~ The Cabin ~

We've closed!!!! A look at our finished home away from
home. The front of our cabin at twilight.
View from the living room looking into the dining room.
(I use these terms loosely since the cabin is just over 1,000 sq ft)
I love the massive fireplace rocked with local stone.
Standing in the living room looking into the loft.
Built in bunks along the back wall on the top left.
Storage closet on the top far right, our bedroom is just
out of the photo at the base of the stairs.
Kitchen with open shelving peeking around the corner.
The fridge goes behind that white wall and all of the
mechanical, etc is hidden under the stairs.
Our dining room. My blue-grey stain color choice
turned out better than I even imagined.
I'm SO glad that I had the professionals do the floors
instead of trying to do it myself.
The kitchen. Open shelving, sliding door to cover
w/d or fridge, depending on which we are using at
the time. Commercial sink. I'm oiling the wood countertops
to protect them. This is a before oil shot.
Our bedroom. Sliding door to the bathroom
and another where I'm standing that closes our
room off to the living room. 
Downstairs bath. Custom sink stand, claw foot
tub. Pretty much my dream bathroom.
Upstairs loft. Built in bunks, each with their own
caged light. Boys bath with sliding door.
Lights on. A peek at the rebar and barn wood railing.
Blue grey pine floors. Native stone fireplace, super
sized and with an organic hearth. Perfect for sitting
on the floor in front of a fire.
Rebar and barn wood railing
Built in bunks, waiting for their headboard dividers 
Loft space and storage closet
Cabin kitchen 
Stacking washer and dryer fits
behind this sliding door
Antler chandelier, beams, huge fireplace
Living room at night.

We are SO thrilled with every single facet of the cabin. It's beautiful, even more so than we imagined.  The blue grey floors changed the entire feel of the cabin. It's simple and perfect for spending family time in. At 1,000 square feet, only the basics will fit but that's just what we wanted. The sliding doors help to keep every square inch usable.
