the RavenPlus


An oasis of light and space

-Designed for code+ insulation levels

-Can be built on any type of foundation: piers, slab-on-grade, crawl-space, full basement

-Overall footprint (including the screened porch and open decks): 32 x 37 feet

The RavenPlus is the distillation of many cabin wish-lists: the wide-open feel, fantastic light and great proportions of the RavenHouse Original combined with the comforts of a full bathroom & kitchen and an easy set of stairs to the loft bedroom.

The warmth of the centrally placed woodstove reaches through the entire space; the skylights & windows offer a strong visual connection to the land and sky around you, providing an abundance of natural light and fantastic views. Despite its very compact footprint, there is an astounding 800+ square feet of interior living space.

The undivided double height space allows the interior areas to connect and borrow space from one another. For example, the bed loft would feel cramped if it were fully enclosed; the open volume also makes the living area below feel much larger.

The RavenPlus is equally suited as a spacious weekend getaway cabin or as a compact, full-time home.
