It all began when we were invited to see our friends cabin in Topanga Canyon. We instantly fell in love with the place. There were a few cabins on the property but none of them were available to rent. We started a dialogue with the owner and he encouraged us to build our own space with his materials. We initiated the task of clearing the site, cataloging the materials and beginning construction in the spring of 2011.
