Piecing Together Our Adirondack Cabin

We've been working on a plan for the small cabin up on our land in the Adirondacks.  Here's a plan of the main level.  The part of this plan I'm excited about the most is....the oversized screened in porch on the front of the house.  From inside you'll be able to get onto the porch from the 2 french doors and those same doors will provide us with a lovely view of the mountains.  We plan on using that outdoor space/room a whole lot.   Do you notice inside there's a window to the left of the stair landing?  We're planning in the future to make that window into a door that will lead into a master bedroom on the main floor but that'll have to wait until retirement days.  If you have any suggestions or ideas I would love to hear them.  Nothing is set in stone yet.  That's the beauty of the planning phase.  Right now....we're working on the upstairs plan.  I'll show you that plan when we get it drawn up and then onto drawing the plan for the walk out basement.  It's a small structure but we're trying to make it functional but still roomy.  If you'd like to see all of the posts concerning the process of  making our dream cabin into a  reality...please click onto 'Cabin/Cottage' under labels on the sidebar.

This is going to be lovely Amy! Is that a fireplace between the two french doors? If so, will it be double sided? Or would that not be practical from a heat loss standpoint? I love that huge screened porch, I imagine you will spend ALOT of time out there. I'm so happy for you that you are seeing this dream come to fruition! Kathy

Hi Amy,
I am so jealous. A cabin with a view of the mountains sounds like heaven to me! I am so excited for you and look forward to seeing all the progress. Make sure to keep us all posted.

How exciting. I think it is great that your are making plans for future expansion in the planning stages. I would love to have a cabin or farmhouse one day. I'll be keeping an eye out for updates.
