Pine Forest Cabin by Balance Associate Architects

It’s easy on the eyes, and so our attention is drawn to things that last, like the magnificent view. The quiet presence of the Pine Forest Cabin by Balance Associate Architects doesn’t interfere with the task at hand…getting away from it all. Rather, it seduces us to lounge and take deep breaths, sip your coffee slowly and meditate in the afternoon sun.  Such a building is simple,  lacks nothing, though filled with little. It’s minimalist attitude is delightful. The four corner chalet fits itself into the scenic hillside in Winthrop, Washington. Its architect reflects on the finished product, “We believe this project demonstrates our belief that architecturally interesting solutions can be achieved for budgets of all sizes without sacrificing quality or aesthetics.”

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.
