This is the story of a little A-frame cabin in the Catskills of New York. It’s totally off-grid on a two-acre property in the Catskill mountains. It features solar panels, a wonderful deck, large windows, a chimney, and a very peaceful setting to be in that’s a two-hour drive from the big apple (New York City).

Would you ever consider designing and building a small home like this over a tiny house? Let’s talk about that in the comments! And by the way, you can actually book this A-frame cabin using Airbnb if you want to!

This one of a kind modern tiny mountain cabin in Norway is sure to amaze you.

I hope it’ll at least slightly amuse you because it’s definitely something you’ve probably never seen before thanks to the creative entrance into the cabin (see below).

This structure was designed and built by students and architects at Bergen School of Architecture. It was done using mostly scrap wood materials from local mills in the area. As you’ll see, this tiny cabin is modern, sleek, and minimalist. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

I had to share this wood cliff tiny cabin with a private creek and cliff top views with you right now.

It’s a tiny hand-built retreat made to accommodate two people with its fully equipped tiny kitchen, queen bed, and separate bath house and sauna nearby.

The rear porch gives you amazing treetop views as you’ll be able to see in the photos below. It was built using ten different types of wood. Well water is gravity fed to the cabin and bath house.

Nearby you’ll find an 80′ cliff that overlooks a mountain creek where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the moving water.

This is a Reader Submitted Guest Post – Send in Yours Here!

Just moved into an approx. 600 sq ft cottage in the mountains of NC.

It was built in 1939 as a garage – and was converted in the 50’s to a house.

Many of the door handles are polished wooden branches (for the closets and the back door and the bedroom door).

I used many of the hints and ideas from other folks ‘living small’ to take advantage of the unusual and tiny spaces in this place.


Truly enjoying the downsized way of living – and with those views out the back door…how could I not?
