11 wooden cabins for those living the natural life

When we talk about wood, there is only one way to describe it… completely noble!. Although many might consider it to be too basic and simple, the truth is that professionals know that it has so many properties for architecture and design that many projects born from this material become truly awesome.

That mainly because it is economical, aesthetically attractive, and its ability to adapt allows our imagination to be the only limit. In addition, it allows our houses to take a varied tone that can be from the rustic design all the way to a totally modern and just as inviting.

After viewing this list, we're sure you'll have gathered a few ideas to add to your cosy cabin.

1. Imposing structure

The first house is designed completely in wood, and look at the effect it makes. It has a traditional style but with a subtle modern touch. We can see the strips used in the guardrails and large square windows and it creates an interesting texture.

2. The most country

Traditional is what defines this cabin with colonial touches. Wood used throughout the range for window, stairs, doors and even furniture.

3. The most rustic

This is a traditional approach to a rustic cabin. The logs in the façade are the key to giving it its classic appearance. That's because the rustic design speaks of naturalness of materials. The imperfect wood and the streaks stained and worn by the passage of time make this cabin perfect for our rest.

4. The simplest

In this cabin, simplicity was the key. The cost of the construction was tight, yet this project offers more economical options than most large and luxurious houses with a much more comfortable atmosphere.

5. The most resistant

This cabin has a shape closer to modern. Smooth, simple designs without much decoration (more than the very nature of the material) were used in this project's execution. And the material used is incredibly weather-resistant.

6. A little more see-through

This home added a structure to the external surface that allows it to generate ventilation and have greater thermal care. It is the equivalent of clothes for us, in this case, acts as a second coating for the façade.

7. Decorative

This project has traditional aspects, such as the shape of its interior and even that of the windows. However, here the wood acts as a decoration. This cabin beautifully worked the wood to highlight it with vertical streaks. That in addition to giving simplicity helps the project look higher.

8. Close to your environment

The cabin sits on a small lot and is thought to be rather tiny itself. A modern touch reduced this home to a small space that speaks with the environment.

9. A little more solid

Wood can also be worked as a denser material in home building. As well as concrete for example, we work with large volumes. This home is an example–a hut that stands out for its size but seems to fuse with the forest because of the wood.

10. Different shapes

Here, the cabin shows us a greater emphasis on the openings and the search for light. Something that highlights the structure, but doesn't taking away the importance of the interior.

11. Riskier

This example comes with worked wood of all shapes and textures. But undoubtedly, although wood is one of the oldest materials, when it comes to the place to rest and our vacation, it's simply the best. Being versatile, comforting and attributing a homey touch for all styles–those are the unique characteristics of wood.
