Tiny Home: 150 Sq. Ft. Contemporary Weekend Cabin

This cozy, little 150 square foot home away from home is the perfect weekend cabin.  Built for a Finnish family that live nearby, it offers an escape from the norm.  With ample seating that converts to a large bed, you could sleep up to 4 people, if needed.  And while the ceilings are not that tall, it does offer quite a bit of storage in large, deep drawers, along with overhead shelves and lofted nooks.

The kitchen is truly the focal point in this design, with large windows that allow a cascade of sunshine to fill the little space.  With only the truly required necessities, such as a 2-burner gas stove, small sink, and pantry, this kitchen can provide ample space for food prep, work projects, or a spot for your laptop.

A small wood burning stove completes the basics and provides for a warm and intimate night.  Or simply use it to take the chill off after you return from outside.  As you’ll notice, there is no bathroom or shower inside.

(Outdoor showers can be a thing of luxury, as well.  Take a look at a few of these for inspirational ideas.)
