The Judith Mountain Fire Lookout Cabin designed by Prairie Wind Architecture in Montana


The Judith Mountain Cabin was designed by Prairie Wind Architecture in Montana   

When building the fire lookout cabin, this lookout had to become part of those landscapes. Not just in form and material, but in time, as well. It had to look old from the moment it was finished. It had to look like 1939, like the CCC had built it. A lot of recycled material was used to accomplish this. Corrugated metal roofing from a barn being demolished down the road. Beams, flooring and decking were recycled from an 80-year-old trestle, recently dismantled. The stone came from the site, and rock flooring was quarried in Idaho.

In contrast to the exterior, the interiors are archaic, but light, and anything but rustic. The ground level provides cooking, washing and storage, with sleeping for two. The upper level provides the connection to the views, with windows in every direction, and a six-foot square skylight at the peak of the roof to insure even more light to the space. On the second level, there is also sleeping for two, and storage between the floor beams and in the furniture.

  

  
The cabin is powered by two fifty-watt photovoltaic panels that provide twelve volt direct current power to outlets, lights, and the well pump. That power lets the client have a stereo, a TV/VCR, running water in the sink, and water to fill a wood-fired hot tub. A composting toilet, visible in the tenth photo, provides sanitation.
