Big Horn Cabin,
Big Horn River, MT

The Big Horn fishing cabin was the dream of a Washington resident who wanted a get-away on the banks of his favorite river. The challenge was to design and build a cabin alongside the river while respecting the local residents and fellow fishermen. The design utilized a classic homestead form, reclaimed barn siding and locally quarried stone to blend into the natural environment. In addition to the cabin a gambrel roof barn was built to provide the necessary storage while adding strength to the historic feel of the site.
