Main CabinTraditional Exterior, Seattle

Architecture by Bosworth Hoedemaker
Interior Design by Garret Cord Werner

This San Juan Islands retreat is based on the idea of camp. It provides places to come together as a family and ways of retreating into small personal spaces. A main house has four public spaces arranged along a central axis – the kitchen, dining room, living room, and den. Behind these more generous spaces are a fireplace inglenook, mud room, laundry, office, and bath. Other buildings in the compound include a master cabin, writer’s hut, guest cabin, barn, and picnic shelter. With the exception of the barn, the buildings are located along a contour of the sloped site and connected between and through the buildings by a continuous path.

    Thanks for taking the time to let me know; I Love the Design of this home and want to try the color scheme on a small cottage I have. I live in Mississippi and I don't think I've heard of that brand but I will google it and see what I can find. Would plans for this home be for sale? Thanks again.

    What Houzz contributors are saying:

    The hipped portion of this roof creates a covered porch area.

    A closer view of the main cabin reveals the outdoor porch that is a primary way of enjoying the distant water views. Full-height glass walls are eschewed in favor of something more traditional, with windows set in wood walls.

    Metal roofs are popular in the area (and other rural places) because they shed leaves and needles easily, last for decades – and look good.
