Vermont Home Design designed their Butler Island Cabin on a small footprint, because new construction on Butler Island is only allowed on existing footprints. Once drafted, the plans were executed by Surprenant Construction.
The small home, located on a tiny island in North Hero, Vermont, has two stories along with a walk out deck and porch.
Since it’s right on the lake, large windows provide exceptional views of nature and wildlife. Though the house itself may be small, the secluded and scenic location adds a feeling of openness and harmony with the surroundings.

Though a first floor kitchen almost totally consumes the downstairs living space, the walkout porch could be transformed into a three season screened-in porch in the future. Maybe even add a wood burning stove?
