This little mazot of 270 square feet of floor area has been renovated into a holiday apartment for a young family and is located on the magnificent sunny slopes of the village of Sarreyer. On the upper ground floor, the specifications required the integration of two bedrooms, a living room, and a spacious living space. The log cabin’s existing masonry base was renovated, and the mazot was removed, straightened, and reassembled on site.
The project’s completion necessitated significant technical solutions due to the construction site’s limited accessibility. The interior fittings were given special attention, and the chambers from the old mazot were repurposed and incorporated into the design.
The log cottage was originally constructed in 1792 as a barn to house cows during the winter and to dry hay and cereals. A young couple bought the cabin 200 years later, refurbished it, and turned it into a charming three-story apartment.
To accomplish so, a surveyor measured the existing volume and a carpenter numbered the planks, which were then rebuilt at the same location before the barn was dismantled. There are various advantages to using recycled wood, and one look at this reconstructed log cabin demonstrates how beautiful and authentic it can be.
