The Boathouse

Built in 2012 on the banks of the Nestucca River. This boathouse is no ordinary shack. Intended to store kayaks, canoes and other river toys, this little structure does all that – with style to spare. Designed by Scott Edwards Architects, Orange was hired to build this beauty, and the site posed some unique challenges. The boathouse is accessed by the river on one side, and a long, steep trail on the other side. The only way to get materials and equipment to the site without destroying the surrounding forest, was to barge them across the river.
