Japanese Inspired Boathouse


Japanese Boathouse Interior

Picture 5 of 5

Interior view of boathouse and doors that access the covered porch.

Inspired by the graceful and swooping Japanese Temple roofs, this boathouse is richly detailed with sweeping roof curves, a cupola, copper shingles, and fine applique exterior woodwork on the walls. †The Timber Frame is crafted from high quality Douglas Fir, and the engineered Timber Framed trusses create a beautiful open and clear spanned interior. The hip roofed cupola brings natural light into the interior of the building. With 2 slips for boats, there is also an open porch that seems to flow slightly elevated above the lake’s water level.
