Nestled in Cloudland Station, a Southern Living Inspired Community in Georgia, this cabin caught our eye.
Architect: Durham Crout
Size: 1,600 square feet
Plan Name: Cloudland Cottage #1894; houseplans.southernliving.com
Why We Love It:
Designed with long family weekends in mind, life at this Chickamauga, Georgia, cabin centers around one big living room and the nearly 200-square-foot back porch. Upstairs, architect Durham Crout tucked in two bunk areas for guests. On the outside, he took punchy design liberties on this mountain cabin: He stuck with the typical boxy shape but raised the roofline, upgraded asphalt shingles to slate, and swapped out logs for larger than usual, 1-by-6 clapboards.
The Wow Factor:
That curvaceous white trimwork! Against the blue clapboard exterior, the front entry’s rounded moldings and white spindles jump out like icing on a cake.
