Contemporary Getaway

By Dan Gregory, Originally Published in Houseplans.com

Two story shed-roofed cabin is a nature viewing platform.

This house is all about connecting with a woodsy, lakeside, or country setting -- with walls of operable windows to capture the view. The two story living-dining area and kitchen and expanses of glass make this small 727 sq. foot home feel much larger than it is. The sleeping loft above the bath and kitchen-dining area shares the view and feels a little like a treehouse. A large glazed canopy and an outdoor fireplace just outside the main space create a welcoming outdoor room for entertaining and relaxing and add to the vacation ambience. It's a seductive modern getaway.
