The off grid cabin (Western Catskills) was built in the 70’. Working with those bones, yet seeking its soul back… we aimed to anchor it further back in times – early 1800’ of the earliest property usage as a mill. The original wood mill showed its stone walls reminiscences in the brook, a stroll away bellow the cabin. The interior shape shift mood with a wall patina intended as a crude faux plaster who had endure times. The wood ceiling were sanded down to knock the varnish shine, they may white wash at a later phase. Antique screen doors set were used for closets & pantry, along with antique furniture. A mix of drop cloth canvas curtains, antique textiles & rugs help to insulate during the long winter, while owner’s pelts, skulls & local history artifacts collection set the cabin on its renewed time lapse …reminiscing the past in present time.
