Three Great Cabin Tiny Home Designs

Cabins September 18, 2016

After taking a look at a house plan company called Texas Home Plans a while ago, we decided to also look into what they had on offer in the way of tiny homes and cabin designs, and what they had stands out from what most of the tiny houses we’ve featured here so far, so we thought we’d share some of their work.

#1 is the Hahn Cabin, a small two-story stone house in this case using pale colored stones that is topped with a metal roof.

#2 is the Haynes Cabin, a single story metal building with a metal roof that they have sitting on a stone walled porch.

#3 is the Amionetti Cabin, a tiny house built in the countryside. Here they used an almost bleached peach colored stone and a regularly shingled roof for the finish.

For more about Texas Home Plans, find them in our metal buildings directory. Their average price seems to have been estimated around $40 – $130 per square foot. Or to read more about their process when it comes to metal homes, tiny homes, or whatever else, click here.

Classic Double Loft Park Model Home

Cabins July 4, 2016

Classic Double Loft Park Model Home

Living in cabins has become increasingly more popular in the last several years. All the wood that goes into them, the wonderful rustic quality they have, all make them very desirable dwellings. Cabins also rest comfortably in any setting. Construct it on a hillside, by a lake, nestled in the woods, even in a suburban neighborhood, and it can blend into the surrounding landscape easily and beautifully. And cabins can be spacially deceptive. They look quaint and cozy on the outside, but can have quite a spacious feel on the inside.

There are several things I love about this model home. Firstly, it’s completely mobile. So should you suddenly wish to live near the ocean, you can pick up and move your cabin so that you have a lovely ocean view. This cabin boasts a beautiful, large outdoor porch for star gazing with a glass of wine or your favorite beverage. Another thing I love is that this particular cabin has a fireplace in the living room, which is perfect on those chilly nights.

How About This Cabin? Family Lakeside Getaway

Cabins July 1, 2016

What if you have a modular cabin house that provides not only a space to live but a place for relaxation and comfort in a natural recreational setting? It must be perfect! With this kind of modular building, you will create bountiful happy memories with your loved ones each passing day. Your guests will also be fascinated with your incredible prefab abode. What a beautiful sweet modular home!

A family matron counted on a good architect, a creative interior designer, a reputable builder, and an experienced landscape architect to actualize her idea for a pocket-sized, discreet lakeside hideaway prefab.

The couple, Sandy and Dudley Youman, acquired the narrow Lake Austin waterside in 1970’s. This property has 5 heavily wooded lands with 120 feet of lake frontage. Actually, for many years the buildings constructed on this property were only a run-down cottage and a vessel dock. But a thought came in to Sandy and she sought for a modest family-style change room that is wedded to the land. An Austin architect Jared Haas of Un.Box Studio designed the house. Amazingly, the outcome is a humble micro house that packs manifold purposes and her 5 grandchildren fit into a one room of a 480-square-foot structure.

Initially, Dudley yearned for prefab but architect Haas persuaded them that it is better to build it on the area for the steep land has challenging access points that off-site construction is nearly impossible. Haas also pointed out that they spent one whole year to design the shell and it was a big project that required them to have a strong team work. The collaboration comprises a great interior designer, Herb Schoening, a reputable landscape architect, Tait Moring, and a reliable contractor, the True Build.

This beautiful lakeside house is remarkably magnificent and property owners Dudley and Sandy Youman had a taskforce of watercraft to provide entertainment both for their children and grandchildren. Indeed, modular houses have something incredible to offer that they always end up to be delightful. To see more of Un.Box Studio’s work, find them in the Building Homes and Living directory.

Cabin Transformed Into Modern Home

Cabins June 25, 2016

Builders and designers work with a team to make stable and valuable housing projects because they know that homes are significant to people’s well being. A home is where dwellers find their own identity and it’s a territory where they have control over everything they have in life.

Here is a cabin that’s been transformed into a modern home, and seeing the living room, it is exceptionally spacious and you can’t believe that it’s a tiny home. The dining room has enough space for the whole family to sit and enjoy their meals. Who would think that this used to be a plain, aluminium-sided farmstead?

Great thanks to San Francisco Architecture and Design Firm Design Blitz. This firm transformed this and it really looks entirely altered and it looks so gorgeous now. It is originally a 500-square-foot structure owned by the Horton family since it was built in 1942 as a holiday home. When the Horton family thought to make the house their full residential space, they needed a house remodelling.

Hence, the team of Design Blitz remodelled the 500-square-foot addition. Its remodelling budget is really reasonable for it only costs around $200 per square foot. Imagine this house transformation necessitated a broad work which included reframing the old original house.

After just about 75 years, the Hortons’ abode stood very beautifully and the entire new exterior within a rustic creek bounded by California redwoods, it is evident that the altered house is exceptionally stunning. The aluminium framing is absolutely lovely and its and cedar siding amid added contemporary style carries a new spirit to its interiors. Guests can also notify the unique openings beneath the extension. This transformed cabin is really an awesome remodelling project!

Cabin Home Nestled in the Mt.Hood Oregon

Cabins June 7, 2016

Cabin Home Nestled in the Mt.Hood Oregon

So you want a tiny house cabin … I mean pretty tiny … but big enough to camp out in? Well, there’s no reason you need to go big if that’s what you’re looking for, right? As long as you have enough space for a bed, a table, and a food preparation area, you can cover the bases of off-grid or small cabin living.

And who’s to say you can’t update the building a bit later with a bathroom, or a sink and fridge, or add a second unit onto it?

This is one of the Blythe Underwood Creek, a rustic, traditional tiny home cabin design. Lots of wood, so it fits into the woodsy surroundings. And they’ve furnished theirs with mostly wood furniture as well. Note that it also has a stone chimney. That’s probably optional, though, because stonework can be a bit pricey.
