West Michigan Cabanon
Completed 2012
96 s.f.

A simple but important project for anyone: Create a place of repose, a shelter with a connection to nature in the woods. This cabanon was built for someone who loves nature, but not camping. This small 8’-0” x 12’-0” structure sits comfortably in the woods and offers a place for intimate gatherings or the summer afternoon nap. It has no electricity, and is built using standard natural materials including a durable pine tar pitch finish. The cabanon was designed to be affordable and easy for a non-builder to construct. In communicating with the Owner, 3D images of details and measurements offered an easy way to visualize assembly and tabulate materials and finishes.
