Chapel, Outlook Inn

Architectural Placemaking

In 2016 ChrisRay and Marcus flew to Orcas Island in Washington state to do a full building remodel of a 100 year old settler’s cabin.


This beautiful house, once used as a ‘drinking chapel’ by a spiritual group during prohibition, had fallen into disrepair and was in need of a major facelift.


Working with the Outlook Inn and Erin Johnson, a former employee of One Hat One Hand, ChrisRay and Marcus transformed this cabin into a rustic chapel and whiskey bar just in time for Erin’s wedding.


May years later the chapel at Outlook In has hosted countless weddings and special occasions.
