One day, I dream of a little tiny modern house in the woods…

Nick and I often daydream about our little cabin in the woods that we’d love to own someday.  I’m not sure how this obsession started necessarily, but it grew over time with vacations to places like Eagles Mere, PA; Jackson Hole, WY; Maine; Hudson, NY;  and Bear Mountain.  The little modern pre-fab that we want to build has yet to be fully fleshed out in terms of what it we’d like to build or even where we’d like to build it.  But I know that one day…we’ll figure out the how, when, and budget.  This nebulous style of cabin that we’d like to live in is what I loosely refer to the style as “modern rustic.”  I am telling you all this because today I found some beautiful inspiration of what may be close to perfect.

Isn’t this little cabin to die for?! I mean, we’d probably need to modify a few things. Such as where is the bathroom? I’d want a real fireplace vs a wood-burning stove, and perhaps a slightly larger kitchen and deck. But otherwise, I love it’s tiny footprint. It remindds me of another one of my favorite little houses, the Shot Trot via Hometta.  This one is designed for warmer climates, but again…perhaps could be modified for mountain retreats.

Does anyone have any other inspiration that you’d like to shared? I’m sure that I’ll be collecting images of my dream modern/rustic cabin for quite a long time before we’ll ever get to build one! :-)
