  • Modern Cabin

    This small modern cabin provides ample living space for a weekend (or week long) getaway. The 800 square foot cabin can sleep up to six people. Clean lines and sleek appliances and plumbing fixtures contribute to the large feel of the space. Windows on all sides provide day lighting and cross ventilation; large south facing windows frame views of the Green Mountains. The covered porch and wrap around deck provide outdoor living space. The cabin is intended as a prototype for a small modular house.

    The energy efficient cabin of sustainable design is constructed of green materials. The exterior siding and decking are durable cedar and Ipe. Interior materials include polished concrete floors, local woods of ash, cherry, hemlock and pine, Vermont slate and low voc finishes.
