This 339-square-foot park model has smart touches, making it feel double its size

Based in Athens, Texas, Recreational Resort Cottages and Cabins crafts custom designs that transform factory-build homes from ordinary into extraordinary. Take the Austin model featured below, for example.
Genuine cedar accents and a gabled copper roof give the design Southwestern flair. The theme continues inside, where high ceilings and lots of windows make the 339-square-foot home feel double its size.

On the exterior, cedar window frames pop against white shiplap siding. The home's double porches give it a unique look, as does the shed roof design.
It's no wonder the model is part of the company's Platinum line, which uses top-of-the-line finishes and a fully customizable floor plan.
Inside, high ceilings provide a backdrop for beautiful stained wood beams that accent the Southwestern ranch style. An open floor plan lends fluidity between the living room and kitchen area, which features a movable island for flexibility. ​
To maintain the open feeling, clean white cabinetry with minimal hardware and stainless steel appliances rule in the kitchen. Gray soapstone countertops complement the functional and fashionable moveable island, which has added storage.
The cozy living space has its own entertainment console, with an electric fireplace and soapstone mantle. The inset wood paneling is just right for hanging a small flatscreen television or Southwestern artwork, such as this painted skull.
There's ample space to fit a couch and reading chair.
In the back of the RV, the rear bedroom offers a tall ceiling and a personal porch for sipping morning coffee. Cedar beams frame a roomy closet.
The bathroom sits between the bedroom and the kitchen.
It features hand-laid shower tile and a small washer and dryer.

The roomy front porch feels as it belongs on a full-sized farmhouse. Here, a small wood stove adds just the right amount of heat for enjoying crisp evenings outdoors. Above, the shed-style roof adds to the home's character.

Just a few miles from Florida's sunny coast, this park model is a wonderful retreat for the solitary soul.
