Step yourself across the bridge, marveling at the captivating roof before heading down the entrance stair that bisects this island cabin.  Enter, nestle in, and enjoy.

Nestled itself into the surrounding landscape, the cabin follows the topography of the ground below, the floor raising and lowering as it spirals around a central hearth that sports built in furniture.  Warm wood frames it all, with a wood scrim wrapping on all sides (even above!) that filters light like the leaves on a tree.  At night, the cabin glows as a lantern.

Day or night, a cozy little retreat.  Nicely done.
