This four-season camp-inspired lakeside retreat was designed for a family of five by Murdough Design, located on just over 12-acres in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. Located down a winding road through a serene forest, the retreat boasts breathtaking views of Lake Winnipesaukee.
The structure consists of a 2,733 square foot main residence along with a 382 square feet guest cabin, connected via an elevated boardwalk. Once an outdated, dilapidated cabin, this dwelling has undergone a complete renovation with modern designs and finishes. There is a living roof and an expansive rooftop deck and walkway to connect with nature and the scenery that surrounds the home.
The exterior cladding was sourced from reSAWN TIMBER co. and includes:
- CUSTOM weathered Western Red Cedar
- STK (Select Tight Knot)
- Finished on face only, sealed all 4 sides (exterior)
- Solid 3/4” thick x 5” wide x 6′-16′ random lengths
The home’s design features countless large windows that provide expansive views of the lake and trees surrounding it. Some of reSAWN’s exterior cladding transitions into the interior, providing a seamless design. “The exterior palette and glass are designed to visually camouflage and recess the building into the landscape,” states the architects.
Western Red Cedar was an excellent selection as a building material in this project, as it is one of North America’s great renewable resources. In addition to its prominence as a sustainable exterior material, it’s very durable.
What We Love: This lakeside retreat in New Hampshire blurs the lines between indoors and out thanks to an abundance of glazing. Surrounded by a peaceful setting of mature growth trees and the lake, this home provides its inhabitants with a fabulous atmosphere to relax and unwind. We are fond the clean lines and low-maintenance materials that were used in this project… not to mention the living roof and rooftop viewing deck!
