A Modern Cabin, the Kids Room

Everything is still in the works as we renovate our cabin. We moved up to about 860 square feet allowing us to grow from a one bedroom to a three. We're starting the girls room first which was the the old dinning area, very slowly it's transforming into a bedroom. Refinished old cabinets with fresh paint and brass handles. White, grey and gold are the set tones, cork floors and a bright Persian rug warm it up for the girls.

 It's still lacking trim, floors and two more walls enclosing it in. We plan on using pocket doors with frosted glass to utilize floor space and allow light to pass through.

Modern Custom Bed for a Tiny One Bedroom Home

Our cabin is currently 640 sqft for a family of 6. Custom beds became a necessity for utilizing all space in this one bedroom home. We designed and built this out of maple plywood to fit toys, clothes and a custom made Japanese futon mattress. We anchored it into the wall to allow for a more unique design. I added in some glow in the dark stars for good measure.


Other side is custom loft with rock climbing ladder.
