This rectangular wooden home by Masaaki Okuno sits in Minami-Alps City, Japan. Making use of one of the area's abundant natural resources this two-story single family dwelling is constructed out of a multitude of wooden 2x4 planks.

The planks are treated, but largely left au natrual and also make up the house's floors and walls giving the interior texture. The simple structure is slightly reminiscent of woodsy log cabins albeit with a modern twist. Stats for Modern Log Cabins Trending: Older & Buzzing
