- Large 3-piece bathroom
- Full kitchenette
- Loft bedroom with stair access

- Can be built on any type of foundation

The Beartrap Cabin was originally designed for a remote piece of Nova Scotia coastline, as the owner’s weekend getaway space. Windows throughput bring in natural light, views and summer air; the big patio door opens onto the covered deck for a seamless flow between inside and out, providing shelter and comfort on the wild and craggy site.

Designed to be a fully self contained dwelling, this lofted cabin sleeps 3, with a full kitchenette and a large bathroom with laundry. It is fully-insulated for maximum comfort in all seasons and efficient heating; add a wood stove for the ultimate cool-weather cosiness. 

The detailed construction drawings include pier & beam foundation details, floor plans, exterior elevations, framing details, wall, floor and roof sections, and a window & door schedule.
