Cabin Essentials: A Beautiful View

Building a dream cabin is no small feat, but ultimately the most important features that will allow you to make the most of your summer home are fairly straightforward. Arguably one of the most important (and satisfying) components is a breathtaking view.

Rain or shine, a cottage's view is your biggest and best reminder that you've managed to escape the city. Big windows, southern exposures, and a wide frontage are all key elements to building a fantastic vista.
As explored previously, views factor into nearly every room in the house, whether it's the great room or the guesthouse.That said, when planning out your cabin, most architects and contractors will recommend putting more utilitarian somewhere that doesn't command a large slice of your view. Examples of these rooms might be a laundry room, mud area, or bathroom.
