22’x32′ Classic American Cabin

This post contains affiliate links.

Dubbed the “Classic American Cabin” by the architects, these are building plans for a lovely 700-square-foot cabin with a 200-square-foot standing loft. There’s a first-floor bedroom off of the great room, as well as a laundry room, and a full bathroom.

A sturdy staircase leads up to the loft, which is open to the first floor, where you can fit a twin-sized reading nook and a queen-sized bed. A wall of French doors on the front of the home lets in plenty of natural light. Could you live in this home?
