480 Sq. Ft. Modern Cabin on Lake Austin in Texas (Beautiful!)

This is a 480 sq. ft. modern cabin on Lake Austin in Texas named Cousin Cabana.

When you step inside, you’ll discover an open layout with a kitchen, living area, and dining room. You’ll also find a full bathroom, enough storage, and of course, the beautiful deck so you can enjoy the outdoors.

This cabin, named ‘Cousin Cabana’, was designed by Jared Haas of Un.Box Studio, landscaping was done by Herb Schoening of Tait Moring, and it was built by True Building. What do you think?

    Um, where do you sleep?

    A beautiful home! It looks like it has been done by a designer, i.e. not lived in. Is it for rent and how close to Lake Austin. We spend winter months in the Austin area and might be interested.

      It was built for the owner on a property they have been using for family get togethers since the 1970’s… So it’s just for hosting and letting friends and family enjoy the property every now and then…

      The companies involved are listed with links provided but this is probably a fairly high priced option…

    Very nice. Could be a winner for someone that does not want to travel.

    Every time I see a beautifil glass walls I feel stimulate imagine, fantasy, for example I would see in a completely glass wall a vintage, antique wooden door, in Baroque or Renaissance Style etc… , a sculptural work of “other times” carved wood that gives prestige breaking the modern but in symbiosis with it. as a perfect symbiosis between different eras. So also a window with ancien wooden jambs against a completely glass wall.

    I am really not a fan of the wall of glass. I dunno, it’s probably because I live where it gets COLD. I can’t imagine walking past those windows in the middle of winter and not shivering myself silly. Not to mention liking a bit of privacy and not feeling like I’m in a fishbowl.

    Approximately how much does it cost to build the tiny house with all the glass?

  • Avatar Eric December 11, 2017, 6:47 am

    Oooooooooohhhhh, nice. I. Want. One. Too, or maybe that should be Two. Yummy, yummy, yum, yum.

  • Avatar Chuck August 30, 2018, 5:36 pm

    Bet this was SUPER pricey to build. And, having the ovens next to the frig is not a good idea.
