Brightbuilt Homes has been constructing beautiful modular homes in Maine since 2005. Modular home prices in Maine reflect the somewhat more expensive NorthEast market, reflected here: this tiny but tasteful, fully customized net-zero energy barn runs about $280 per square foot.
Large windows punctuate the north elevation to pull views of the the water and landscape indoors.
Gently sloping roofs reach towards the water to the west, and the mountains to the east, reacting to the scenery adjacent to it.
The home fully embraces the natural setting, reaching out and embracing the natural wonders.
The two, season-specific wings of the L-shaped plan are separated by a covered breezeway.
Originally built in 1974 as a kit home, the A-Frame was constructed with cedar siding and metal roofing. The house faces east toward the water.
A look at the exterior of the cabin.
The home's modular design is composed of an outer shell and an interior core unit that contains essential living functions, such as a bed, bathroom, and a small kitchenette.
The 31-foot cabin includes a four-foot spire.
Set on an 80-square-foot irregular pentagonal base, and built with 100-percent recycled materials, this cabin is 17 feet long, 11 feet tall, and seven feet wide at its widest point. It has a small, 30-square-foot loft.

"I used the same roofing concept on this cabin as I did with the second, covering it in metal, chicken wire and moss," says Witzling.
The roof insulation is rigid, waterproof material that Witzling placed on the outside in order to leave the roof framing exposed on the inside. The metal roof has a layer of chicken wire, with moss harvested from the property stuffed into it to create a weathered-looking green roof.
This cabin has a 100-square-foot lower level and a 70-square-foot loft. The cabin has a shed roof that rises as high as 22 feet.
Cabin designer and builder Jacob Witzling found inspiration in his architect father and childhood fairy tales.
Witzling, a second-grade teacher, makes most of his cabins for friends and family.
Jason Witzling first fell in love with cabin life when he was 16 years old.
A timber-land bridge connects the cabin to a decked terrace.
Set at an elevation of nearly 4,000 feet, La Dacha is lifted into an evergreen canopy.
Backed up to the foothills of the Andes, La Dacha offers fantastic opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, as well as skiing in the winter.
At night, the circular window glows like the moon and illuminates the lower floors much like a light box.
In summer, the living area is surrounded by grass that covers the terrain. Yet, once winter comes, this same area appears to be nestled within a blanket of snow.
The home has warm interiors throughout and boasts a minimalist, cabin-like aesthetic.
The black roof balances upon its rectangular base of light pinewood, creating a dramatic contrast between dark and light.
After: As part of the redesign, the exterior of the cabin was painted black.
Passive design principles were utilized in the siting of the highly-insulated cabin. Deep eaves protect the interior from hot summer sun, while a verandah overhang optimizes solar gains in winter.
The exterior combines recycled brick, radial sawn timber, and galvanized roof sheeting. "Materials were selected to meet the clients’ brief that the house fit within the cognitive idea of an old shed," explain the architects.
The clients requested the design of the cabin and shed to appear as if the buildings had been weathering over time with the site.
The chiflonera leads to the entrance of the cabin.
Silvertop Ash shiplap siding clads the facade.
The Getaway Cabins start at $125 a night.
The triangular floor-to-ceiling window, which features seven glass pieces, allows natural daylight to illuminate the interiors.
Even though the house can be connected to the city grid, it also has solar panels that collect energy from the sun and can produce its own energy.
The old property was oriented toward the east and sat parallel to the lake. This new cabin looks toward a restored cinderblock sauna to the south and is set perpendicular to the nearby lake.
The upper volume extends over a small patio.
Koto prefabs can be reconfigured to accommodate client needs and the constraints of the site. "They are designed to last a lifetime and can even be relocated to a totally different site years later," explain the designers.
Outside nooks provide storage for firewood.
Even though each cabin boasts a large glazed facade, they can be oriented so to retain plenty of private.
Interiors include concealed storage walls to maximize the floor space and help maintain the minimalist aesthetic.
"They are a sculptural interpretation of the small buildings that you see across Europe, from Bothys to Alpine huts and Norwegian Hytte. These small pitched-roof buildings are an integral part of the landscape and provide warmth, shelter, and an opportunity to fully immerse in nature. That is the heart of the ethos at Koto," explain the designers.
Taking inspiration from the tradition of the Danish sommerhus, each volume is a simple, gabled form, clad in dark gray-stained cedar siding with standing-seam metal roofs that mirror the vertical grooves in a similar shade.
"With both sliding doors open, the two decks connect seamlessly through the building, dramatically changing the sense of scale, space, and connection to the site."
Site placement was a lengthy process as the architects searched to optimize seclusion and spectacular views. Specialists, including ecologist Mark Wapstra, were brought on board to survey the site and ensure minimal landscape impact.

“The cabin is elevated from the ground, and has slopes on the terraces and two floors. The slopes blends with the natural terrain and help reduce costs in foundations. The roof also has a steep slope to protect it from snowfall in the winter,” explains Lagos.
The 500-square-foot cabin and adjacent shed are 100 percent off-grid, with water, sewer, and electrical systems in place to support these buildings and any future development.
Wheelhaus founder and CEO Jamie Mackay creates prefabs with the same quality and durability of the log cabins he grew up with, while also incorporating his values of green production and modern design. Although it takes about four months to construct his prefabricated properties, it takes about a week for the home to be delivered, and then three to five days for the house to be set up on site.
Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club is spread out across 8 acres of cardamom plantations.
Above the living lounge, the 50-square-foot loft faces a window that frames striking views of the tree canopies.
The CABN model is also available for purchase, and can be installed on your own remote site.
