Inspired by the spirit of freedom, adventure and the dramatic landscapes of the west, the NorthWest is superbly versatile, equally at home in a mountain valley, a desert plateau or on a forested lake-view site. Sharing the same open floor plan and simple-to-build high-efficiency structure of the NorthEast, the sweeping roofline of the NorthWest draws your eyes upward, toward big skies and wide vistas, ideal for sites with long views.
Designed for natural, low maintenance finishes, the interior spaces are open and expansive-feeling, despite its quite modest proportions. Two huge glass doors and two big skylights provide the central living space with ample natural light and views to the sky and land around you. The bedroom’s long, gently sloped cathedral ceiling gives the loft space a sublime feeling, complete with its big, operable skylight for fresh air and stargazing.

How much your cabin will cost to build depends on where you build, who builds it, and your choices of finishing details (high-end, modest, or low-end). All of our designs offer flexibility during planning and during construction to use windows, doors, and interior & exterior finishes that suit your budget and preferences. In the US or Canada, per square foot costs for materials range between US$100 and $250, with professional labour another US$100 to $250 per square foot.
To get up-to-date, locally relevant pricing for the materials that will be required to build your cabin, take your set of plans, no matter where you purchased them, to a building materials supplier to receive a ‘materials takeoff’ and price for everything that they are able to supply. If you are building your cabin yourself, *this* amount, plus another 15% for contingency, is your ballpark cost to build, plus your time.
Complete and even more accurate building budget calculations can be made by a local, experienced builder who has considered all your unique requirements and the building site’s unique characteristics. It can be worth paying a small consultation fee to gain their real-life insights into building costs in your particular area.
