Tiny Dogtrot House

“In Ramseur, North Carolina, a reincarnation of a modernist dog-trot house. The original was designed by Stephen Atkinson more than a decade ago and became a darling of design magazines. This one was built by Terrie Moffitt and Avshalom Caspi, psychology professors at Duke University, who saw the house on the cover of a book, and wrote to Mr. Atkinson. He made a bargain with them: they could have the plans free, but if they made substantial changes, he would charge them.”

    This is a great style with a lot of outdoor living space, though that fireplace is a cool feature, it would be infinitely more useful as an indoor heating element. You can't see from this single photo the open center of the cabin it's well worth a look at the link to the NY times.
    The cabin is traditionally wood framed and sheathed with plywood and house wrap in the modern style before the galvanized cladding was added…it's siding, the cabin is much more substantial than just the metal.

    I lived in North Carolina, and the skeeters would eat you alive in that house!

    And every copperhead in Eastern NC will want to camp out there. But I'd risk it to live in a space so brilliantly conceived. Best wishes.
