The design of this cabin was premised on three goals: provide the required spaces for an extended stay cabin within a minimal footprint; provide a quality of space and abundant natural daylight typically not found a structure this size; and provide for simple construction and maintenance.
Within the sixteen by twenty-two foot footprint, the ground floor contains a living space, kitchen, and bath. With doors opening on three sides, the interior literally opens up to the outdoors. The compact kitchen provides for a variety of appliance configurations depending on individual needs.
