After purchasing this lot with the rustic cabin, I told my designer Stephen Seidel to think about incorporating the cabin in the design. We met with Joyce Algier who heads the Town of Frisco Community Development. Joyce was excited about keeping the cabin as it is a piece of town history that should be part of the town’s future. We decided to obtain Historical zoning approval.
After several meetings with the Planning Commission and Town Council the zoning and the design was approved. The old cabin gets saved and becomes a key element of the project. The exterior will remain largely authentic and the interior will be updated to code. The fabulous wood inside the cabin will be repurposed and the history will be honored.
