12. Long Lake Cabin

Designed and Built by Scott Homes

The original house, a family gathering place for decades, was deconstructed, recycled and replaced by a comfortable, energy efficient home designed for generations. The new structure sits on an insulated slab, with triple pane windows, SIPs walls and roof, and exterior rainscreen. Build a Sustainable Legacy!

This 1950 sq ft cabin features a ductless heat pump, Panasonic WhisperGreen fans, a make-up air damper and triple pane windows along with the other green “touches” you would expect to find. The home’s structure is 6” structural insulated panel (SIP) walls and a 10” SIP roof. It sits on a slab on grade foundation with 2 layers of R 10 rigid foam. The 3/4” rain screen between the SIP wall and exterior siding reduces the possibility of moisture damage and provides further thermal bridging reduction. Come see how simple, thoughtful construction can last – and work – for generations.

The Long Lake Cabin was built to welcome family and friends. The original building was the family gathering place for nearly 20 years but it had to be removed (it was recycled locally).

“Our kids grew up out here,” says Barb, owner of the Long Lake Cabin. “We want our grandchildren and their grandchildren to have a wonderful, quiet place to get away and play as well. This place is our legacy to them.”

The cabin’s vaulted ceiling, open floor plan and spacious 2nd floor balcony make it a great space for adults or kids or adults with kids, which is just what the owners were going for. Come by and see how simple comfortable can be.
