These homeowners wanted to design a cozy cabin that also provided enough space for visiting children and grandchildren. Important features included a small footprint for the lakeside lot, plenty of windows to capture lake vistas, and versatile decor options via a mix of rustic elements and color drywall backdrops.
This cabin also boasts:
A manufactured stone fireplace in the great room creates an inviting centerpiece. The area serves as a family activity hotspot where everyone can gather for board games, reading or simply enjoying the views of the surrounding area.
An upper-level master suite was originally intended to be a loft but now offers the homeowners extra privacy from guests.
The combination deck/ porch provides the perfect perch to observe activity on the lake below, while also adding a cozy quotient to the cabin’s exterior appeal.
Stacked bathrooms and central utilities for the laundry room, kitchen and upperlevel bathroom help streamline systems.
