Sasha brought this A Frame beauty back to life. (Image credit: Submitted by Sasha)

Name: Sasha
Location: Rhododendron, Oregon

We acquired this dilapidated and mold-infested A-Frame with wall-to-wall carpet and kitschy mountain interior decor about a year and a half ago and spent pretty much every single weekend since then lovingly reinventing it. I redesigned the interior and my husband and I performed almost all of the buildout ourselves.

Built in 1963, the A-Frame originally featured vaulted ceilings, a basalt rock fireplace, and wood-paneling throughout, not to mention great bones. We basically worked with the character of the house (that was already very mid-century) but finessed it by redoing all of the lighting (lots of vintage Fog & Norup) and working with the open floor plan to create a communal yet minimal space.

Other flourishes include a handwoven wool rug we purchased on a trip to Oaxaca, Blockshop Textiles pillows, and a partition that I designed and had built based on the Skagerak Cutter stool.

Thanks, Sasha!
