Created by Eric Nation, of Workshop + Gallery in Searsport, Knox Cabin is a 1,100-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath, modernist house designed to sit respectfully in its seven-acre rural environment. The energy-efficient, single-story house is tucked into the hillside to provide shelter from cold Maine Nor’easters and noise from the nearby road. The linear floor plan allows each room to have unobstructed views over a meadow surrounded by mature forest. A covered entry porch opens into the living room and open-plan kitchen, anchored by a centrally located Morsø woodstove. Clerestory windows along the north wall bathe the living spaces in soft, natural light. Interior finishes reflect the minimalist aesthetic, with a rough-sawn pine ceiling contrasting with concrete flooring and white walls in the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms. A massive hemlock countertop extends the granite-topped kitchen island and provides seating. The living room and primary bedroom open onto a gravel terrace that sits above the meadow.
