This is an eco friendly prefab timber frame house kit by Noble Homes. They sell efficient kit homes with customizable floor plans.

All the materials are easy to handle, including the lightweight SIP‘s for the walls and roof. Everything you need for the exterior of the home is contained in the kit which makes it easier to build.

Although this house is not as tiny as it looks it still has a relatively small footprint but it does boast about 1280 sq. ft. of space on single level floor plan with three bedrooms so it’s great for a family! I really like the open kitchen and living area with its large glass windows. The exposed timber beams in the living area plus the windows give the home a warm cozy feel to it too, don’t you think? Either way please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

This is a 258 sq. ft. tiny river cabin uniquely designed by Marion Tepp and her husband and originally shared on Small House Bliss.

The spacious outdoor deck allows for living and dining outside when the weather is nice. How amazing to get to have your own waterfront dining anytime, right?

When you go inside the cabin you’ll notice an open living room with a wood burning fireplace and at the other end is your small kitchenette and half bathroom with a composting toilet. Look up from the living area and there’s your rather spacious sleeping loft space thanks to the two dormers. Please enjoy and re-share below.

Uniquely designed, this 646 sq. ft. modern cabin in Sweden has amazing indoor/outdoor living space plus great windows. Since this cabin is in the middle of the woods the idea was to keep the building process environmentally friendly. To do this the owners had the lumber pre-cut to the exact dimensions using computer technology to help reduce the disturbance in the surrounding forest.

Inside the cabin is a great indoor/outdoor living area. The kitchen looks like it has plenty of cabinets and space to cook. I did not see a picture of the bathroom but when looking at the floor plans the bathroom is just to the left of the kitchen. The downstairs also has two bedrooms. And up the floating stairs, that I just love, is a loft bedroom with more amazing windows with views of the forest.

What once was a one-car garage, converted and expanded, is now this 750 sq. ft. cabin cottage.

In the photos below you can see how the owner added an addition to the garage on the hillside. Inside the cottage a stairway was built to connect the spaces together.

The downstairs is the old converted garage, which is where the living area, kitchen and half-bathroom are located.

Up the stairs to the newer addition of the cottage is a bedroom and full bathroom. The bedroom has a beautiful little outdoor patio to enjoy the view.

I think you’ll love the exposed wooden beams throughout the cabin. Please enjoy and share below.

Check out this two-story fairytale cob cottage nestled in the woods of Mayne Island in British Columbia. For a cob home, this one looks amazing to live in full time. I personally, love the textured stone flooring.

Downstairs is the living area with glass sliding doors that open to the beautiful stone courtyard to expand the living area outdoors. An indoor fireplace keeps the home warm during the weather. The kitchen has lots of counter space and a built-in dining table. The cozy bathroom has a built-in wood shelf for towels and other wood details. Up the Douglas-fir stairs is the bedroom with an outdoor balcony and skylights to provide tons of natural sunlight. Could you live in a cob cottage like this one full time? Please enjoy and share below.

Perched up on a hill on San Juan Island, Washington, this rustic cabin has two towers. The entire cabin is a total of 672 sq. ft. The towers are connected by a lower level open living and dining area along with the kitchen.

The upper part of the towers are sleeping lofts that can be accessed by ladder.  This cabin is completely off grid so there is no indoor bathroom and heat is provided by wood stove. Enjoy below and check out the views you could get from here. The views from the sleeping lofts must be amazing.

A cozy vacation cottage tucked away in the woods of Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada. This cottage was restored by the owners who are very crafty with woodworking, stain glass and plastering. They call it the Artwood Cottage.

The cottage has a sleeping loft, open living and dining room, a small kitchen and bathroom with composting toilet.

You can see their creative touches throughout the cottage including earthy textured plastering on the walls.

They’ve replaced the wooden stairs that lead up to the sleeping loft. And check out the custom railing upstairs. Plus the fireplace downstairs seems to be wrapped with natural stone.

Situated within the rainforest of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this modern home has views of the near by flowing river. The architect designed this 753 sq ft cabin with two giant stone walls, steel, glass and wood.

The cabin is slightly elevated off the ground which protects the home from the humid and rainy environment. The front wall is all glass with sliding door to a covered patio.

Centrally located in the home is the bathroom and closet which separates the kitchen/living/dining area from the sleeping space.

Enjoy the photos below.

I want to share with you this 226 sq. ft. lake house cabin that’s situated on a narrow island in Loosdrecht Lake in the Netherlands. This island is so small it’s barely wide enough to fit the house!

When building the lake house the architects kept in mind the location which is on a nature preserve. They kept the exterior simple so it would not detract from the surrounding environment. Inside the cabin everything is simple and free of visual clutter.

With different floor levels for the living and dining room you can enjoy unique views of the surrounding area. At night the living area transforms into the sleeping space.

Along one side of the cabin is the built-in service wall. It’s home to the compartmented kitchen, bathroom and storage.

Check out the photos below to explore this unique recreational lake house cabin.
