200 Sq. Ft. Rolling Hut Tiny Cabins in the Mountains

These 200 sq. ft. tiny cabins are the perfect getaway. But if you’re like me, it can also be a great place to live simply in full time. Each unit has 200 sq. ft. of interior space and 240 sq. ft. of deck space outside.

Inside you’ve got your living room, bedroom and kitchenette. And outside you can hang out and- of course- use the bathroom which is on the porch.

    These are interesting—a pic of the bathroom would be nice–on the PORCH tho? In all that snow? LOL!

    But-is it just ME or do other people have a hard time with–well–HARD surfaces that look so UNcomfortable? Not that you could not use a foam piece covered an a pretty fabric to soften these up but there are SO MANY OF THEM!

    I would hope that the –benches???—have storage built in and access ditto the cubes and also—that vast yawning under the bed area is just ASKING for things to crawl under there and get lost. Shoes; socks; clothing; any thing you drop; books—I am thinking a few made-to-fit- and- slide large drawers would be a great use of this space.

    Also—is there a sink I missed?

    These might be nice for a roughing it weekend but for daily life they would need a few things to be added. Do like the main floor bedroom tho!!!! And the wood is nice.

    Not much difference between that and an old Shepherds Hut. Completely lacking any of the huts charm,utility,talent of design. looks like you could build it with a chop saw and a bunch of plywood over a good weekend.
    Not that there is anything wrong with that,just wouldn’t care to live in something completely void of any purposeful thought put into the design. Early 21st Century Box.

    Hmmm- not sure about long term living- a weekend- possibly- Are the wheels- really functional or just sculptural? The glass on the upper- not sure it needs to be clear- I also wonder about the energy use with that glass- all the windows high up lets in lots of light- but the view would be nice. reminds me of a shoe box- with the lid taken off and folded and suspended above the box. Its a cool design- just have the feeling that they are big sculptures that happen to look like a house. The whole Trojan horse thing. The outhouse outside I am ok with- The drain is it running down one of the legs? This could be set up like a cabin at a state park- were the shower facilities are in a communal building. – 2 inches of foam for a mattress – This I guess is roughing it in a modern style LOL. I look at this and my first thought is ok were can I read for extended periods of time without killing my back. I do like the idea of the steel- I like the plywood walls(just want some artwork on them) I like the visual of the outside almost a tree house affect. How about making the stairs like a drawbridge- to keep you safe at night from bears. Set it up so you could park your car under it – Personalize it with your own furniture and artwork for the walls. Work on some mood lighting.

    Honestly, it looks like the box a camper came in. Pair it with a VW Thing, which looks like the box a car came in, and you might have a decent weekend cabin for an area with generally very nice weather.

    I’m afraid I agree with most of the comments above.
    It’s a nice start, but to be really livable, it would need a lot of additional stuff- cushions, artwork, CHARACTER.

    I agree with Comet.
    I like the form but the layout/use is wasteful in space and not enough comfort. Also what is with the huge steel beams? Even if rolling they are not needed, in fact raise weight and cost.

    IIRC these are used in a National? park and moved for summer/winter locations, been around for a while.

    Not for me. Too stark and uncomfortable. Would not even rent for a night..

    Sorry, I find these harsh boxes repelling. No character, no invitation to comfort, and therefore no homey feeling. I wouldn’t even want to stay the night unless forced to by inclement weather.

    My husband and I seriously looking at buying a “litte house”. Love them.

    Not my cup of tea–cold and soulless, harsh and lacking in comfort. Also, it would be difficult to keep those high windows clean. Definitely not a place for winter use.

    I have always loved the tiny house
    Would be nice to have someone build a group , to sell with land
    So hard to find a place to put them due to building codes.
    RV park get very expensive after a while

    I’m not sure I like the way they are placed. I do like the bedroom and the kitchen, but the living room leaves a lot to be desired…doesn’t look comfy at all. If I’m going to live in a tiny space, I definitely want to be comfortable. The high ceiling and the glass wall makes them seem super spacious.

    I can just imaging some drunk redneck deciding it would be a great idea to move your place.

    I felt the need to elaborate on this article because I live near these huts and have visited many times. They are nightly rentals located in the scenic Methow Valley, these huts do not have much living room space because for most people the purpose of their visit to the Methow is for our gorgeous outdoor activities. The huts are extremely well liked and well known in the Seattle area, it’s actually very hard to book these huts for any holiday or summer weekend and it is also a gorgeous space for weddings. There is no sink because of a water spout located directly at the front of each hut. There is no bathroom in the hut itself however there is a Porta-Potty located at the very front of the hut NOT off of the back porch. The shower and flushing toilets are located in the barn a short distance away. There are 6 huts in total and they are an absolutely gorgeous vacation spot year round. If you want to learn any more you can go to the huts website at http://www.rollinghuts.com.

    These architects have design pegged right in! Just perfect. And why comfort? You’ll apreciate comfort more when you have it again. Something to aim for.
