This is a tiny backyard studio guest room tiny house that reminds me of a modern version of Thoreau’s cabin.

The asking price was $8,800 back when it was listed on eBay. Much like Thoreau’s cabin, there’s no bathroom but you do get a place to sleep, think, read, write, and snack. Pretty cool place to get some time with yourself!

This is a modern micro cabin in Italy called the Larch Hut. It’s designed by¬†Arboreal Architecture¬†and reminds me of a modern version of the tiny cabin that Thoreau stayed in at Walden.

Inside you’ll find it’s very¬†minimalist¬†because it consists of¬†a bed, a desk, and¬†some¬†overhead storage.

What do you think? Can you see yourself living this simply, even if it’s only temporary? To explore more tiny homes like this, join our Tiny House Newsletter.ūüėÄ

This 11′ by 14′ tiny cabin in the woods was built by carpenter Dave Herrle for only $4,000 in about 6 weeks.

He used as much salvaged materials as he could find to complete it and was deeply inspired to create a simple way of life.

After graduating from college Dave got a desk job that he did not enjoy. In 2007 he hiked the entire Appalachian Trail when he was 27 years old and it absolutely changed his outlook on life. He knew he had to make some changes.

The hike gave¬†him the perspective on living simply that he needed to make a positive change in his life. In his words, “It was in the woods that I promised myself that I wouldn’t spend a lifetime doing a job I didn’t enjoy.”

For the longest time I had a hard time not being “normal.” I graduated from a small liberal arts college, got a desk job, and hated every minute of it. In 2007 my life changed dramatically after hiking the entirity of the Appalachian Trail. It was a gut check in life and I’m lucky it happened when I was 27 and not 67. My time in the woods gave me a perspective on the benefits of simplicity. It was in the woods that I promised myself that I wouldn’t spend a lifetime doing a job I didn’t enjoy.
Six years after hiking the trail I am a full time carpenter and have never been happier. To be able to pay the bills while doing something that I am passionate about is one of the greatest things I have found in life. Carpentry has always been my outlet for creativity and now I hope that it will help me in my goal of becoming completely self sufficient…

I ran into this at the tiny houses category over at Reddit and just had to share it with you.

This is one man’s tiny cabin for minimalist living in the Smokies.

It was originally bought as a getaway cabin in the mountains.

At about 570 sq. ft. with an open floor plan and a great location… I think it’s a great place to live simply in… How about you?

Have you ever dreamed of simple living in a tiny cabin?

If you prefer tiny houses on foundations instead of on trailers I think you’ll enjoy this.

From the outside it looks like it might just be a shed. But it’s a little more than just that.

The only thing it’s missing is an indoor bathroom. So I imagine there’s an outhouse nearby.
