Amazing A-Frame cabin in a majestic redwood forest of Sonoma

Studio Plow has reimagined this classic timber-modified A-frame cabin that was originally constructed in 1974, nestled amidst a majestic redwood forest. The cabin is set along Austin Creek, a flowing stream in the mountains of western Sonoma County, California.

The architects were tasked with revamping this home into the contemporary era. There is a total of 1,000 square feet in this two-bedroom, two-bath cabin. The gut renovation left the shell mostly intact but opened the rear of the cabin to the light with asymmetric glazing.

Inside this a-frame cabin is a dramatic floor-to-ceiling, black, stone-tiled hearth, and a new kitchen with blackened steel work surfaces. These updates provide warm gathering places within the plan.

The kitchen features a pair of Fisher & Paykel cool drawers to use as either a freezer or to chill wine at the push of a button. The 80s vintage marble top was spotted on Craigslist and can be used for prep and to host dinners.

What We Love: This beautiful A-frame cabin provides a wonderful getaway set amongst a tranquil redwood forest. The architects did a fabulous job of revamping this home to maximize living spaces to comfortably welcome not only its owners but several overnight guests. We are loving the upstairs sleeping loft, a welcoming respite at the end of a long day. It offers privacy from guests and large windows to enjoy views of the surrounding forest.

Extraneous interior walls and finishes were demolished and stripped out, to leave a bright white space with light oak flooring that maximizes the forest’s limited direct sunlight.
