Camping has never been so good. The Sol Duc Cabin ($TBA) located about 66 miles West of Seattle on the Olympic Peninsula is a 350 square foot masterpiece. It was originally built for a client of Olson Kundig Architects, who loves fly-fishing for steelhead. The cabin is clad in steel and features a rugged patina and safe haven from flooding from the nearby river.
The owner wanted something that was low-maintenance and virtually indestructible. The large exterior steel panels slide on rails made for barn doors, for security when the cabin is not occupied and for protection against inclimate weather. It has two levels, and rooms including diningroom, kitchen, and sleeping loft. This is prefab at its best.
