    I think it is darling and well planned. Organized, cute, functional, homey. Only thing I would do is paint the particle board walls. Even a wood colored stain would make it pop out, and give a finished look. I like it very, very, much.

    Sorry, but just not into the exposed framework.
    Finish the interior already!
    The communal bar/firepit is a nice touch, especially considering there’s a couple of other tiny homes on the property.
    The front porch treatment reminds me of a True Built home I’ve been enamoured with for a few years now.

    In Michigan with no insulation? Exposed particle board? No thanks.

      Precisely what I was thinking… and I live in New Zealand and we generally don’t have the weather extremes that Michigan would have.

      And hate, hate, hate… exposed stud framing. Close it in already… with insulation.

    It’s amazing what different states allow, you would never be able to do anything like that in Washington or California, exposed wires next to the fireplace? wow.

      Not a real fireplace, it’s an electric space heater…

      I live in Michigan and this wouldn’t be allowed where I live either. Different cities, counties and townships all have their own codes. I’m wondering if this cabin is running under the municipal radar? If not, I’m glad to know because I’m looking at buying some property further up in rural parts of MI and I hope to build a cob or straw bale cottage. Maybe it would be allowed!

        I live in New Zealand, and essentially the building code is pretty much the same for the whole country. At least you know pretty much what you are dealing with, apart from the monkey’s running the consents departments in each council zone.

    Nothing wrong with an electric fireplace. They are efficient and clean, and can be easily moved or replaced. I have a stick built home and use them, and in my motorhome. They heat quickly and are safer, and easier than using wood. For some people, wood is not an option. Seems the bros are being kind of picky. Agree, the exposed wiring is not attractive, and I would not have the heater so near the wiring, but all in all, it is a thoroughly thought out structure.

    Finish the interior. No insulation will lead to rot.

      Uh, no, while they should finish the interior, the lack of insulation will not lead to rot by itself. That’s more a issue with how modern houses are conditioned and air tight but unconditioned structures just have to be weather proofed, which a finished exterior basically does and the interior just needs to be well ventilated…
