RLW CABIN - SULLIVAN COUNTRY, NEW YORK STATE

RLW CABIN - SULLIVAN COUNTY, NEW YORK

Built from the ground up on a sloped, heavily wooded lot, the RLW Cabin is both a viewing platform and a protective shelter.  The environmentally sensitive construction incorporates a number of innovative materials and building methods, earning the home a LEED Silver designation by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for achievement in green homebuilding.  Shadow Architect, P.C. also handled all interiors and built many of the furnishings including the dining table and master bed.  The cabin was a 2010 Dwell Magazine “Houses We Love” finalist.
