I came across the website of Kurtwood Farms the other day while doing some random googling and my heart just about burst. I love city life, but to have all of this space, to have as many animals as I wanted (and not break any laws like I am now) and to have an honest-to-gawd cabin to decorate would be a dream come true. Kurtwood Farms is located on Vashon Island near Seattle and has everything, a creamery, pond, bullpen, cheese cave, wood fired oven, milking parlor, cookhouse...and this log house. It is breathtaking in all its original and rustic glory.
Roughing it??? Far from it! This home has got to be the fanciest rustic cabin I think I have ever seen. It has everything a cabin typically has - reclaimed wood, stone, floors that look like they've been there 100 years, exposed beams, a place to BBQ....but this is anything but typical. This beauty was designed by Kelly & Stone Architects and takes rustic living to a whole new level.
What was once a summer home built in the 8os in South Bohemia, Czech Republic is now an updated and completed renovated primary residence for a young family. The main goal of the house's redesign was to keep its simple form and to create a connection between the nature outside and the interior. Yes it is simple but it is really beautiful. Look at that view from the upstairs desk area. Magical. By B² Architecture, photos by Alexandra Timpau.
You know your friends would be bugging you constantly to spend boring winter weekends at your cabin if this was yours. And in the summer? Absolutely! Another perfectly executed home by _naturehumaine. Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.
