Amazing Kit-Built Round Cabin on His Own Land

Eric, an engineer with a love for mountain sports, wanted to get out of the city and closer to the action — so he built himself a 500-square-foot wooden yurt from a kit! He bought the land, routed electric and plumbing, poured a concrete slab with radiant floor heating, and erected the 25-foot-diameter structure right in the middle of a small mountain town in Washington.

The house has incredible vaulted ceilings, which makes it feel so much larger than it is. A bank of windows in the kitchen looks out at the mountains, and stairs lead up to the loft bedroom. He has a funky-shaped bathroom on the first floor, and a little nook for his office where he works from home. What do you think about this cute space?

  • Eric loves mountain sports, and wanted to live closer to his destination, so he decided to move out of the city.
  • Originally, he looked at tiny homes on wheels, but after crunching numbers, he figured he could spend a bit more and get a small home on a foundation.
  • He purchased his 1/4 acre lot in a small town back in 2017, when it was only $30K. Now that lot is worth around $120K. The kit cost $30,000 for the shell, and once he routed water and electric and finished the interior, the total cost for the build came around $150K. That’s easily the price of a higher end THOW these days!
  • The first thing he built on the property was a large shed where he could store his tools and all his sporting gear.
  • The house includes a loft bedroom, but he has plans to add on a bedroom at ground level in the future.
