If epic curb appeal sounds good to you, check out this small a-frame cabin plan. The design's large windows, spacious front porch, and private upper-level porch (see Bedroom 2) make it perfect for a view lot. What's more, its simple 32' wide and 40' deep footprint make it equally ideal for a small lot. Inside, note the two bedrooms and two baths, the open-concept main living area, the kitchen peninsula, and the loft, which could be used as a home office or secondary living space.
Check out the vaulted ceilings in the living room
Inside and out, this woodsy cabin house plan feels cozy and relaxed. Large windows offer scenic views (and bring the outdoors in), while the main living areas open to one another for easy flow. You’ll find a bedroom and a bathroom on the main level and a large master suite on the second. Other highlights we love: the handy mudroom and the loft area upstairs (explore these mudroom ideas from Good Housekeeping).
This design feels like a peaceful retreat
A spacious deck, a tall stone chimney, and sizeable windows make this cabin house plan a fun, peaceful retreat. Inside, a dramatic cathedral ceiling soars above the living/dining area. A fireplace warms the room, while a two-story wall of windows delivers plenty of natural light. The dining room shares a handy eating counter with the efficient kitchen. Don’t miss the first-floor master suite or the versatile loft on the second level (check out these loft conversion ideas from Real Homes).
Enjoy crisp fall mornings on the inviting front porch
Here’s a warm and welcoming cabin design that proves less is more.

Warm up next to the fireplace in the great room
