When his parents sold the family vacation cabin so they could buy their dream home, this man decided to buy some Canadian prairie land and build a 96 square foot cabin that could fit his family of four and keep them warm in the subarctic temperatures of Treaty 6 Territory. They live off-grid on the 141 acre property for about 125 days a year.
He didn’t have a lot of time to get the cabin built before winter set in, but in 12 days spread out over about 3 months, he and a couple friends managed to build this fully-functional little cabin for just about $3,000 (USD) in 2016. Since then they’ve added solar panels, a propane heater, and other little touches which brought the cost up to about $4,300. Still incredibly impressive for such a little space!
By keeping the cabin under 100 square feet, he’s able to keep the land labelled as agricultural, which saves on property taxes. He made an awesome video about his build, and a second video outlining his costs, which are great resources for anyone interested in doing something similar!

Students learn about self-sufficiency, organic living, and useful skills like being able to create your own equipment like forging your own knife, making your own sandals, and more.

When you take your first look at it, you’ll notice it’s a custom built piece of furniture. On one end, you’ll notice a pull-out mattress that can also double as a couch when it’s not in sleeping mode. On the other side of the wall, there’s a “bedroom” with a queen-sized bed. And finally, above, you’ll see there’s a sleeping loft. So that’s a total of three levels of sleeping in one corner of the tiny house. Please enjoy the full tour and learn more below.
