This cabin is designed for year-round recreational use. A long sun porch, complete with sink, stretches across most of the back. A wide deck nearly doubles the available living area during warmer weather.
In colder weather, the sun porch doubles as a storage area for winter toys. The sturdy woodstove pumps out enough heat to keep the cabin cozy.
The kitchen is surprisingly large. It is completely open to the lofty dining and living room. Additional workspace is provided by a wide central chopping/eating bar. A counter near the dining room could be used as a bar or serve as an appliance center. Utilities and extra storage space are close at hand.
Firewood stays dry in a small back room it shares with the forced air unit and water heater. The first floor bathroom is compartmentalized, with the toilet and oversize shower separate from the lavatory. Access is from two sides, through the utility room, or the living room.
Upstairs, a bathroom with a tub, serves the two narrow bedrooms. A large linen closet fills the space in front of the stairs, at the landing.
All of our plans are designed by licensed architects and residential building designers. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes for the year they were created.

All of our plans are designed to provide the information needed to build your home. Because of the wide range of requirements throughout states and municipalities, it is possible that the plans may not have all of the information required by your building department. If this is the case, we recommend hiring a local design professional or engineer who can assist bringing the plans up to your local building code.
Some states require that a licensed architect or engineer review and stamp the plans. If this is the case where you will be building, a local professional will be able to assist you.
