By |2021-09-28T19:43:48+00:00July 28th, 2021||

A small footprint with a big impression, the Hubert A-Frame takes its cues from Mother Nature. With a color palette that blends into the forest unless you are right up on it, the birch wood interior also blurs seamlessly into the views beyond. Standing tall with a compact 250 square foot interior, the thing that sticks with you is the carefully crafted use of space. Design elements are crucial in creating a functional modern cabin. The kitchen features size appropriate appliances, including a fridge and Cuisinart double induction cooktop with compatible stoneware pan set. The countertop doubles as a kitchen table, with stools to sit and eat, and hinges up to the ceiling for more space when needed. Walls of windows bring in loads of natural light.
