Why We Love It
After sketching a 400-square-foot home for a penny-pinching customer 30 years ago (on a cocktail napkin, no less), Phillips was inspired to create more small plans. Only 973 square feet, this home has a tin roof, board-and-batten siding, an inviting front porch, and classic stonework, which all make it memorable. “People see this cabin and it captures their hearts,” he says.
