Economical Cabin Charms with Simplicity

People who feel drawn to simplicity will find much to appreciate in this home. Call it a cabin, a bungalow or a vacation retreat. Whichever designation you chose, this home is charming. And being small, it's as economical to build as it is to maintain. Slender wooden posts support and define a long front porch that wraps around to the right. Exposed rafter tails along the roof's edge create visual interest there, while cedar shake shingles give a rustic texture to the exterior, above the board and batten siding. Entering, you step through one of the two atrium doors into a surprisingly large and sunny vaulted great room. Windows line much of the side wall, and a kitchen with a large work island fills the rear. If a wood or gas flame stove is part of your dream, the front corner by the door is an ideal location. Standing at the kitchen's four-burner stove, you can easily serve up hot soups, cocoa, coffee and assorted culinary delights to family and friends perched on stools along the raised eating and conversation bar. A stacked washer/dryer is nearby, hidden behind doors that front the hallway leading to the back porch. Shelves fill the other half of the alcove. Its lower half could be outfitted with a folding counter atop storage cabinets. More storage is available in a smaller alcove across from the bathroom. Two rooms fill the rest of the left side. The front bedroom is larger and boasts a wide closet. The second room could be used as a study or another bedroom. A pull-down ladder there provides handy attic access.
