How to Build Your Own Tiny Cabin

This is Brad’s tutorial on how to build your own tiny cabin.

From the outside, you’ll notice cedar shakes, asphalt shingles and a large porch area.

When you go inside, you’ll find the walls are unfinished, but there is a living room with a couch and entertainment area. See below for the full tutorial.

    Skunks, rats, and woodchucks will just love those crawl spaces.

      How true, how true. Good point, Bob. We don’t live in a TH, but we do have critter problems–in a small town! Haven’t had skunks for a couple of years, ever since we trapped Mama, but we did trap a woodchuck a week or so ago, and we think there’s a possum there now, so the trap has been re-set. We have a crawl space, but they dig under the foundation to get in…

      By the way, a definition of a real friend: one who supplies your traps, collects them when filled, and shoots the critter(s) for you–even the skunks.

      Very nice….not certain if it would hold up well in humid coadtal central Florida…but nice none the less!

      The critters here to worry about are rattles and moccasins…here everything bites! 😜

        …including the people??? LOL, just kidding.

          Eric, especially the people…and I am NOT kidding! LOL

          But the snakes do love to hide in the recesses and the thick stuff. Tell all my visitors to keep their pants on while going for a hike in the surrounding woods.

    Nice, I can’t wait to see the finished product.

    Yeah. Crawlers love crawl spaces. That can/should/probably-will-be remedied. But the instructional video, story & commentary were pretty awesome.

    How about building on a cement slab?

  • Yedida March 29, 2017, 6:24 pm

    I built a fully finished cottage with double stand-up lofts – about 650 square feet total, with electricity, full bathroom, running water and everything, on a concrete slab, for not much more than that ($8500) 😉

      Do you have a detailed post about your build? Care to share some info ?

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN March 29, 2017, 9:17 pm

    I have had more than my share of building on concrete slabs in my life time…! It all seems to permanent for me these days, But I on the other hand have nothing against it as long as I don’t have to participate in it’s construction…

  • Elva February 2, 2018, 10:38 pm

    I meant to comment on Yedida’s build and hit the wrong button. I would also love more details on this affordable build. Thanks!
