River Bluff Cabin and Bunk House

“Catfish Bar Bunkhouse” Remodeling 
Troy Burne, Wisc.

2006 ROMA Winner

The Challenge
Repair and renovate a small 60-year-old bunkhouse on the banks of the St. Croix River, a site accessible only via boat or a six-minute downhill/uphill walk. All repairs had to comply with National Scenic Riverway District guidelines.

The Solution
First, we contracted with a boat service to deliver materials to the site. Then, windows and doors were reoriented to maximize river views. A dangerous old wood stove was replaced with a wall mounted heater/air conditioner. On site, we custom-built bunk beds with storage for clothing, linens and bulky items, and installed additional storage cabinetry plus refrigerator and electronics. Interior cedar siding matches the existing cabin on the property.
