Christmas Cabin in the Woods

This spectacular one-of-a-kind house in the woods of Ontario was a joint effort between the owner, her architect, and a variety of local skilled craftspeople – it’s her perfect home all year round, but it's particularly magical during the festive season.

NO Canada - When it came to expanding their cherished self-built cabin in the woods, Mara Smelters Wier and her late husband John had a very specific requirement. “We built the original cabin in 1980 out of timber felled on the site, initially to use as a summer retreat, but it later became our full-time home. After 30 years of living in it, it was important to us that we retained the character of the building in some way,” Mara explains. Friend and local architect Dave Spolnik, of Sprout Studios, was tasked with finding a solution, and after various concepts were bandied around – such as using the cabin as a wing of the new house – a whimsical yet inspired design won Mara and John’s hearts. The original cabin now sits in the centre of the new house, fabric and character both very much intact.
