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.
So much more than a pile of stones. The transformation of a ramshackle series of buildings into a minimalist, contemporary home is a thing of beauty while showing respect for place, materials and history. Rustic yet ultra modern the stone house in Scaiano, Switzerland by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects.
