This small boat house is located on the beach front of Skywater Lodge, a private residence in Lake Tahoe. The design/build problem was to create a structure to store 3-4 small boats. It needed to be accessed in the summer and protected from the harsh elements in the winter. There was an existing deck where the boats had been stacked in the past, which became the base for the new structure. The building was designed to blend into the hillside by mimicking the surrounding granite boulders, with its undulating roof and grey color palette.
