An Outdoor Lover's Dream

Melissa Coleman’s cedar-clad cabin, The Minne Stuga, was designed with the outdoors in mind. The Colemans restored this once-dilapidated cabin into a space where visitors can relax, recharge, and disconnect from the bustle of daily life. Marvin Skycove and two Marvin Awaken Skylights were installed in the second-floor loft to fill the previously dim space with natural light and views of the surrounding trees. Marvin Ultimate windows and doors replaced permanently fogged windows to make this getaway light and bright.

“Somehow, [the Skycove] looks like it’s always been there. Like it was always supposed to be there. And somehow, a wall of glass windows is incredibly cozy. Just add a cushion and a heavy wool blanket, a good cup of pour-over and a book, and well, you have your weekend plans. If you could install magic in a space, this is the way to do it.”
