Dyna - Portage Bay
Dyna Contracting
Clean and simple define this 1200 square foot Portage Bay floating home. After living on the water for 10 years, the owner was familiar with the area’s history and concerned with environmental issues. With that in mind, she worked with Architect Ryan Mankoski of Ninebark Studios and Dyna to create a functional dwelling that honored its surroundings. The original 19th century log float was maintained as the foundation for the new home and some of the historic logs were salvaged and custom milled to create the distinctive interior wood paneling. The atrium space celebrates light and water with open and connected kitchen, living and dining areas. The bedroom, office and bathroom have a more intimate feel, like a waterside retreat. The rooftop and water-level decks extend and maximize the main living space. The materials for the home’s exterior include a mixture of structural steel and glass, and salvaged cedar blended with Cor ten steel panels. Locally milled reclaimed untreated cedar creates an environmentally sound rain and privacy screen.

This view shows the added built-in surrounding a flat screen tv. To accomplish necessary non-combustible surfaces surrounding the new wood-burning stove by Rais, I wrapped the right side of the cabinetry with stone tile. This little stove can heat an 1100 SF space.

This 1996 Stardust houseboat remodel was a large undertaking. We replaced the carpet with vinyl wood flooring to resist water, updated all the furniture, had the custom built in removed and put in a new custom entertainment center, and installed quite a bit of creative lighting. Although the palette is still neutral, the mix of dark and light neutrals allows the eye a direction to move. The countertop selection was beautiful and matched the palette. In the back of the photo you can see the captain's wheel to drive the boat! Photo by Johnny Stevens

The renovation involved adding a sleeping loft above the existing structure (which actually floats on huge logs). Because it's not an "official bedroom," this staircase by The Iron Shop is allowable. I "waterfalled" the countertops to wrap cabinet sides for a more interesting look. The existing rounded door to storage/laundry was refinished/refitted. Heated blue stone tile floors keep this kitchen cozy. Beams across the ceiling support the upper structure as does wood post in foreground. There are two sinks in this tiny galley kitchen. Kohler's "trough sink" sits below window in this view, creating a highly functional prep area adjacent to range top.
