Pecos Modern Log Cabin / by Mark DuBois

Located in the Pecos Wilderness an hour east of Santa Fe, this cabin is a contemporary take on the traditional log cabins of the West.  Overlooking the Pecos River with its excellent fly fishing, the cabin was sited to preserve the old growth Ponderosas, Englemans and White Firs.  The expansive deck with its fire pit and seat walls serves as the primary dining and living space, and when the multi-panel sliding door is retracted the indoor and outdoor living spaces flow together.  A cantilevered glass railing allows unimpeded views of the river below.
