Rustic CabinStarksboro, Vermont

At the edge of a meadow overlooking the Green Mountains, this small cabin’s simple forms combine with rustic elements to create distinctive guest quarters which include a bedroom, living space, kitchenette, bath and loft. The cabin, designed specifically for the client’s use, serves not only as a retreat but also as a pottery studio. This multi purpose use makes for an efficient use of space and a small footprint. Green building practices, local materials and sophisticated detailing are integrated in this energy efficient retreat. A plaster finish adorns the super insulated walls while salvaged pine boards conceal radiant heat in the floors. Railings crafted of beech trees and twigs by a local artisan add interest both inside and out.
