This is the Hale Kilo I’a in Kailua, Hawaii.

Hale Kilo I’a is a unique twist on Hawaiian and modern architecture. Hale Kilo I’a is a collaborative project between H1 Construction & Fujita+Netski Architecture (together called H1+FN Design Collaborative). Playing with the idea of dual structures & the use of a creative wall, this project creates a private oasis right in the heart of Kailua. These humble structures work at creating a unique tension that is meant to always excite guests with shape, form, & color.

This tiny studio cabin is submitted by Dr. Rodney Pygoya Chang – share yours!

This cute studio was just completed (July 2015). It’s designed to be both an art studio as well as guest room detached from the existing residence.

Hopefully the bright colors will stimulate the occupant’s creative juices. The main house has about 2500 sq feet under roof whereas the studio offers just 144 sq. ft. of interior space with an 8’x12′ covered deck. It overlooks the natural rain forest up here at Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The owner actually resides in Honolulu on the main island of Oahu.

The playful bungalow serves as a relaxing alternative to crowded urban living and the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, recently ranked 3rd for the worst traffic in a major American city. Volcano Village itself is nestled in a rain forest that is perched on the slope, close to the top, of active Kilauea Volcano. A devastating eruption is predicted to happen every 500 years. It’s being about 500 years since the last lava spill… So, considering the impending risk, small with its cost containment is good!

This 750 sq. ft. tropical stilt cabin is on the big island of Hawaii in a rain forest setting.

This means amazing views, lots of clean oxygen to breath, and a great opportunity for star gazing at night. I think you’ll really like this little cabin and best of all you can actually vacation in it too if you want to.

This is the story of Kristie Wolfe and how she built her own 230-square-foot tiny cabin in Hawaii in the course of two months for only $11,000! This was after she had built her own 97-square-foot tiny house on wheels in Idaho for just $5,000. But she just couldn’t stop there.

So after a few years, she decided she would buy her own plot of land in Hawaii. She did sight unseen, for $8,000. This would be the location of her second tiny home. Later, she and her mom built the house together using only $11,000 in material cost and two months of labor together. What a cool way to bond, right!

This tiny cabin is 15-ft by 15-ft and sits up on stilts. It’s completely off-grid meaning you even have to rely on rain for water. Don’t worry, she’s got a nice rainwater system set up here. There are even rooftop solar panels for electricity and propane for cooking and heating. Today, the unit is a vacation rental that you can actually book on Airbnb. So what do you think, could you design/build your own tiny house kind of like this?
