This is the story of Graeme Jenvey of the Woodness Goodness YouTube Channel and the $13,000 DIY tiny cabin that he built in only 55 days during 2020. The structure is 12-ft. wide and 20-ft. in length.
Already living on a 3-acre plot of land, it was easy to find a spot in the backyard for the build. In 2020, with a full lockdown in place, it was even easier to go ahead and decide to do it. So here it is. His DIY cabin built in only 55 days, as a self-taught woodworker, too!

He Built A $13,000 Tiny Cabin In Only 55 Days
After digging and setting up the foundation piers, it’s time to start building…
The foundation is coming together.
Always make sure you’re level.
Building a cabin isn’t easy, but it’s certainly worth it.
And getting to do it in beautiful weather, surrounded by nature, can be a sort of zen experience.
Building out the walls.
Getting everything lifted and connected to each other.
Installing the insulation.
Preparing for the roof installation.
Installing the metal roof.
Sheathing the exterior walls.
You can see the front door cut out here.
Drilling into the concrete.
Covering the cabin with beautiful siding.
Preparing for the windows.
More windows. 🙂
As you can see it is nicely insulated inside.
Finishing touches on the ceiling and exposed beams.
The little cabin with some fog.
Finishing up details on the trim.
The cabin all done!
55 days of hard work.
