From the outside, this wonderful off-grid home certainly looks like a quaint cabin, with dovetail logs defining the first floor and shingle siding in the loft gables. The screen porch on the south side is the prominent feature of the rear of the cabin, and is well situated to take in the wonderful mountain views on this side of the house. The south roof also hosts solar panels, providing the cabin's electrical power. The home centers around the great room that defines most of the space in the cabin. The kitchenette space is compact but fully functioning with a sink, range/oven and an efficient refrigerator. The bedrooms were designed to sleep 12, so bunk beds are an essential feature of the three bunk rooms. There are built-ins for storage at the head of the bottom bed and the risers on the steps to the upper bunk have built in storage.
