Right now I want to share this micro cabin with you that’s suitable for all types of weather. Architect, Mats Theselius designed this Henry David Thoreau inspired micro cabin for Arvesund. They call it The Hermit’s Cabin.

As Thoreau once said, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life.”

With only 81 square feet to live in I believe you could truly embrace what Thoreau is saying here. Live deliberately with only the essentials of life.

This humble space is big enough for a peaceful getaway in the woods or used as a shed, writing cabin, backyard office or sauna.

Henry David Thoreau’s tiny cabin is something that everybody should learn about at some point, especially if you’re into tiny houses because as you probably know, Henry David Thoreau has always been an inspiring role model for those of us seeking to simplify our lives.

Here you’ll see what his tiny cabin was like in case you ever wondered. In addition, I’d also like to share some of my favorite quotes from Thoreau. Plus, how you can build a Thoreau-like tiny house for around $1,000 thanks to LaMar Alexander. The tiny house was 10′ by 15′ with 8′ high ceilings. Below you’ll get to see how simply Thoreau lived during his time at Walden Pond.
