In plan, the Arbor Breeze Cabin #2 is based on the traditional dog-trot house layout that is common in the South. Living spaces and sleeping spaces are separated by a covered breezeway that functions as the entry and main outdoor living space. A double-sided indoor-outdoor fireplace extends the rental season into the cooler months by providing a warm place to gather. A butterfly roofline provides the opportunity to take a vacation negative, rain, and celebrate it by creating an “event” when it rains. From the sound of rain hitting the corrugated metal roof to the splashing of water from the scupper into the river rock basin below to the small steam that terminates into the pond, the procession of water from roof to pond is an experience that can be enjoyed by all.
Like Cabin #1, a tool shed more budget-friendly option was ultimately selected.
