BRULE RIVER CABIN

This cabin, that overlooks the historic Brule River in Northwest Wisconsin, was originally constructed in the 1920’s. It was designed to sit snuggly in the woods, with a shingle sided rambling first floor consisting of a large living room surrounded by four bedrooms, and log framed screened porches. The current owners, needing more sleeping space for a growing extended family, decided to expand into the unfinished attic. To obtain sufficient headroom, three large dormers were punched through the low-sloped hipped roof, matching an existing dormer. This added enough space to carefully carve out three bedrooms and a bathroom – one for each dormer. It is all finished with pine paneling and fir flooring, to match the original cabin features. Once the shingles weather, it will be hard to tell the new from the old.
