His Amazing Mountaintop DIY Tiny Rock Cabin

Mike is a professional snowboarder who purchased 84 acres in Tahoe on a huge granite slab and transformed it into a hand-crafted rock cabin with a hot tub, cold plunge, ski lift, and even an onsite Overlander that he rents out on Airbnb!

It took Mike years and years to get the property he bought in 2005 to where it is today, and he did it with lots of help from friends and family. While the off-grid spot is still closer to glamping, it offers all the amenities of home and Mike did such an incredible job designing this masterpiece. Enjoy the tour!

    The way he blended the woodwork and stone is gorgeous. Lots of creativity and great ideas here! The whole place is a work of art, and the location is stunning. He didn’t mention a toilet. Is there an outhouse?
