In this contemporary cabin, windows in all of the living areas face toward the back of the home to take full advantage of a vista such as a meadow, river, mountain range, ocean or lake.
The Hibbing is a revision of one of Landmark's most popular plans, with changes in response to reader requests. The bedrooms are bigger, as is the utility room, and the home is built over a full basement.While one might think, looking at the unique shape of this home, that it would be complicated to build, the structure is actually relatively simple - a hexagon and two rectangles.
The central high-vaulted hexagonal great room has open beams and combines the functions of kitchen, dining room and living room. The wood stove, seated on a wide hexagonal hearth at its center, provides a warm focal point for this bright airy and spacious central living area.
A modified U-shaped kitchen is separated from the rest of the room by nothing more than an eating bar. A utility room, complete with a utility sink and a wide counter, is conveniently located next to the kitchen, with a huge walk-in pantry right next door.
Two rectangular areas on nearly opposite sides of the hexagon house the sleeping areas, offering privacy to both. The master suite has a double-sided walk-in closet and twin vanities located outside the bathroom. Sliding doors here, and in the dining room, open onto the wide wrap-around deck.
The two other bedrooms share a bathroom which, like the master bath, includes double sinks under a wide mirror, separate from the steamy bathing area and the toilet.
