Nestled deep within nature and surrounded by a lush man-made pond this totem style cabin is a guest house oasis. Henry Yorke Mann, architect, designed this small cabin for clients who wanted to give their guests an experience they would not forget among the 10-acre property in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia.
Once inside you will notice there is a skylight that runs the length of the home at the peak of the roof. This feature gives so much sunlight inside the wooded cabin.
There is a fireplace that divides the home from the living and dining area in the front half and the kitchen and bathroom in the back corners. With the sleeping loft above.
The owners decided to stay in the cabin a few times and soon discovered they were ready to downsize from their 5,000 sq. ft. home to the 400 sq. ft. Totem cabin.
Check out the inside of this cabin in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia.

It has a front covered porch, gable roof, dormers, and the porch folds up for travel. Inside you’ll find a shower, RV flush toilet, kitchen with double sink, oven, marine grade heater, an upstairs sleeping loft, solar kit, and more.
The flooring has R30 insulation and the walls have R20. There’s LED lighting throughout to conserve energy. Learn more, take the tour, watch the video, and if interested see the links below.
I’ve been wanting to share these little A-frame cabins with you on the sunshine coast of British Columbia for quite a while now.
They’re submitted anonymously from one of our wonderful readers and are on a property with a total of 5 A-frame cabins.
The one I’m showing you here has recently been renovated with a little bit of paint. Soon, the kitchen will be modernized.
And since the owner/dweller is getting a little bit too old for stairs, they’re planning on building an extension for a bedroom so they don’t have to crawl into bed anymore using a ladder. I hope you enjoy this small A-frame cabin and that it inspires you towards the right size home for you. As always, feel free to re-share using the share buttons below if you want to and share your thoughts about it in the comments too.
