Storing Your Cabin's Gear for the Water
Fun on the water often comes with lots of gear – from boats to life jackets, skis to sails, paddles to deck chairs. A boathouse or waterfront storage building can help protect your water toys, put everything you need within easy reach, and make a style statement, too. Before you start doodling designs for your dream dock or boathouse, check with the zoning restrictions in your area, which may dictate what you can build and how close it can be to the water.
Shade, Sun & FunA covered dock can protect your boat from the elements, while still providing plenty of sunshine for swimmers. This aluminum dock with Ipe wood decking and frame wrap provides style and space for a boat, plus personal watercraft. The swim ladder makes coming ashore easy.
Shine OnAt dusk, the light shining between the wood slats of this Oregon boathouse’s changing room creates the look of an oversized lantern floating near the shore. Two roof planes cover the changing room and the boat docking area. A large diving and sunning platform is accented with a swimmers’ ladder.
Raising the Bar
Stools and storage for barware transform this waterside outbuilding into the perfect spot for serving drinks with a view. With access to electricity, a small refrigerator could be added to keep cold beverages at the ready.
