiration from her international travels. To some, the design may seem eclectic and it is. It is both functional, to honor the use of light and energy, as well as playful. It's a space that brings people together while offering a retreat for quiet reflection. The juxtaposition of spaces, colors, materials and inspiration was the perfect expression of the owner and her needs.
