Free House Plan: Little Lake Cabin!

When it comes to my specific spot on the map in Minnesota when folks talk about going “up north” or to their “lake cabin” or up “to the woods” well, that’s where we live. There really isn’t any “going up to the cabin” for Joe and I, that would just be silly, we literally live where a lot of people think of as a “vacation destination” of course it rarely feels like that! But, it is the truth, everywhere from us and north is pretty much it tourist central and national forests. We live close to a little town of only about 3,000 people but, in the summertime, it is estimated our population here explodes to over 10,000!! A lot of folks don’t live here year around and we even have a certain amount of businesses here that aren’t even OPEN year around. A lot of people who work in “the cities” dream of moving up to where we are someday and that’s what this little free house plan is devoted to: The Lake Cabin!

Regardless of whether we live here year around or not I still have a little longing in my heart for our own getaway on a lake somewhere. Seriously though, just a little one room place of about 500 square feet with an out house out back that not a single human being knows the location of except Joe and I. A spot on a lake where the only way to reach it is either by boat or four wheeler. Yup, I could totally dig that!

But I digress, this is certainly a little bit nicer then one room and an outhouse! This little place instead could be a year around home easily but it is only 1,000 square feet and, really, for a lot of folks, would be pretty tight for more then two people. But that really is the point of a lake cabin: it can be tiny because all you’re going to use it for is sleeping! After that you’re going to be swimming, fishing, sun bathing, hiking, exploring etc.

For such a small home the living space is enormous and the kitchen would be enviable for anyone in any size home. Not to mention the two covered decks (maybe screen in the back deck to keep out the mosquitoes?) are just plain awesome for outdoor living. I love that the guest bedroom is on the other end of the house and most of the space is devoted to living and the master here. I did an interesting thing by putting an extra toilet in a little space off the laundry room/closet. Because the laundry room includes a sink I decided to utilize the space a little better then putting in a second full size bathroom. Of course there is room though to add a shower here if the builder wanted to.

Thanks for coming by and checking it out!
