The Porch Cabin - By Dale Mulfinger SALA Architects

I really like the design of this Cottage/Cabin and I think Mr. Mulfinger absolutely nailed the look and feel of a turn of the century Craftsman/Victorian summer vacation cabin without adding to many modern gewgaws which would spoil it. You can purchase study and construction plans and look at the interior photos, elevations and floor plans at the link below.

  1. I discovered Dale Mulfinger's Porch Cabin some time ago and have pined after it ever since but felt that if I did ever have the opportunity to build a cabin retreat it might be a little more than I needed. I recently found this plan by Andrew Sheldon which I felt incorporated some of the strengths of the Porch Cabin on a little more modest scale (and perhaps a more modest price).
