My other favorite idea for my future Michigan cabin is to build more than one small utilitarian buildings. It would be great to build a small house with one bedroom, bath, kitchen and living space connected to a deck and then possibly add a small separate structure with another bedroom and bath and connect via the deck. There are lots of pretty Scandinavian examples. Wood siding and metal roofs. Via contemporist
Or these lake flato designed corrugated metal babies. I don’t prefer the all metal exterior but the idea is there and simple and modern.
