Cabin plans with porch

Virginia, elevaed wood cabin with a loft and a front porch is very similar to another of our cabin designs, Candy. The difference is in dimensions and some details. You enter this cozy micro house from the front, through little stairs located in the middle of façade leading to front porch, from where you have access directly into center of the cabin. It is a quite spacious square room with few small windows at different heights on three sides and full height window connected with door on the front façade, which provides not only access into the interior but also direct connection with the porch and beautiful views of the surroundings. This wall is also the tallest one, leaving space for several smaller windows, which are placed as a grid in a loft in such a way that majority of front façade is covered in glass. The loft is approximately half of size of the ground floor, which is enough to create a comfortable sleeping or relaxing space and can be access through ladder on the side. Thanks to this you gain more space on the main floor to use for everyday activities, as a socializing place with small kitchenette and stove.

Elevated cabin Virginia, named after famous pin-up girl Virginia Bruce, is a timber frame one room structure with a front porch and a loft. It has one way sloped roof, so called shed roof, also made of timber frame, and it is elevated on simple pillar foundations fixed to the ground with ground screws. This creates a free space underneath the timber structure, which could be eventually used as a storage place for example for wood, garden tools, sport equipment or anything else you wish. If you feel like your dream wooden cabin should be slightly different, feel free to adjust our pdf plans according to your preferences or use them as an inspiration for your own design, we always encourage doing things your way!

Does it come with the wood? Or is it just instructions on how to make it?
