IT’S NOT JUST ITS SHAPE THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
Take a close look at this cabin, called the Diamond Cabin, among the Pacific Northwest rainforests or you might just miss it. This cabin is fully covered in moss that it is almost blending in its surrounding greeneries. However, its unique structure makes it stand out. The cabin is built with a hexagonal pyramid roof as well as 16 triangular and trapezoidal skylights.
Aside from this, what makes it unique is that almost all of its interior and exterior materials were salvaged from dilapidated structures from the property itself. Its interiors were constructed from Douglas fir while its exteriors from hand-split cedar shakes. Not only is this cabin beautiful and cozy, it is also environmentally friendly.
Despite having only 93 sq. ft. in floor area and 22 ft. in height, this tiny cabin packs a punch. The hexagonal shape allows for a spacious interior as the walls are flared outwards at a 30-degree angle. Inside, a small yet comfortable living room and kitchen is available. A small ladder leads to a sleeping loft with gorgeous views of the surrounding area. The cabin also has a gas stove, sink, electricity, and an outdoor shower with on-demand hot water for a more comfortable stay.
Currently, the owners are thinking of renting out the cabins in the property including this Diamond Cabin.
“We like to make our structures do many – sometimes contradictory – things at the same time. We want them to look as though they grew in the environment, but they were also built to stand out,” says Witzling. “We want those who view them to think they look natural in their surroundings, yet at the same time, supernatural.”
