Plan Description

The cabin is the tiny house version of the floating modern box. Raising the cabin on a pier foundation eliminates the need for a costly concrete slab and allows the landscape to flow underneath making this design ideal for sloped and uneven sites. The cabin can also be easily adapted to modular prefab building for delivery to remote locations. With the correct solar orientation a passive solar design can be achieved utilizing the deck canopy and slated wing walls to shade during hot summer months. The large deck and bank of sliding glass doors expand the interior living space to support a interior/outdoor lifestyle making the cabin excellent for relaxing and enjoying the view.
