This design came about as a collection of ideas filed away over the years that I’d been wanting to test out. As well, I wanted to build it alone, to enjoy the freedom to maintain my own pace and have full control of the process, so I drew up the plans always thinking about straightforward & buildable methods for working solo. I built the original - footings to final finishes - in 4 months; more hands should make the process even quicker.
The + bathroom version includes a Materials List, all exterior elevations, floor plans, roof plan, pier-and-beam foundation plan, wall and roof sections, and framing details. Also included in the + bathroom version is a suggested kitchen layout and the window and door schedule of recommended sizes.

"Hi Pete,

Been a fan of the original design for years now and looking to start my own journey in Maine…I think you've really managed to hit the nail on the head with the design bringing the cabin into the 21st century but maintaining the essence of what makes a cabin a cabin. TOP WORK!"
