Simple forms come together in this distinctive design to create a small cabin that lives large. Despite its petite size, when the folding glass walls are open to the deck, there is plenty of room to sprawl out for the weekend. The elevated main floor of the cabin creates a great covered patio and an outdoor fireplace beneath it.

The main-floor living space is compact, yet features another fireplace and a large deck with stainless cable railings. There is a main-floor bedroom suite and a laundry area that’s tucked away behind a partition.

Rounding out this design is an upper-level bunkroom complete with its own deck and a storage area for guests to use.

Dimensions (w x d): 24 x 18 ft. 8 in. (not including deck)
Bedrooms: 1 + bunkroom
Baths: 1
Main level: 405 sq. ft.
Upper level: 142 sq. ft.
Total square feet: 547 sq. ft.
Foundation: Pier
