Situated on the southern slope of South Fork Mountain, overlooking the rolling hills of West Virginia, the Shack at Hinkle Farm is a 18 sqm tiny cabin that designed as a weekend retreat for a family from the suburbs of Washington.
This diminutive bucolic structure with board-and-batten siding and a standing seam roof, no electricity, oil lamps provide light, and a small wood stove provide heat.
The southeastern façade of the building is opened to a cantilevered wood deck, a removable canvas awning serves to shade the deck and extend the living space during wet weather.
Inspiration from architect:
The shack was created as a logical step between tent camping, and the yet unrealized weekend cottage.
