With 270 degree views and modern twists on classic designs, the Saltbox offers a sophisticated yet cozy space to call home. Inspired by the classic “lean-to” design, this tiny home floor plan was designed with simplicity in mind to maximize space and style. Featuring elegant architectural touches and high-end finishes like quality appliances from Summit Appliance® and Ply Gem® aluminum clad wood windows, the Saltbox is the perfect home for those looking to live simply and luxuriously.
Heralding from the New England regions circa 1600’s- the saltbox has a wonderful heritage that extends back to the beginning of our country. There is a wonderful story about the Queen’s taxation of homes by how many stories they had- so the ingenious colonists kept one story in the back; thus avoiding the higher taxes... Ours does the same via a story and a half front and keeps a low profile in the rear. I have long been fascinated by this "lean-to" structural form- being one of the simplest ways to create space and protect from the elements. Built with exposed heavy timbers they are sturdy and simple cabin like structures- our version employs some creative latitude with a modern twist of an old classic. - Jeff Dungan
Jeffrey Dungan’s award-winning portfolio of custom estate homes can be found across Central and North America. Jeffrey’s homes offer all the convenience and luxury of today’s homes with a look and feel that hearkens back to a simpler time. His interior concepts helped shaped a completely new direction on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau and throughout the Western North Carolina region. Recently, Jeffrey turned his talents to creating designer cottages. He was intrigued with the idea of bringing his approach to the tiny-house movement. He devoted his career to designing substantial homes on large tracts of land with generous budgets, so designing our cottages was a dramatic shift, and the results are very exciting.
