New Cabin | Pinecrest CA Back
Images: Ellis A. Schoichet AIA
The cabin, set in an
historic recreation
community administered
by the US Forest Service, replaces a beloved family retreat destroyed by fire in the Winter of 2008.
The cabin is located above 5,600' elevation in
the Sierra Nevada near
Yosemite National Park
and the Emigrant
Wilderness Area.
The design survived a rigorous review process that requires all buildings to blend unobtrusively
into the forested setting and conform to the rustic ‘Forest Service’ aesthetic. Working within these
constraints, and inspired by the Owners' love of the old cabin, the new design is fine-tuned
to the family's lifestyle and full of amenities missing from its predecessor. Completed in Spring
2011, the all new 1,319 sf wood cabin has already earned its place as the family’s favorite getaway.
The main cabin has a steeply vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and a generous sleeping loft.
The casual vacation lifestyle is enhanced by an expansive outdoor living area on the deck, a four
season indoor/outdoor ‘Games Room’, and a ‘Bunk-House’ with its own bathroom and sleeping loft
for the kids and their friends.
