i need a cabin to get away to. like this one.

Owning land usually isn't a problem. But when your land has some of the most stunning views in Canada, a lot of people want to come spend weekends. In order to escape the guests, a couple in Ontario had to build a getaway cabin on their own property. And thank goodness they did--now I get to look at pictures of it, wish I had one, and run down to QuikTrip to buy lottery tickets. What started as a little annoyance for the couple has turned into a completely modern structure that still fits in with its natural environment. And its rustic feel is going to get better with age, as the exterior wood will turn grey. Designed by Taylor Smyth Architects, this one room cabin has won awards and is proof that big things can come in small packages--190 square feet.
