Old Fort Cabin Featured in Book

Old Fort Cabin Book

Our Old Fort Cabin is featured in a brand new book called The Family Cabin by Dale Mulfinger. The book is a 300-page collection of cabins throughout North America and stories from the families that live in them. We and our clients are happy to be chosen to be part of the book. It is available from Taunton Press or can be ordered on Amazon.

Old Fort Cabin
The homeowners of this cabin are passionate about fly-fishing, so when they found property with a designated trout stream, it was a natural fit. We developed a design that allows them to experience both views and sounds of the creek and a relaxed style for the cabin – a counterpoint to their full-time residence.
The land around the cabin created significant challenges. Remote and steep land limited access for larger vehicles and staging areas for the contractor. We developed an efficient footprint and space planning to fit the land and minimize foundation and roof costs. The project uses an efficient thermal envelope and mechanical systems to achieve Designed to Earn Energy-Star 3.0.
