If you're like us, and have been dreaming about how to score your own rustic getaway after discovering Hopkins & Porter's Modern Cabin Renovation, now's your chance to make it a reality. Becky from Design Public pointed us toward another awesome log cabin redo in Virginia, and it's for sale!
• 1 Built in 1783, this house was definitely showing it's age before architect, Dan Zimmerman, came to the rescue.
• 2 This photograph was taken for Cottage Living. We love the addition of the skylights which flood the cozy lofted bedroom with light and accentuate the dreamy exposed beams.
• 3 The ceiling beams and exposed logs in the walls are original to the cabin.
• 4 One of the coolest updates is the 8' x 5' glass floor inlay which allows light to filter from the sunny upper level down into the dining room below.
• 5 The upstairs bathroom, a modern industrial take on the traditional outhouse, is another incredible addition.
• 6 The kitchen is updated simply with basic modern conveniences.
• 7 The new modern exterior is a far cry from its dilapidated former self, but it still fits the serene rustic setting. We love the unexpected burst of color that the new yellow front door offers.
• 8 The property also offers a 200 ft square foot shed built with salvaged siding from the original cabin. It would make a great studio in addition to providing extra storage.
• 9 The house sits on 3.3 acres of unadulterated Winchester, Virginia wilderness complete with a stream and tree-lined gravel road.
• 10 The colorful bathroom. Personally, this is my least favorite part of the house. It's a little jarring compared to the more restrained use of color throughout the rest of the house. But maybe that's a good thing? What's your take?
