Tiny, Ultraportable ESCAPE Cabin Can be Moved Anywhere Just Like an RV ESCAPE is an adorable RV in Canoe Bay that looks just like a tiny cabin! Clad in sustainably harvested timber inside and out, the cute cabin can be placed just about anywhere and moved as necessary. The eco-conscious RV packs a lot of living space in just 400 square feet, making it the perfect vacation cottage. With the idea that bigger is not better, ESCAPE was design with the sensibilities of Frank Lloyd Wright in mind. Inside, the customizable cabin has vaulted ceilings, giving an open and airy feeling that also encourages natural ventilation. The ESCAPE is a symbol of modern living, where energy efficiency and minimalism are met with the comforts of good design. + Canoe Bay ESCAPE Via Treehugger

Sol Duc Cabin Project Details Built for a client who fly-fishes for steelhead on the Olympic Peninsula, this steel-clad 350 sf cabin on stilts can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The cabin’s rugged patina and raw materiality respond to the surrounding wilderness while its verticality provides a safe haven during occasional floods from the nearby river. The overall design responds to the owner’s desire for a compact, low-maintenance, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his wife during fishing expeditions. Constructed primarily of unfinished, mild steel and structural insulated panels (SIPs), the cabin is supported by four steel columns and sits lightly on the site. The sleeping loft is the result of innovative materials salvaging and construction. Sol Duc Cabin’s cantilevered roof provides solar shading and protection from the strong coastal storms from the west.

Tiny House Living, Off the Grid? Here's How to Do it in Style by Cat Johnson How to get electricity, water, and the Internet in your tiny home on the range. posted Apr 09, 2014 This piece originally appeared at Shareable. LaMar Alexander grew up in a homesteading family. “I had a wake up call,” he explains, “that made me realize that what I really wanted was a simple homestead cabin and to eliminate my dependence on the system, so I could live sustainably while I pursued my dreams.” Tiny house living is a good way to reduce your ecological footprint, save money, and simplify life down to the things that truly matter. So Alexander built a house. Being an avid outdoorsman, Alexander didn’t need a lot of indoor space, but as an author, videographer, and off-the-grid builder, he did need modern amenities including a cell phone, Internet access, electric lights, indoor toilet, and shower etc., and he has them. Alexander is part of a growing movement of tiny housers. Benefits, challenges, and legalities Taking a tiny house off-the-grid How much does it cost? How to get water
