Calistoga, California Creekside Cabin

Creekside cabin

A 1920s shingled creekside cabin redesigned by architect Amy A. Alper.


“The architect designed a new double-height living room addition to wrap the original exterior. Weathered shingles and period windows remain — when open, kitchen and living room are connected. New materials contrast with the old; reclaimed beams mediate between them, and visually echo the surrounding woods. Window walls showcase views to the swirling waters below.”

    This is gorgeous. How many square feet?

  4. I like how you’ve labeled what’s in the drawers, or so it appears. This is a gorgeous setting, and with a son and hubby both over 6 feet tall, that height really adds to the spacious feeling.

    Sign me up! It doesn’t compromise on what I consider to be “deal breakers”. I’m anxious to learn more about the off the grid specs.
