Contemporary Cabin with PNW Charm in Terrebonne

Location: Terrebonne, Oregon

This Crooked River Ranch home proves that you don’t have to sacrifice sustainable and energy efficient quality for small spaces. Featuring durable materials and clean lines, this contemporary vacation cabin design fits today’s lifestyle for an active young family. The homeowners bought this breathtaking property and were camping on it regularly with their young family when they decided to hire Solaire to design and build them a modern cabin to serve as their family’s vacation home. They wanted their vacation home to feature Solaire’s five pinnacles for design – Comfort, Health, Savings, Durability and Sustainability. We delivered all of that and more!

Set back from the rim’s edge on a 6-acre parcel, the snow-capped Cascade Mountains greet you while the homes below the rim remain virtually invisible.

986 sq. feet
3 bedrooms

The young family we built this home for has timeless taste. This vacation cabin was designed around communal living spaces, this 986 square foot home feels bigger with 17′ vaulted ceilings, open floor plan and huge mountain-facing windows. The three-bedroom and one-bathroom are still large enough for guests or a private office!

The blower door test for this home was 2.65 ACH.
