The full sized version is 16′ by 8′ by 8′ with the following features:

  • One double bunk
  • Two single bunks
  • Kitchenette
  • Lighting
  • Double-glazed french doors
  • Window

Next there’s a smaller version of the same thing.

64-square-foot Mini Microlodge House

This design comes with two single bunk beds but it can also be made to have a single double if you wanted. Although this one is just 8′ by 8′ by 8′ it still has enough room for…

  • Kitchenette area
  • Mini refrigerator
  • Electrical outlets
  • Glass front door

Next is Microlodge’s version of a gypsy wagon. Well- let’s just say it’s a cabin that’s wagon inspired.

Wild West Wagon from Microlodge UK

This model is based off of the full sized Microlodge but it has 12 inches of extra width. Even though it looks like it uses the tarp as a roof it still has a shingle finish so you avoid leaks while still keeping the authentic look.

Then the company adds wagon wheels to make it look even more official. Again this company normally builds these commercially so I don’t think it’s a working gypsy wagon.

    Those are way cool. I think they would make great guest houses or camp houses.

    I always thought of Hobbit houses as being mostly underground. :)

    On my travels across Canada and the USA, I still find the odd reminisce of what we used to do, rent a cabin at the lake or some remote place of interest for one reason or the other. Generally a cluster of tar paper shacks the rain came through the roof, and walls, wind blew through the siding cracks and doors and windows and we had a ball. They were built mostly from local resources and as cheap as possible. You had better have liked sponge baths and outhouses in those days, no one did and everyone complained but years later, those very subjects are reflected on as the best time ever and hours of laughs are expelled from everyone. (of course everyone locked someone in a outhouse or was locked in one, hell that was initiation) The children of today’s era sit wide eyed enchanted with the stories of something they will never experience (but they too will have their memories). When I come here to the valley I pass one such cluster of tiny log buildings which played host to such style as I mentioned. I love seeing them, they have for sale signs on some, to be moved and every once in a while on less is there. Across the road and on side, excavation and development, progressing a little more on my every trip is the modern day version of these little cabins. It’s nice, very expensive; I suppose to meet the demand, every comfort possible. Just exactly what this post is about, and I think it is nice.

    A few years ago, a girlfriend and I furnished a house for a large family who were burned out without insurance using our discarded items. The father and I became friends and he repaid me by giving me a hand with some small projects, each time accumulating some more items that I was pleased to see leave and he to receive. One day I told him about this little shack and 3 of the kids were listening, I told him it would be a sleep on the floor, bbq in the living area and gravity shower deal but they were welcome to come down anytime they wanted. He said he might take me up on that. The kids immediately replied “really Dad” and he said ya, like the old days and he and I laughed. The kids couldn’t get it off their minds especially when I told them we could drive a nail in the wall and put up hammocks and have a fire pit in the bush yard. Kind of makes you wonder what we are missing. I would prefer those old shacks to these but they are nice. George’s kids won’t experience them until they make their own way but possibly could, in their romantic youth if the old shacks were around.
