Jay DeWitt wanted a rustic timber frame cabin on his parcel of land on Sand Lake near Cumberland, WI. But what evolved during the design process was not a rustic northwoods getaway, but a modernist dwelling with a warm and inviting feeling.
The modernist cedar-and-glass structure on Sand Lake near Cumberland boasts a metal barrel vault roof instead of pitched gables. Inside, the stark white walls are hung not with wildlife art but abstract paintings. The fireplace surround is a sleek mix of limestone tile and metal, not traditional fieldstone. And the whole place is wired with a high-tech audio/visual system with wall-touch screens to play music and movies.
