Newest Cabin Around
Just opened is Sawyer’s Cabin located 15 minutes Southeast of Asheville. We are proud to present it as a custom built work of carpentry art with 7 different species of wood on the interior. It takes an experienced carpenter to know which woods are right for the job and we had two of them on this project. In fact, Jeff is the owner, the sawyer, the carpenter and the designer of this one-of-a-kind cabin.
“I wanted to make it cozy for a couple and started with a 16′ by 20′ footprint but it was a little tight so I ended up with a 20’by 24′ giving a comfortable 480 sq ft.”
He added a loft with a shed roof giving it another 160 square feet. This is no ordinary small space. It has a gourmet kitchen with track lighting showing off the full stainless refrigerator, 4 burner gas stove, a farm house sink, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Oh, did we mention Silestone countertops and an island bar? This cabin was built to last.
It’s so well insulated, you could heat it with a candle! Besides that it has passive solar south facing windows that give natural light and warmth during the winter.
Back to the woods used: yellow poplar for the loft siding (it has beautiful purple and green streaks in it); yellow pine for the loft ladder rails, white pine for the ladder steps and the rest of the walls; white oak trim around the windows; red oak floors and cabinets with mountain laurel handles; and thick 6″x8″ western red cedar beams. On the porch are redwood shakes.
So if you are a back-to-nature gal and gent, you must check out this newest cabin around and smell the wood!
