Writer’s Cabin

The Lake George Cabin achieves its shape by adjusting to a number of obstacles and opportunities: neighbors to the east, an access road to the west, beautiful views into the woods to the north, and tree filtered daylight from the south. A large southern glass entrance connects the cabin to the main house on the property and allows afternoon daylight inside. A deep overhang protects the interior from the harsh summer sun and shelters a small porch from the rain. The cabin’s amenities – a day bed, a fold-down bunkbed and a kitchenette – are carved away from the windowless western facade which provides privacy from the road. A large window in the bedroom frames views of the mountains in the distance.
