Tiny A-Frame Cabin Perched 40ft in the Air


Hope you’re not afraid of heights because this tiny A-frame cabin is perched 40 feet in the air!  The exterior is all windows and angles, including a diamond shape on one side, but the interior is full of curved details and has a cozy ambiance to soften the feel of the space.  It was designed and built by the team at Repère Boréal in Charlevoix, Quebec, and they call it The Uhu.

Getting up into the cabin is a pretty cool experience: you climb an enclosed spiral staircase and once you reach the top, you cross a 20-foot bridge to get to the cabin’s front door.

Inside, there’s a surprisingly spacious interior considering it’s only 200 square feet. There’s a small entrance closet, separate toilet, and shower stalls, a kitchen with running water and a fridge, a Queen-size bed with storage underneath, and an eating nook with an incredible view!

Being so high up in the air, you can see above the trees all the way to the Saint Lawrence River.

A-frame cabins are not always the most efficient design in terms of usable floor space, but this one manages to tuck a whole lot of functionality into the angled walls!
