Alpine Ski Cabin by Scott & Scott Architects

Hide away to a place where no one else matters. Independent from society, surviving by techniques long tossed as unnecessary, inconvenient, time eaters. It’s a place to clear your head, to be intimate with the one you love, distractions limited to falling snowflakes or the passing wildlife.

The Scott & Scott Architects Alpine Cabin braces itself for the expected 50 feet of snow a year. What appears to be a humble self sufficient profile in weathered cedar is actually quite eloquent on the inside. Fixed in Vancouver this log home is constructed of local lumber, enhanced with rich wall to ceiling and all floors in hard wood. Decorated with rustic furnishings, though minimal, call for a glass of wine while sitting around the front and center wood stove. Simple cubbies to store cords for the fire squeeze between a few hooks for coats and the doorway. A cushioned bench fills the corner pointing you in the direction of the great window framing snow covered pines. Time to let go of your world, and to hold onto nothing but nature and fresh powder.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
