Cabin Life magazine asked me for some tips on designing a cabin.  My tips and a link to the article appear below:

  • Take advantage of light from all sides.  Often in a small cabin, light from windows placed on the north, south, east and west sides can reach the main space because there are few interior partitions.
  • Plan for storage and a mechanical room.  Closets and built-in storage can help keep clutter at bay so main spaces look neat and clean.
  • Include outdoor living spaces. Covered porches, decks, and patios help a small footprint live large.
  • Use the roof shape to add character.  Cathedral ceilings feel spacious while dormers create cozy nooks.
