I’ve been thinking for a long time, mostly privately in my idle moments, about the sort of house I’d one day like to build for myself. I have some ideas that I think are pretty cool: multiple small wooden buildings, connected by walkways, with the main building on a slope with a stepped living area; a separate Japanese-style bathhouse; an octagonal library/study with windows all around; a cellar dug into the side of the hill.

Of course, all of this is nothing more than idle daydreaming. Recently though, Rita sent me a link to some pictures of cabins (sheds, huts, that sort of thing) that capture a lot of the spirit of what I’ve been thinking of. You can see them here (yes, the link is safe!). Some of these places look heavenly.
