OverviewNow in paperback, Modern Cabin presents twenty-two contemporary cabins in a variety of locales across North America. Today's cabin speaks to a sophisticated design aesthetic-even if it has a rustic facade. It incorporates up-to-date materials and state-of-the-art techniques, including prefabrication. It is built to last and is often built green. But despite its dramatic shift from the log cabin of yesteryear, the modern cabin at its core hasn't changed: it is still that quiet place where reflection and recreation thankfully edge out the duties of everyday life. Michelle Kodis presents cabins ranging from a tiny outbuilding rescued from the ravages of time to a high-tech dwelling equipped with smart-house technology. Modern Cabin is your ultimate guide to bringing to life your own personal haven. Michelle Kodis is the author of Blueprint Small: Creative Ways to Live With Less, Blueprint Affordable: How to Build a Beautiful House Without Breaking the Bank, Blueprint Remodel: Tract Home Transformations That Turn Everyday to Extraordinary, Ultimate Backyard: Inspired Ideas for Outdoor Living, and Ultimate Outdoor Kitchens: Inspired Designs and Plans.
