This Little Cabin in Tennessee Looks Like Noah’s Ark!


Why build a normal cabin when you could have one shaped like Noah’s Ark (on a “tiny” scale, of course). This unique tiny house has a living/kitchen area “below deck” and then a bedroom area on the second floor.

There’s a wrap-around deck where you can look out on the gorgeous Tennessee landscape with a pond and pasture. What a peaceful spot to stay!

    Lovely. Certainly outside the box and a wonderful place to visit or live. Really enjoy the rustic quality and all the offerings inside and out. Two things I would add. Books to read, and some animals outside. It just begs for some critters roaming and giving off the sounds of that animal kingdom. I am sure there is wildlife, but having some hands-on animals would be ideal. Good job.

    Truly unique! And there is a small pier for fishing! It’s a beautiful setting, and I guess one can bring a dog? Lovely place!

    It’s nice, but just a boat replica. It’s definitely not a Noah’s replica. Read the Bible description people. But it’s nice as it is.

      Hey Karen, you are completely correct. Nothing at all like Noah’s ark. I didn’t think it was that nice either. Unique sure its that.

      True but if it were built to Noah’s Ark scale then it wouldn’t be tiny haha! You can see a scale model of the ark here >>> https://arkencounter.com/

    With the wonderful work and thought that went into this tiny house/arc/boat, who cares if it is not a replica. I don’t believe it was built to be, or presented that way. It is the creative work of someone who wanted a boat “like Noah’s Arc, ” and that is what it is. It works for them, it works for me as a reader interested in different interpretations of tiny houses, and maybe you should be less critical and more appreciative of what others offer up for us to enjoy….or not. Your choice. Moreover, be kind.

      Yes, calling a boat like structure an Ark simply means that there can be some resemblance to Noah’s Ark type structure, but it doesn’t have to be to scale or otherwise be an actual replica or even built the same way. Typically it’s just associated with a spacious type of boat with a flat bottom…

      However, that’s just an association but the actual meaning of the word ARK is something affording protection; safety, shelter, refuge…

      This is why ARK also applies to other things, such as the Ark of the Convenient, which is most definitely not a boat. So it can actually apply to anything else that has similar protective qualities/function to it, to be appropriate to call it an ARK, and that’s the case here with this comfy, scenic, getaway…

          No problem, auto-correct can just be annoying…

    You are correct Karen. The Bible is very specific about the exact shape and dimensions. According to the Bible, Noah’s ark was a huge rectangular box.
    When artists started depicting the ark, they drew it according to what boats were built like in their day, like the one above. Many people think that a picture or painting from thousands of years later are accurate because they are old.
    I agree with you that the house is very nice.
