Redefining The Cubicle

This tiny building was the home office of Peter Frazier which overlooks Chuckanut Bay in Bellingham, Washington. A couple of years ago it was featured on Lifehacker. Peter now works from a sailboat in Bellingham! Today this cabin is available as a vacation rental on Airbnb.com! Ironically, Peter Frazier’s story sounds almost like a mirror of my […]

Viva la (Tiny House) Revolution – Mad River Mystery Cabin

I love this story. Apparently someone built a rogue cabin on public land, got caught, and move it without a trace. I bet this very same cabin was reassembled just a few miles away and covered with better camouflage. LOL The story unfolds as such… a forest ranger marches into the woods marking trees for removal […]

Gerald’s Prospector’s Cabin

Thanks for sending the photos Gerald! What a great idea to build the house in the garage ahead of time – I guess you can do that when the house is just 12’x12′. The idea of pre-building the roof on the ground especially makes a lot of sense. It’s much safer to do that kind of tricky work on […]

Shipping Container Based Remote Cabin Design Concept

The ability to button-up and secure remote cabins helps thwart would-be thieves. Tiny buildings made from shipping containers are naturally easy to secure when left mostly intact. Cutting holes for windows and doors not only opens the home up with natural light, it opens opportunity for break-in. In this design exploration I show how windows […]
