Spread across three different levels the overhang of each higher level provides ample shade for the balcony and outdoor living spaces on the level below. A gorgeous backyard with an impressive garden becomes an extension of the living area indoors thanks to the seamless connectivity offered by glass doors.
Supported on four steel beams the three levels of the cabin offer wonderful views of the surrounding landscape from their elevated position. The lower level is used as a carport and a utility room while the top level features the large living area with kitchen and dining.

Ray Kappe fans will have an extra appreciation for the series of LivingHomes designed by the legendary architect. Available in a variety of LEED Silver-level models the airy abodes start at 1690-square-feet and feature generous outdoor living spaces.
Cleverly placed wooden surfaces and furnishings such as the timeless Cherner bar stools usher in some much needed warmth and textural contrast. A fabulous modern kitchen and a dashing dining space complete the lower level along with a pool house that opens up towards the backyard.
The transition between the traditional stone wall structure on the lower level and the contemporary wooden and glass edifice seems both intriguing and appealing giving the home an exceptional identity of its own.
It is the middle floor that houses the two bedrooms and bathrooms along with a lovely entry. The prefabricated cabin wastes as little as possible both in terms of time and materials while matching most other mountain getaways in terms of comfort and aesthetics.
