2. The Hermit’s Cabin, by Swedish architect group Arvesund, was first shown at the Stockholm Furniture Fair twenty years ago. Ten years ago it was redesigned for a more modern look. At about 8.5 x 10 ft, it’s just big enough for one occupant (or two if you’re snugglers), but this tiny house can stand up to all seasons.

3. A cozy little cottage in Port Clyde, on the coast of Maine. On Drift Inn Road, it’s only a 5 minute walk from the coast and Marshall Point Lighthouse.

4. A Colorado couple designed and built this tiny house in only 2 months - without any prior construction experience! Both teachers, Jenna and Sean were interested in living smaller, reducing their impact, and keeping their finances flexible, while still being able to travel. They built the house in Colorado with the help of friends, and then drove it all the way to Portland, Oregon, where they finally got to move in. Jenna and Sean’s story is just another example of how building a tiny house, though it takes a lot of work, is not as difficult and unattainable as some might think.

5. This little house is a remote mining cabin in central Colorado that sits so nicely on the mountainside. I wonder if anyone still lives there.

6. MoonShadow is another cabin at the Blue Moon Rising neighborhood of eco-retreats. Deep in the woods of Garrett County, Maryland, this little house offers its guests a rustic escape back to simpler times. The bright green antique half-door, the cedar shakes, and the tin roof are reminiscent of a lovely old farmhouse.

7. The small simple Klunken cabin sits up on a hill with a view of Drammen and Lier, Norway and Lake Skapertjern. Truly off the grid, there is no electricity or running water, and it’s a 40 minute walk from the nearest parking spot. But there is a hand pump for fresh water, and a woodstove and candles for heat and lighting. It’s a great spot to spend some time living the simple life, and do some hiking or skiing.

8. This little DIY cabin only cost $300 to build. Located in Vermont, Derek Diedricksen wanted to demonstrate how simple it can be to build your own tiny house. With free and recycled materials, he was able to build this 8’ by 8’ with a group of workshop attendees, giving them hands-on experience with tools and design.

9. A very unique cabin, the Funkomatik 513 stands out among the Blue Moon Rising eco-retreats. From the lavender front door and the beautiful white windows to the kitchen shelving and metal roof, this cabin beautifully incorporates reclaimed materials. Just outside the purple door lie trails that wind through the ferns and woods of Garrett County, Maryland.

10. The Riverwood Chalet is one of seven a-frames built along the Middle Fork of the New River in Blowing Rock, NC in the 1970’s. These homes were constructed as a vacation rental community, the Roaring River Chalets. In 2011, the houses were renovated and converted to a planned urban development. At just under 700 square feet, this unique a-frame boasts two balconies over the the river, a loft and a stone fireplace.
