Dug into the slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and nestled between a 100-year-old Jeffrey pine trees resides the ultimate wilderness retreat, the Campout House.
The 3,800-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, a gathering space, garage, and private outdoor space.
The house is delicately positioned to blend in with its natural surroundings, while also maximizing privacy.
Designed by Faulkner Architects, the Campout House’s bold facade of eight-inch concrete walls and slanted steel roof creates a monolithic exterior. Imposing, but also resistant to wildfires.
Inside, cedar-lined walls and ceilings add a warm contrast. Basalt floors page homage to the rugged boulders outside, while the blackened steel casework frame floor-to-ceiling windows help bring more of the the outside in.
Living spaces surround a central courtyard, where a fire pit replicates the same atmosphere found at a rural campsite.
