Get ready for a lovely tour of this A-Frame (plus an addition) tiny house that sits on a lake in Switzerland, about 2 hours outside of Berlin. The off-grid boat house runs on minimal solar power without running water, Wi-Fi, or much phone connection, giving you a chance to unplug.

When you walk in, there’s an open living and dining space on the waterside of the home. Against the trees, you’ll find the micro kitchen (with a stovetop and fridge) and the bathroom with an RV-style toilet. Up the ladder sits two bedroom areas and can sleep up to four. There’s a video tour from a couple who stayed in the cabin at the end of the post.

Michael and Phoebe bought a lot on a Canadian island about three years ago and then spent a year building their 13×8 off-grid cabin, outdoor shower, rainwater catchment system, and gardens. Their island is only accessible via boat, and they live there with their adorable dog, Zephyr.

The cabin’s cladding comes from milled cedar from their property, and they heat it with a cozy corner wood-burning stove. Inside you’ll find a living and kitchen area on the ground floor, and then they have a sleeping loft and bookshelf. While they’d live tiny forever, they are going to start construction on a sub-700-square-foot home in order to be in compliance with local regulations. Enjoy their introduction and photo tour below!

Remember Jesse? The 17-year-old who was living in a tent (on purpose) and decided to build his own cabin from reclaimed materials? Well, it’s been five years since Florb’s last interview with Jesse, and guess what — Jesse is still living in his DIY cabin, now with girlfriend Jayne.

They’ve made plenty of adjustments to the cabin to make it couple-friendly, but they’ve also taken advantage of the land they’re on by building a screen house, sauna and pizza oven to expand their living space. It’s quite the awesome off-grid set up!

You’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time with a stay in this early-1900s Vermont cabin. It’s an off-grid experience, complete with a cozy wood-burning stove to heat water and keep the spot warm. There’s also a propane stove on the premises.

It’s a one-room cabin with a loft bedroom accessible via a ladder. In the cooler months, you’ll need 4WD to get to the cabin because it’s set remotely among 1200 acres of beautiful forest. Plenty of hiking opportunities if you’re up for it! Take a look.
