Sol Duc Cabin

In the woods of the Olympic Peninsula, the Sol Duc Cabin is a get away for a fly fisherman. This little oasis is not your average cabin by any means. It sits on stilts to keep it safe from the occasional flood from the nearby river, and while it’s sleek and modern inside, with dining and kitchen areas on the lower level and a sleeping loft above, the outside is purposely raw, with unfinished steel and insulated panels. And to ensure it stays safe when fishing season’s over, there are full-length shutters that cover the house’s windows, making it practically indestructible, and ensuring it’s just as he left it when it’s time to fish again.
