Based on the classic A-frame – but wrapped in a cozy double-insulated blanket – Margaree is a striking and simple layout for a cottage, rental, or year-round home.
Oriented for south sun in the living space, the great room offers an expansive double height space with a spiral staircase to the loft bedroom above. The front entrance is to the north, leading into a full bath, second bedroom with walk in closet, and plenty of storage space including laundry, mechanical and pantry.
The living space expands into the outdoors with large sliding glass doors, while the sharply peaked roof reaches southward to create extra cover for outdoor living and optimal south shading. Your cabin in the woods awaits!
