Beach Cabin Renovation-Rocky Rochon Design-03-1 Kindesign

The renovation of an existing 1920’s beach cabin was carried out by Rocky Rochon Design and architect Stephen Sullivan, located on Orcas Island, Washington. The project includes a complete demolition of the interiors of the home, preserving the stone fireplace in the living room and the blue tiled bathroom. The cabin consists of 1,200 square feet of living space; decorated with an eclectic, cozy aesthetic that includes vintage finds, rustic finishes and an artistic, innovative flair.

The scope of this project included creating enlarged, open public areas to maximize water the views towards the ocean. Two separate bedroom suites were created to add comfort and luxury. Additionally, access was created to a private area with a new hot tub. All of the electrical and plumbing was also updated throughout.

Design Solution: Demolish existing interior walls and enlarge living room/dining area into an adjacent seating area with french doors to expand the view and create access to a private new hot tub. Design full height bookcases and re-panel all walls in recycled weathered wood.

Design new coffered ceilings with tongue and groove wood panels and add new wood paneling to match the scale of the recycled paneling and paint. Recycle kitchen cabinets and juxtapose with new cabinets design in a vintage/traditional manor. Furniture, art and accessories are a mix of new, vintage, antique, to create the effect of a timeless, collected, artistic, cozy cabin.
