This tiny cabin was built to reconnect to nature and forget about daily routines
Tiny cabins that allow to relax somewhere in natural surroundings and can be easily constructed or even moved, are extremely popular today. We are sharing one of such tiny homes again and it’s a charming little cabin that was built by Ryan McLaughlin.
His goal was to reconnect with nature and to disconnect from daily routines, to try something different for a change. The cabin offers 160 square feet of space in total and is located on a vineyard in Austin, Texas. Unlike the typical tiny houses which are usually just miniature versions of full-size homes, this cabin has its own unique character as well as an outside-the-box design.
Not everything is as traditional and straight-forward as the wooden facade and pitched roof suggest. A fiberglass door conceals a little nook that contains a solar-powered water heater, a propane tank and a wood storage area. Inside, the cabin includes a small kitchen with a sink, a hot plate and a mini fridge, a cozy little sitting area with a convertible sofa and a tiny desk, a bathroom with a frosted glass wall that lets light pass through without compromising privacy and a loft bedroom with a queen-size bed, accessible via a wooden ladder.
There's a tiny deck that connects the cabin to nature and where the owner may have a sit and enjoy fresh air
One side of the cabin features a fiberglass panel designed to conceal service and storage area
Inside the cabin is done with light-colroed plywood, a matching ceiling and rubber floor tiles in black
The furniture is minimalist and built-in, it's very functional, and the cabin itself is very small to inspire to spend more time outdoors
The cabin seems to be floating a few inches above the ground, allowing space for a wood-storage niche underneath
The small sofa can be converted into an extra bed if needed
There's a kitchen and dining area that feature some storage units to make staying here more comfortable
The walls and furniture are made of the same plywood, which makes the cabin look larger than it is
A tiny bathroom is situated next to the kitchen and features a frosted glass wall which lets light pass through
The windows are small so the emphasis is on coziness rather than the views
The dark wooden exterior gives the cabin a distinguish look and helps it blend into the landscape
The sleeping area is upstairs and can be accessed via a wooden ladder that slides into place
