Although construction of the Modern Cabin is complete, I will continue to post from time to time.
I've added three blogs to my blog list. The blogs recount the construction of other projects I have designed. The projects are located in Bristol and Stowe,Vermont and in Metaline Falls, Washington. Please take a look.
The kitchen (top middle) and bedroom alcove (bottom right) are open to the living/dining area. The entry (top right) can double as a home office or extra sleeping space. The total footprint is 782 square feet. The space feels much larger due to the open plan and many windows.
East and south facing windows bring in lots of light. So much light comes in from the windows on all sides that electric light is not necessary during the day. The suspended ceiling fixture casts light down and up where it is reflected off the wood ceiling.
Earlier this year we selected a wood stove that we liked the looks of; it also fit our budget. The price at the time reflected the fact that the stove was discontinued and would no longer be available in the U.S. After much looking we have found what we were told is the last one in the country. We look forward to installing the Scan 60 wood stove soon.
The kitchen cabinets are installed and awaiting appliances. The 30" under counter refrigerator/freezer will be located on the right, the 24" range and hood on the left. The post and beam frame the kitchen alcove and echo the posts and beams at the porch on the exterior.
Both the interior and exterior window trim are narrow. The ash trim on the inside frames the pine windows. The red cedar trim on the outside frames the fiberglass cladding on the windows and together with the siding and roof overhang creates interesting shadows. One interior wall will be clad in ash with a profile that mimics the exterior siding.
