Bright and cozy, this is a cabin with a gambrel, or barn-style, roof and an open beam ceiling. Although the home is designed for use as a vacation getaway, singles and couples with no children or grown children may find it spacious enough for year round living.
Rectangular in shape (24 by 36 feet), the home has approximately 1,200 feet of living space, fits on a small lot and is economical to build.
Six huge windows -- three above and three below -- brighten a great room that occupies the front half of the home. Open to the roof beams, this combined living room, dining room and kitchen has a wide-open feeling. A woodstove could be included in either the dining or living room to provide additional warmth and cheer.
The kitchen is compact, but has plenty of cupboard and counter space. One of the counter extensions could be outfitted as an eating bar.
Total privacy is available in the master suite -- the only room upstairs. The suite has a private bathroom and two closets. Additional storage space is behind.
Two small bedrooms, another bathroom, and an average size utility room are below, at the back of the cabin. The utility room has an outside door, allowing people to remove muddy or snowy footgear here before entering the rest of the house.
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.
