Rustic Wisconsin Cabin

Architect Michaela Mahady, Partner with SALA Architects in Stillwater, Minnesota, designed this welcoming Northern Wisconsin Cabin. The design inspiration came from the historic buildings found in our National Parks. We wanted to use a mix of wood siding including waving siding, dark natural stain colors, dry-laid stone and dramatic roof lines caped in red.
