This recently completed rustic cabin is located in Lincoln, Vermont. The south facing cabin is nestled in the woods on a plateau over looking the river below and the Green Mountains beyond. Built on a remote site, the cabin is reached by a 75′ long pedestrian bridge across the New Haven River.  Access to the cabin is by a steep footpath and a more gradual woods road.  All of the building material were hauled across the river and up the slope.  Both the design and construction of the cabin were carefully executed to make the most of the unique site and a tight budget. With a foot print of just over 600 square feet, the small cabin of sustainable design makes efficient use of resources and building materials. Trees that were cleared for the cabin are used in the round log timber framed porch.  The exterior siding and shutters are made of local rough sawn pine.
