northern-wisconsin-rustic-cabin-retreat-exterior

This rustic cabin retreat was designed for family getaways by TEA2 Architects in collaboration with John Kraemer & Sons, located in Northern, Wisconsin. An extensive amount of natural materials were used on both the interior and exterior of this home, which included natural stone, and reclaimed wood sourced from Montana. There is no sheetrock in this entire house! Continue below for the rest of this dreamy home tour…

Project Team: Builder: John Kraemer & Sons | Architect: TEA2 Architects | Interior Design: Marcia Morine

The homeowners cherished large, frequent gatherings of family and friends. They wanted their retreat to feel rustic, yet contemporary and inviting. The architects stretched structure along the waterline to allow for extensive lake views to the north, and sun to penetrate from the south.

What We Love: This rustic cabin retreat offers a private sanctuary for a family and its guests to enjoy the tranquility of lakeside living. Living spaces are designed to be comfortable, inviting and effortless, what one would want when they are relaxing on a vacation. Overall the architects did a beautiful job of creating a cabin with a welcoming atmosphere that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Note: Be sure to tour the must-see guest cabin (on the property) we featured here: Cozy rustic bunkhouse getaway in Northern Wisconsin.

Above: State-of-the-art, thermal bi-fold doors separate the kitchen from the porch. When they’re open, the two rooms live as one; the threshold between them seamless.

Above: During summer months, the screened porch becomes an extension of the kitchen — expanding the seating, eating and entertaining areas.

Above: Natural light was maximized with a range hood and cabinets that “float” in front of south windows. The wall-less kitchen also grabs light from the screened porch.

rustic-dining-room

Above: In cooler months, dining moves inside and looks out to the fire pit, pines and lake beyond.

Above: The architects designed this steampunk-inspired, roll-down screen for the fireplace. Wood storage is recessed into a slot in the chimney. The TV, to the left, disappears behind pocket doors.

That is a beautiful, magnificent lake house. (Hardly a cabin. I have one and it is 750 sq ft.)

Thank you for showing this, I am amazed by what artisans and craftsmen can accomplish. I try to imagine this house AND the bunk house filled to capacity for a family cookout!
