It's one full floor with a mezzanine and basement. You can see a plan and section on our PDF brochure for the project. The link just below the thumbnails on this webpage:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Design Details: Framing Views
This cabin in north-central Washington state is composed of predominantly solid side walls, helping to insulate the interior from the cold and winds. Yet that horizontal window is intriguing ...
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 10 Elements of the Just-Right House
... no matter the style or location.
If you are blessed with a mountain view, a long and lean window can turn it into a work of art.
Many times simplicity begins with a singular geometry, one form enclosing space in a beautiful way. This cabin not only makes use of a simple geometry, but also avoids the mistake of using far too many materials that much of modern architecture makes. The architect maintained simplicity by using only the materials necessary, allowing the geometry to speak for the architecture.
Dorman Architects added this to See 6 Homes That Rise to the Rural Landscape
Part of the beauty of this building is its simple, compact form with no added bits — even the wood logs are integrated as the base and add to its texture and grain. The building acts as an object in the landscape, particularly since it's unencumbered by the cars that usually abut most houses.
