Crawl Space Facts
Remote mountain retreat
Salvage of existing structure into new luxury cabin.
Use of local stone and lumber.
Introduction of regional mountain rock formation at entry hall.
Open space design enhancing natural lighting.
Use of fractured and imperfect stones echoing nature.
Use of spiked logs for bar top, and stool platform found in "Bone Yard" of local lumber mill which was being demolished.
Note: Spiked logs are from radical environmentalist opposing the local lumbering industry. Trees have to be x-rayed prior to being milled.
Use of broken giant band saw blades as wainscot for entertainment room toilet decor.
Lumber mill mirror that was used for protected observation of huge trees being fed into saw blade. The saw blade would explode when making contact with spiked logs.
Note recycled flooring as wall paneling.
