Less than two miles from the Summit at Snoqualmie and a mile from Hyak Sno-Park, this A-frame has a classic, woodsy design—but it’s anything but rustic. The brand-new, prefab home by Bellingham-based Bldhouse is built not just for ski weekends, but a long-term mountain lifestyle.
Modern interior design by Ryan Stephenson is luxurious, but doesn’t upstage the woodsy setting. Exposed fir finishes, including some Douglas fir, provide their own minimalist decor, accented by exposed iron beams. The steeply pitched roof towers over the living area, gathered around a wood-burning fireplace. In the kitchen—which, while equipped with upscale appliances, has a simple, open design—the roof drops to normal height to make room for the upper level.
One bedroom is behind the living area, with a wide back porch along its far wall. The other has a soaring vaulted ceiling that reaches all the way up to the top of the A.
Another feature uncommon to the A-frame ski cabin: A basement has a tiled utility room for an easy apres-ski routine and storage, plus a second bathroom.
