Boulder River Cabin

This contemporary cabin near Big Timber, Montana was designed as a family retreat. The house stretches out along the West Boulder River bank taking advantage of the views up and down the river. The linear nature of the design also takes advantage of passive solar opportunities with large overhangs and sun awnings. This cabin is designed for flexibility of use for either one couple or for a family retreat. The main house has 1150 square feet of fully ADA accessible living space and a 3-season porch facing the river. The house opens up to an additional loft space and a connected two story guest-pod with two bedrooms and a bath for when the guests arrive.
