: Above snow line, better views
Built near a river in a floodplain in 2005, this cabin known as 'Delta Shelter' was described by the architect, Tom Kundig, as “basically a steel box on stilts.” The 1,000-square-foot cabin, rising three stories high, can be shuttered by a hand crank when not in use. It rises above the winter snow line and blends into a stand of trees the rest of the year.
