Funky 140 Sq. Ft. Off-Grid Cabin

This post contains affiliate links.

When it comes to funky design and creative use of reclaimed material Derek “Deek” Diedricksen is the building master. In this case it’s a custom designed and built 140 sq. ft. off the grid cabin called the Glass House because it’s loaded with recycled windows.

Using recycled glass, windows, wood and other odds and ends Deek came up with the Glass House. When you go inside you’ll see it’s great for weekend getaways. But with some modifications you might be able to make this funky tiny cabin livable year-round. What do you think of this funky off-grid cabin? Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

    This is a totally unique place. It puts the “camping out in a little cabin in the woods” in a whole new perspective. I would keep the lights out at night though, just in case someone was in the woods. LOL!

      Wotzamatter you, Trisha? When your house is the object of hope, curiosity and amazement, the gazers will not even notice you. Or will they?

    There is no way a person could be depressed staying in a place like this. I saved the pictures for further inspiration as I continue to work on my tiny cabin. Thanks Deek for once more showing how think outside the box with fun results.

    Nice ! I personally would tie it all together by painting it a taupe color. Great job!

    I love the house. Over fifty years ago I lived in a house with a bedroom with that green wavy plastic for a ceiling, It didn’t cost that much to heat or cool. Those were the days. Now air-conditioning and heating would cost a small fortune. I do, however, love the windows. Can you walk on the window in the floor? Just wondered.

    I think a window in the floor of the loft over the kitchen type a thing might be nice. One can always throw a blanket on it if you have company and you don’t want them seeing you up there. chances are if you don’t point out that it’s there, they might not even know it.
