These small homes blew us away with their functional yet fun designs
This lakeside cabin, designed by FabCab, is only 550 square feet, and yet it seems much larger. The layout has an open floor plan so that the sense of space is maximized and every square inch is fully utilized. Open areas above beams and walls allow the whole ceiling to be visible, which makes the space feel bigger. Large windows not only let in passive solar warmth, but also provide ample natural light and stunning views of the nearby lake. Compact, yet well designed spaces, appliances, and features allow for efficient and comfortable living for one or two people.
