I am nearing completion in the design of a 2547 sf South Santiam Cabin to be located just above Sweet Home Oregon. The clients purchased a river front property and wanted to take advantage of the idyllic setting with a cabin style home including a loft, vaulted ceilings multiple bathrooms and an area for their dogs to be cleaned up prior to being allowed into the main house.
There is an open stairway leading from the great room to the loft area adding to that rustic cabin feel. Once up in the loft, there is a full bath, sitting area and two full size bedrooms. The view from the loft will give guests lucky enough to stay over a view of the river from the loft area while reclining or taking their morning coffee.
The full service kitchen is vaulted and open, with lots of cherry cabinets and granite counter tops. The view from the kitchen is either looking out over the river setting or up can check up the driveway when you are expecting guests. The large island with cabinets opening in both directions offers a great place to wake up with a cup of coffee or just chat with the hostess while dinner is being prepared.
The dining area opens onto a large deck so you can enjoy the view when the local weather is prohibitive; or when the weather is inviting, you can spend the day kicked back on the large deck, entertaining and enjoying food off the barbie with company.
The large Great room, not only has a great view of the river below the house, but on those cold winter days, There is a fireplace with a stone face rising the full height of the ceiling, so you can toast your buns on that cold rainy day in front of the crackling fire!
There is a nice sized office just past the powder room, where you can keep up on your day to day business, isolating the business world from the rest of the cabin. Just beyond the office, is the Master Suite, complete with full height cabinetry for storage as well as counter space for a wet bar and a large seating area where you can just escape the day to recline and hide from the world.
The Master bath is roomy enough to be fairly elegant yet give you privacy, even when sharing it with your significant other. There are double sinks, large shower with a seat. The toilet area is cordoned off for that added bit of privacy. Double sinks under mounted in a granite counter top set on cherry cabinets finish off the scene.
