Eagle Harbor CabinRustic Dining Room, Seattle

The Eagle Harbor Cabin is located on a wooded waterfront property on Lake Superior, at the northerly edge of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, about 300 miles northeast of Minneapolis.
The wooded 3-acre site features the rocky shoreline of Lake Superior, a lake that sometimes behaves like the ocean. The 2,000 SF cabin cantilevers out toward the water, with a 40-ft. long glass wall facing the spectacular beauty of the lake. The cabin is composed of two simple volumes: a large open living/dining/kitchen space with an open timber ceiling structure and a 2-story “bedroom tower,” with the kids’ bedroom on the ground floor and the parents’ bedroom stacked above.
The interior spaces are wood paneled, with exposed framing in the ceiling. The cabinets use PLYBOO, a FSC-certified bamboo product, with mahogany end panels. The use of mahogany is repeated in the custom mahogany/steel curvilinear dining table and in the custom mahogany coffee table. The cabin has a simple, elemental quality that is enhanced by custom touches such as the curvilinear maple entry screen and the custom furniture pieces. The cabin utilizes native Michigan hardwoods such as maple and birch. The exterior of the cabin is clad in corrugated metal siding, offset by the tall fireplace mass of Montana ledgestone at the east end.
The house has a number of sustainable or “green” building features, including 2x8 construction (40% greater insulation value); generous glass areas to provide natural lighting and ventilation; large overhangs for sun and snow protection; and metal siding for maximum durability. Sustainable interior finish materials include bamboo/plywood cabinets, linoleum floors, locally-grown maple flooring and birch paneling, and low-VOC paints.

    Well, there are curvilinear steel lighting bars suspended over the dining table and kitchen island. Each lighting bar has sockets for a number of hanging pendant light fixtures by Bruck. I designed the lighting bars and they were made at a steel fabrication shop in Seattle.

    What type of wood are the floors?
  • PRO
    FINNE Architects
    Since it is a cabin, we used a locally-sourced low-grade Michigan white maple for the floors.

    Thanks for your kind words about this project. The hanging lights over the table are glass pendant lights from BRUCK; the fixture is called CIRO. I designed the curvilinear steel hanging bar, and it was made by a steel shop in Seattle.

Bugs are an element in the woods, which is why you don't see large decks here. "Instead of adding decks where the family would be eaten alive, the main living space and its operable windows can serve as one large screened-in porch," Finne says. He sourced the wood from a mill down the road. The floors are native Michigan maple; the paneling, birch. Fir rafters across fir tongue and groove panels make up the ceiling.

John Hill added this to Contemporary Cabins in the WoodsJan 7, 2012

From inside, similarities with the previous examples are evident: generous glazing, sloping roof, lots of wood. The last two tie these cabins to Thoreau's Walden Pond abode, but the last is definitely a late 20th-century insulated-glass phenomenon.
