The main goal for th­ese own­ers was to cap­i­tal­ize on the views with win­dow walls and out­door spa­ces — the lat­ter of which also helps the cabin live larger. The 720-square-foot foot­print gains a lot of trac­tion through three lev­els hous­ing two bed­rooms, three baths, two liv­ing rooms and a one-car garage. It also hand­ily mixes Ap­palachian style through dark square logs and bright white chink­ing with a more tra­di­tional in­te­rior fea­tur­ing honey-toned walls and the oc­ca­sional hint of dry­wall.

This cabin also boasts: An open loft showcases the truss­work of the home while pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional space to re­lax. A trape­zoid win­dow floods the space with nat­u­ral light and al­lows for views of the val­ley be­low.

The own­ers added an ex­tra row of logs to the walls in the main liv­ing area so that the beams could be placed higher and give an il­lu­sion of more space.

A cozy kitchen fea­tures plenty of work sur­faces, with a break­fast bar at the is­land for more ca­sual din­ing.
