Rustic Cabin

Michaela Mahady created A 2400+ sq. ft. cabin that feels like it grew out of this heavily treed lakeside lot. Her design features a small screen house connected by a breezeway and two car garage with second story storage area, affording the owners plenty of storage and work shop space.

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Shingle Style Is Back — Here's How to Spot It
Contemporary twists. In some modern examples, the wood shingle roof has been replaced with more durable and longer-lasting asphalt shingles. The architect of the contemporary example shown here has created a unique statement by contrasting the darker body of the house with the dusty red roof.More photos: Shingle could be one of the most popular revival styles in recent history. Search for exterior photos on Houzz, and you will find that many of the most popular are of the shingle revival.
