RENOVATION IDEAS FOR YOUR LITTLE CABIN
What Can You Do To Enhance Your Cabin, Without Taking Too Much Away From It?
So you’ve found yourself a cheap, run-down cabin and you don’t know where to start with the renovations. Well don’t fret, here’s an architect who goes by the name of Alan Maskin who pretty much rebuilt most of an old cabin he bought a lot of the things he did to the place can be worth considering.
He noticed that the attic was cramped but it still had well-proportioned windows, so he decided to rebuild the attic to have higher ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows which turned it into a bedroom with wide open space and a magnificent view of the outside. The design of the interior is minimal with wooden walls giving it a warm and cozy atmosphere. In the end, he ended up making his once cramped cabin into a comfortable home where he himself has been living full-time now.
So when it comes to renovating your little home don’t be afraid expand your living spaces for a more comfortable experience, while still keeping in mind that you shouldn’t go too far into your renovating because this is when you should consider letting the house’s innate charm speak for itself rather than drowning it in too much remodeling.
The original exterior walls became interior, and the front porch became a long dining room and home office. A small first-floor terrace off the bedroom nestles into the foliage of an old maple tree. “This, and the former porch below, have views of two gardens: a shade garden that I added under a large tree, and a sun garden filled with hardy plants I saw from visits to tropical areas,” Maskin says.
