Norway Cottage

A rustic, recycled boathouse/summer cottage off the northwest coast of Norway. This little custom gem replace an original structure that dated back to the 1800's.

The bulk of the weight is distributed across a series of steel beams that have been engineered and designed to incorporate the existing bedrock. Such a cool look with the hanging fire pot and the actual bedrock serving as a little sitting area.

A tight shot showing the detail of the custom shutters. I like the choice in materials, from the rusted, ribbed steel to the lapping of the soft pine. A subtle industrial vibe.

Dual purpose. Providing shade and allowing the breeze to flow through.

A sweet view from the water looking back at the cottage. I love the design in the barn doors. It's just enough to catch your eye as the weathered and worn look of the structure seems to mesh so well with the surrounding landscape.
