Nestled in Cloudland Station, a Southern Living Inspired Community in Georgia, this cabin caught our eye.

Architect: Durham Crout
1,600 square feet
Plan Name: 
Cloudland Cottage #1894;

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.

    There IS a closet on the main floor. Wall space upstairs looks fine for a cottage this size.

    Not a very livable design. Perhaps OK for a cottage in the woods, but no closet on the main floor and no room for washer/dryer. Also not enough wall space in upstairs bedroom

    Much more imaginative than most new designs but a simple metal roof might be more appropriate.
