Charming Creekside Cabin with Rustic-Refined Aesthetic

California architect Amy A. Alper designed this charming creek-side cabin in Santa Rosa, California. This delightful riverfront home sits on a serene property surrounded by towering firs and redwoods. One of the regulations for building here was that new construction was limited only to “previously disturbed” areas, so the architect thought outside the box with a great cantilevered living room and hallway addition that, while adding extra living space, had no impact on the land. Though revamped, the shingle-style cabin design, circa 1920s, maintains its country charms. The architect salvaged the original shingled exterior and used it as the backdrop for the new living spaces, adding a wonderful outdoor feel to interiors. Furthermore, this forest home features expansive glass walls that capture views of the trees and the creek. A fabulous fireplace feature warms up this rustic cabin home, both in looks and in feel.
