The Metis cabin is long in length and short in width, made of whitewashed brick. The cabin is one story, but tall, with an exposed roof making it about fifteen feet high in all.

Inside the cabin, skylights let in natural light against the light blue, almost white walls and white wood floor. Two double beds sit against one wall, a dresser in between them, and two desks set against the other wall. Small work stations are here and there, for specific things. Everything is organized, nothing is out of place.[1]
