The Bunkhouse Tiny Cabin: How he Built a Mortgage-free Family Cabin

This post contains affiliate links.

In this post you’re going to get to see how this man built a family bunkhouse tiny cabin for he and his growing family.

I think it’s great when when friends and family get together to build.

This way they don’t have to go to the bank to go into debt or  have to hire expensive contractors.

This is how to build a tiny house or small cabin mortgage-free thanks to friends, family, co-workers and you.

See how this man built his very own family cabin over the course of three summers.

    This is a beautifully crafted piece of art. It would be difficult to even put a price tag on this cabin. This is the best by far that I have seen.

    nice- very nice- looks like this is a secondary structure to a existing one. Love the shingle pattern on the siding.
    I am curious were this built- pacific northwest? Only used in spring summer fall- did notice a heater in the wall- Love the columns with the smaller columns around the base to give it a nautical look. metal roof? With the right tools its amazing what can be done.
    love the hammock chairs-
