Brown Cabin

Brown Cabin
Hornby Island BC
2013-2014
1200 SF


This new 1200 square foot cabin was built across the yard from an existing stacked log cabin.  A courtyard was created in the open clearing between the two cabins, with a new minimal wood shed acting as third “wall". All roof slopes on the new shed and cabin match the slope of the existing cabin.  All new finishes are intentionally rough. The new cabin is stuccoed with the same deep texture as the existing cabin, disguising their May-September romance.  Hornby-Island-curves and hand-hewn finishes make the new cabin comfortable and low-key, adding an instant patina to this family compound designed for year-round island living.
