OPEN FLOOR PLAN – Guests can gather in the large open kitchen, living and dining areas for meal prep, conversation and lounging about.
Turn your dreams of cabin living into reality by building this cozy timber-frame cabin. It features an open floor plan centered on a stone fireplace, and it has generous exterior spaces for relaxing any time of the day.

A large kitchen open to the living and dining spaces invites the whole family to participate in meal preparation. If your guests like to congregate in the kitchen area, this plan allows room for it.

Abundant dining spaces both inside and out are featured here, and exterior views become a part of the interior with well-placed windows.

The two bedrooms on the first floor share the same bath, but closing the pocket door creates privacy when necessary.

When a larger crowd gathers at the cabin, make use of the second-floor loft as an additional sleeping area. And if your cabin site allows for lower-level windows, consider adding bedrooms on the lower level to provide plenty of bunk space for the whole gang.

Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) keep the cabin cool in summer and warm in winter.

The flexible floor plan is designed to fit on any lot. It’s just as comfortable on a long and narrow lot as it is on a wider one.
