Cabin Design Ideas...
Gateway to Freedom!

Ideas for cabin design are as wide and varied as the people who escape to these special places. Retreats from the hectic pace of today's busy lives, they provide us with the freedom to get away from it all  --  at least for awhile -- and an opportunity to commune with nature!

           Spectacular Mountain Vista

The word,  "cabin,"  means many dif-
ferent things to many different people. For  some,  it means a simple,  rustic stone and hand-hewn log hideaway . . . . . . .


Accented with posts and balustrades of naturally formed  branches,  it  re-
minds  us  of  the  Adirondack Great Camps of yesteryear.

For others,  a quaint fishing or hunting cabin nestled alongside a peaceful lake provides the perfect getaway.    Constructed of rugged stones gath-
ered  on  site,  these picturesque dwellings evoke the pioneer spirit of our ancestors and provide a base camp for recreational hunting and fishing ex-
peditions with family and friends.

Still others prefer a Shingle Style cottage with  a  broad  veranda,


perched high on a grassy knoll,


with sweeping vistas to the deep
blue sea . . . . . . .

while others enjoy the fresh scent of pine and the  majestic  snow-capped peaks . . . . . . .

from  within  the  warmth  and  ambi-
ance  of  a  mountain  retreat  beau-
tifully handcrafted from  large  round logs.

Log Cabin Plans

The possibilities for cabin design and  design  ideas  are  virtually  limitless! Though not as conventional as the foregoing examples, why not "go green" and make use of a decaying structure whose  primary  function  has  been relegated to the past?    For  instance,  the  carriage house -- a relic from another  era  --  makes an excellent retreat when updated for the present. Often spacious and possessing great architectural appeal,  as shown in the "before" and "after" examples pictured below, they are readily adaptable for human habitation.    An abundance of angles from a combination of hipped, gabled and dormered rooflines -- along with a crowning cupola --  provides as much visual interest and appeal on the inside as on the exterior!

Boathouses  --  both past and present  --  also make an  excellent  choice for a retreat.  Once again, their architectural appeal and adaptability often equal that of the carriage house. In addition, their close proximity to water offers endless recreational opportunities!
