Childhood friends Mitch Forbes and Dan Kroenert are no strangers to rolling their sleeves up and getting their hands dirty.
After a 7 month council approval process, the pair, who both live in the neighbouring region, decided to build a sustainably-focused cabin for two on a 13 acre block belonging to Mitch’s family, in Crackenback, New South Wales, about 5 minutes outside Jindabyne.
Aptly named ‘Crafters Cabin’ in honour of their efforts, this paired-back yet visually stunning luxury couples retreat has been designed in a way that masterfully respects the natural environment in which it sits, employing a host of energy-efficient principles and design features to enable it to operate completely off-grid.
The guys have also brought on partners who share their sustainable ethos to equip the property, including the likes of Cultiver linen and Leif body products, creating a mentally and physically nourishing sanctuary for guests to truly unwind in.
It was an absolute pleasure chatting with Mitch and Dan a couple of days ago and I’ve no doubts you’ll also enjoy our chat today.
