Unique Montana Wilderness Retreat Would Make An Awesome Squamish Hideaway

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) Despite delivering its electoral votes to the orange menace last night, the great state of Montana has a lot going for it if you’re down for the great wide open. We usually camp our way across it, but we’d much prefer a nice in this wilderness retreat near Big Fork on Flathead Lake. The view is all that and we dig the living roof, but check out those outer walls! They’re made of short pieces of barkless cordwood collected from on site felling. Designed by Texas-based Andersson-Wise Architects, the striking complex is broken up into private and family zones that are divided and connected by a series of inner courtyards. If we could put anywhere we wanted in BC, we’d slip it someplace elevated and accessible (but still remote) just northwest of the Squamish estuary.

This Tiny Cabin for Beer Island, Please

With solar panels on its A-frame, the stilted construction has very little impact on its immediate environment and did not require building permits because of its diminutive size.
