The Wedge Design
The ‘Wedge’ design which we feature on this page has an angled roof, that starts low above the bedroom and builds to 17 feet in the living room. Trapezoidal windows grow similarly from back to front, offering natural light while maintaining privacy. The front of the cabin is almost entirely glass with a large sliding glass door opening onto a private deck.
The bedrooms are sized to fit a king size bed with two side tables and linen lamp style sconces. A set of four drawers and an under-counter hanging closet support a butcher-block counter top, which also serves as a desk. A spot for a 42-inch Internet accessible HD flat screen television is provided so you could mount one above the desk.
The kitchen/living room was designed to offer both comfort and functionality. The small kitchen features a two-burner cook top, an under counter refrigerator, a microwave, a dishwasher, a sink, concrete countertops and modern rustic cabinetry.
This picture shows a large bomber leather sofa, two cowhide ottomans, two barn wood side tables, custom made wrought iron lamps and railroad cart coffee tables make up living room furnishings. These don’t come with the standard build but are displayed to show you how you could setup your own decor. A mini-high efficiency gas burning fireplace warms the room. Above the fireplace you could choose to add a second 42 inch HD flat-screen television.
The bathrooms are also small but functional. Heavy duty glass showers, Kohler toilets and custom vanities with concrete countertops/sinks and quartzite floors, combine to produce very well appointed facilities
