A rustic cabin that is meant for a weekend cottage or a vacation home, p. 85
A RUSTIC CABIN THAT IS MEANT FOR A WEEK- END COTTAGE OR A VACATION HOME THIS is another example of the cottages built at Craftsman Farms and is some- what larger than the stone cabin shown Ofl page 8i, as it con- tains a bathroom and a re- cessed porch which serves as an open air dining room, in addition to the living room, two bedrooms and kitchen provided in the smaller cottage. The walls are sheathed with boards eight or ten inches wide and seven- eighths of an inch thick. A truss of hewn timber in each gable. projecting a foot and a half from the face of the wall, not only gives add- ed support to the roof, but forms a (lecorative feature that relieves the extreme simplicity of the construc- tion. The casement win- dows are all hung so they will swing outwar(l and are mostly small and set rather high in the Wall. At the ends of the building these casements are protected by simple shutters, each one made of two wide hoards with either heart shaped or circular piercing. These solid shut- ters provide ample shelter in severe weather. Published in The Craftsman, November, IQoR. FRONT VIEW OF CABIN, SHOWING DECORATIVE USE OF TRUSS IN THE GABLE. FLOOR PLAN.
