The Southern Rustic Cabin

A stunning new book, The Southern Rustic Cabin by Emily J. Followill, features a chapter on the Hazel River Cabin, a vacation retreat designed by Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS.

The chapter on Hazel River Cabin, “A Home in Three Acts,” tells the story of David Haresign, FAIA’s collaboration with client Joe Svatos in combining a 1794 log cabin, an 1856 clapboard addition and an imported cabin that had served as slave quarters to create a rural weekend home.  These historic cottages retain their original character while having been renovated for contemporary life.

Followill’s photography book features a total of thirteen homes located in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, and Virginia.

The Southern Rustic Cabin is now available for purchase and a preview of its contents is available on Amazon (look for details of Hazel River Cabin on the inside front cover)!
