Kitchen of the Week: A Small Off-Grid Kitchen in an Architect-Designed Guest Cabin

Who says you can’t go home? A while back we dropped in on an off-grid cabin in eastern Ohio; designed and built by Greg Dutton of Midland Architecture on his parents’ 2,000-acre property , it serves as a guest quarters for him and his siblings. Today we’re taking a closer look at the cabin’s small-space kitchen, with a few budget elements, Etsy finds, and a countertop built by a childhood friend.

Here, in the petite kitchen, unadorned windows connect indoors to out and the walls are paneled in Ponderosa pine shiplap, painted in Sherwin Williams’ Pearly White.

“The pine flooring was a steal,” says Greg. “At less than $2 per square foot, it was a huge budget saver and allowed us to splurge in other areas of the project.” The pegs along the wall were an Etsy find.

The cabin was a labor of love: The white oak countertop and shelving was made by Greg’s best friend from elementary school, and Greg’s brother, father, and friends pitched in to help with the building process.
