Big Horn Cabin​

Big Horn River, Montana

This cabin was the dream of a Washington fisherman who wanted a getaway on the banks of his favorite Montana river. The challenge was to design and build a cabin alongside the river while still respecting local residents and fellow fishermen. The design utilized a classic homestead form to blend into the natural environment. In addition, a Gambrel roof barn was built to provide necessary storage while adding strength to the historic feel of the site.

Project Highlights

  • Locally quarried stone deck for durability in the hot, dry summers and harsh snowy winters.
  • Wrap-around porch to provide shade in summer and move snow away from the house in winter.
  • Reclaimed barn siding, pre-weathered metal roof and earth tones add to the desired natural and historic character.
  • Gambrel roof barn conjures the feeling of age and agriculture.
  • Local river rock plinth and fireplace.
