Camp Fish Lips

Caryville, Tennessee

With its position on top of a rock bluff, this vacation cabin takes full advantage of a 360-degree view of Norris Lake in Cumberland County, Tennessee.

Designed with a “fishing camp” concept, the layout is organized around a “dog trot” exterior connector, attached to which are bedrooms and a screen porch/observation tower with a fire pole exit. The exterior connector terminates with the great room, which incorporates living, dining and kitchen areas.

The interior consists of whitewashed white pine shiplap siding and heart pine floors. The monochromatic exterior combines native wood siding and stone, with an ingenious raised window system conceived by the owner. To accommodate this homeowners’ small children, JAI also designed a freestanding “tree house” with a swinging bridge connection.

The architect has demonstrated a wonderfully sensitive approach to the scale of the elements, their material, texture, and lighting that will enhance the experience of the visitor’s stay.
