A super-efficient RAIS wood-burning stove in the southwest corner of the living room heats the entire cabin "when it's really going," Renée says, and a ceiling fan and cross-ventilation—opposing windows are everywhere—eliminate the need for air conditioning. The house is also prewired for a 3-kW solar array to supply all the electricity. Snug, practical, and flexible, Big Cabin/Little Cabin is clearly rooted in a humble past. Yet its bold, modern moves celebrate the building type as a constantly evolving architectural legacy. With its simple form, shared hearth, and direct relationship to nature, this destination dwelling aptly demonstrates what makes a cabin experience so special. 0 ' 5 ' 10' TOWN OF FAIRPLAY SOUTH PLATTE RIVER VIEW TO COLLEGIATE PEAKS VIEW TO SANGRE DE CRISTO MOUNTAINS SITE PLAN CLIFF EDGE HWY 9 VIEW TO QUANDRY PEAK & BRECKENRIDGE BIG CABIN 1.
