I think in terms of thoroughness and an interesting/clever approach, Kevin Harrington’s 8′ by 8′ by 8′ cabin layout was tops.
His also seemed to get the most by way of response and praise from others as well.
I actually liked aspects of ALL of the submissions, truly, (Remi, Rachel, and the rest, all had some great ideas!) but it was so close between Kevin Harrington and Hunter that I’d also like to mail Hunter a copy of Gerald Rowan’s “Compact Cabins”, and the limited-press TINY version of Lloyd Kahn’s “Tiny Homes, Simple Shelters”.
But Kevin Harrington, congratulations!….I’ll mail you a copy of my book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, a copy of “Eco-House”, Shelton’s Davis’ “Adirondack Pallet Chair” pack, and the long-sleeve work shirt from The Jamaica Cottage Shop of Vermont.
This contest was a lot of fun to put together and judge, and perhaps Alex and I can work on another one soon….

P.S. If you want to make it to my upcoming hands on workshop near Boston, MA it’s this November 2-4, 2012 where we’re building two structures… One 8x8x8 cabin and a micro shelter on a trailer as well! Click here for more information if you’re interested in attending.
