Wintergreen Cabin is a 1,600 sqf cabin built into a steep hillside overlooking a stream with a view to the mountains in the distance. The cabin is anchored into the hill with a concrete base that contains the garage and other utility spaces. The upper floor houses all of the living areas. The south side of the cabin is a single space containing the living/dining/kitchen with large window walls on 3 sides. Decks cantilever off of the concrete base on three sides and allow views into the stream below.  Facing east, the master suite opens out to the stream ravine with glass sliding pocket doors.
