Gila Burro Mountains Cabin - Part 3 - Cabin Interior

Before entering, I take a look at the porch on the right, which is set up for both summer and winter use, with screens and removable glass windows.

The stonework envelops the entire lower half of the first story, and forms a decorative table here on what is the rear of the fireplace and chimney. Pueblo Indian artifacts found on the property decorate the center, and are found along with interesting rocks and minerals along the outer walls.

Inside the log core, I look back at the front door and can't help but enjoy the view through the stained glass center.

Turning around (as you walk in through the door) the den and kitchen area immediately convey the rustic character of old Gila mountain construction. That's right, all of the logs and stones are from the area!
As you walk into the center of the room, your eyes are immediately drawn to the unique stairs that lead to the MBR (master bedroom) and upstairs to the two additional bedrooms.

The rough stone fireplace has outside air feeds, internal plenums with circulating fans and is capable of heating the entire house.

The kitchen is small but plenty adequate for rustling up anything from Cajun goodies or cowboy meals!

The downstairs bath boasts a jacuzzi, seperate shower and a single lavatory...

Before walking into the MBR, I stand on the steps and get this nice panoramic view of the entire cozy living area---then continue to pan around the room to give you a real feel for the place!

The master was an addition, nice complete separate area, with it's own outside entry----

and it's own bath-----

The exposed logs continue into the upstairs ceilings with a walkaround balcony opening back down into the living area.

The rear bedroom is quite large with its own closet and bookshelves.

The walkway between rooms has a nice northeast view and leads past more bookshelves into the front bedroom which will double as an office.

It also has a great view, over the front entrance looking almost due east.  All-in-all plenty more room than Kim and I need, but nice for guests and the kids!
