Several weeks ago we reported on 17 architecture students in Woodbury University's design-build program who were asked to create three cabins using mainly components of a hardware store shed kit. Each cabin had to sleep two and provide light, ventilation and insulation. We asked readers to tell us which team had the best design. After a week of voting, the results were surprising: We had a tie. With 2,145 votes cast, the green split-level and the orange hammock hangout each received 1,002 votes. The silvery recycled bottle loft was a distant third, with 141 votes.

We look forward to seeing three more cabins, to be built next semester. Meanwhile, you can read our full story and click through a photo gallery of the finished projects.
