The owner of this house was very clear about things: a mountain refuge must look like it. Therefore, she even included trees inside! Welcome to the magic cabin.
1. THE LOOKOUT WINDOW
The owner of this cabin in the Aran Valley, coordinated the reform herself and she said she needed that window because the morning sun shines through there.
2. TITANIC TASK
The great success of the reform, he tells us, was to choose well the contractor, carpenter, and other trades in the Arán Valley itself, very detailed, although at times they doubted his ideas.
3. UNIQUE LOGS
She had a hard time convincing them of the three birch logs that help support the top floor, and they ended up taking very proud photos of their work.
4. 360 VIEWS
From any corner you can see the rest of the house, for example, from the bedroom in the attic you can hang out and see the kitchen.
5. MORE WOOD
The timbers that lined the house were dark and very unattractive. She asked them for two maxims: that nature should come into the house and that they recover the wood, for her, it makes no sense to come to a cabin like that to paint everything white.
6. THE REFUGE KITCHEN
Although the clever multi-story layout makes it seem otherwise, the house isn’t too big. That is why the kitchen has small dimensions and is in the middle of the living room, whose aesthetic line (wooden planks) retains without clashing.
7. RECOVERED BEDROOM
Removing the layers of varnish to leave the original woods as matt as possible was the most expensive part of the renovation, both in time and financial investment.
8. ORIGINAL BATHROOM
The en suite bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a wooden wall, so as not to clash with the rest of the house. The feeling of being in a mountain refuge does not leave us at any time.
The bathroom, very balanced and inspired by a Finnish sauna.
10. WOODY BUNK BEDS
The bunk beds and cabinets are just wonderful. The ladder is the original. In all the rooms they turned the windows into doors with access to the garden.
