One-bed open plan rancher

A perfect cabin or small rental that will instantly make more income than you spend on a mortgage to build it. Whether you need a secondary suite to house your relatives, a cozy holiday retreat or an income-generator, this home is small enough to fit most spaces, yet big enough you could happily live in it permanently. The open plan kitchen/living room offers good entertaining space while the separate bedroom provides privacy, and the numerous windows ensure plenty of natural light.
