An unprecedented number of architects are providing designs for new and remodeled cabins on behalf of cabin owners. Whether rustic, cottage style or modern designs, cabins of distinctive character are now gracing lakeshores, riverbanks and mountainsides. What are architects offering these retreat owners that has brought their services into favor?
Cabin owners have great freedom as to with whom and how their cabin design is realized. Laws in most states do not mandate designs by an architect, engineer or draftsman. Your lumberyard and contractor will prefer a detailed drawing and your building permit process may mandate the same, but you are free to draw this yourself or to buy detailed drawings from a magazine.
What architects have to offer is added value and an enhancement of the cabin experience through design. By way of their unique training they synthesize the many forces, factors, and functions common to cabin projects in the creation of a tailored solution to each situation. Such as:
– Each site is unique with particular topography, views, vegetation, and access. Client budgets vary significantly and a design solution merges these two notable variables.
Working with an architect can make any trip to the cabin be a restorative experience. Meet the SALA Architects team and discover a wide array of cabin possibilities. We will be sharing some of our favorite designs of years past and available to answer questions about possible cabin futures at the 2023 Lake Home and Cabin Show in Minneapolis.
Drop by the SALA booth #707 at the Minneapolis Convention Center to explore our project boards, models and to ask all things cabin with our professional architects. Tell us about your site, dreams and, who knows, we just might get out our sketchbook!
