This great room can easily accommodate a crowd, what with its open kitchen, formal dining space and nearby sitting area. Wood paneling overhead draws the eye to the mountain views and helps the modern interior feel a little more connected to the wilderness.

Expansive windows showcase the lake views, while accordion doors create a seamless indoor/outdoor living experience. Modern finishes create a sense of luxury in the wilderness.

Elevating the cabin allowed for unobstructed views downslope and to the mountains beyond, transforming a modest living space from an ordinary room to a viewing platform that extends from inside to out.
This family wanted a natural, wilderness-style backyard complete with natural stone fire pit, a spa, a freeform swimming pool and waterfall. Their backyard now looks like a mountain resort, complete with deer grazing on the hill. The multi-level waterfall splits into several spillways as it cascades toward the swimming pool. A cast concrete bridge stamped to look like wood planks crosses over the lap pool. Colorful planting pockets soften the hardscaped areas.
