Are you a hunter? If so, you may be dreaming of that day when you can have your very own hunting lodge! Have you been thinking about what you would include in your personalized hunting lodge? We wanted to share with you a few ideas you may want to consider including.
Lots of Windows
You have a hunting lodge to enjoy the outdoors, you want to be able to take in the views. Make sure your lodge is filled with large, strategically placed windows, to not only appreciate the views but also bring in a lot of natural light.
Besides windows, you also want a porch to be able to take in the views. Along with that, similar to a hunting lodge we recently designed, you can have your porch created to also have shooting stations to targets that you have set up on your property.
Space for Visitors
Anticipate you are going to want to bring your friends and family to your hunting lodge, and be prepared with extra rooms and accommodations.
We recently worked with an individual to design their own personal hunting lodge in Albany Township. The 1,500-SF lodge space was designed with exposed timber frame construction, a center cupola with windows to bring in daylight, bi-folding exterior glass doors to open the space to the covered porches, radiant heating and a wood stove. The 2 sides have covered porches with shooting stations and targets on the property. The lower level was designed for tractor and equipment storage with 13’ high ceilings, a 12’ high x 24’ wide hanger-type door for getting large equipment into the lower level. The exterior has 8” thick stone salvaged from a barn demolition project and wood siding. Who wouldn’t want to have a place like this to call their own?!?
