CON­CRETE

Cabin Living - - Editor’s View -

abin liv­ing more of­ten calls to mind images of well-weath­ered, wooden struc­tures sited high atop a moun­tain. Rarely does a colder, more ur­ban ma­te­rial like con­crete come into view. But con­crete can cre­ate a unique aes­thetic com­ple­mented with an air­tight build­ing en­ve­lope that can help reg­u­late in­door air tem­per­a­ture. Like wood, it of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to uti­lize re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als to cut down on waste. Con­crete is also in­cred­i­bly durable in ex­treme weather con­di­tions, and gen­er­ally more mold- and in­sect-resistant.
