I'm still have the "cabin fever", and probably will all winter. Nothing seems cozier than a rustic getaway in the mountains. So I thought I'd share another one of my favorite tiny cabins today, originally found here.
This Oregon cabin is awesome. And the most awesome part? It cost the couple only $57K. Including the land! These are my kind of people.
“There’s no need to drive to a trailhead,” says Mariah, noting that informal paths connect the cabin to mountain bike trails and Forest Service hiking trails. “In winter, we ski and snowshoe,” Ryan says. “It’s peaceful here, and spending time off the grid resets your priorities.”
The couple found the partially burned, sloped plot of land while on vacation. They snatched it for a steal, and he used his architectural expertise to build a 130 square foot, one room cabin that is perfect for their needs.
The entire interior was furnished using pieces from craigslist, thrift stores, and Ikea.
There's no running water or electricity. Just a little wood burning stove for heat. So simple, and no utility bills! It's like camping but better! Totally up my alley.
Best of all, I love the simple, modern, open design. Huge barn doors can open to completely open the space to the outdoors.
What a perfect relaxing retreat. I would be there every weekend.
I love seeing creativity and frugality used together so well. I'm sure the expenses were 1000% (yes I meant to type one thousand) worth it.
