Contemporary Cabin

Armadillo Design Lab

This custom home in Glacier, WA was created to fit the client’s dream image of a contemporary cabin. With beautiful wood details, a custom staircase, and a classic profile, this family home will last for generations. Here at Highline Construction we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and commitment to the quality of the project. This gorgeous Glacier home is no different: stainless steel appliances, a wood burning stove, and a lasting exterior all contribute to the modern yet rustic feel the clients were looking for.

In the heart of this contemporary mountain home, a wood burning stove set in concrete heats the main living area and shows off the family handprints. This centerpiece not only functions to heat the spacious log cabin, but serves as a beautiful focal point in the living room. Background tile comes from Surface Art Texture and perfectly compliments the neutral wall color. The kitchen and bathrooms feature Nickels Cabinets for lasting color and quality. The kitchen is modern and efficient, set partially underneath the staircase for maximum use of space. The bar area is perfect for entertaining, featuring gorgeous Spectrum Quartz Countertops in Pristine colorway. LG appliances and a Tilebar Castle Denim backsplash completes the modern look.

Blended wood elements give this home beautiful character; from fir trim to Douglas Fir steps in the staircase, this home has that unique cabin charm with a dynamic wood motif. Incorporated wood can be found in the ceiling, stairs, deck, and kitchen. The ceiling is 1x6 Tongue & Groove tight knot cedar w/Satin Clear coat. The deck is made with Doug Fir beams with a Satin Finish. The floor throughout the home is LVP for durability, specifically Harris Flooring Group 7” Edgewater. The star of the show, the custom staircase, has a cable rail, fir top cap, and Doug Fir steps.

This custom Glacier cabin blends traditional wood with modern design to produce a family home meant to last. Bright details and clean lines make the most of the space, with every area used efficiently.
