2. Praise the Minimalism
Similar to most of the tiny log cabins, this cute pine-and-cedar bungalow (on the picture above) is constructed atop a metal truck trailer. Can you believe it features a kitchen counter with a propane one-burner, a sleeping loft for 2 people, solar-powered lamps, a shower, composting toilet, and a sink?

9. Hiding Deep in the Woods
Far in the woods of Northern California, this primitive wooden bungalow is a great example of how to build a home with reclaimed wood and old windows from real ships.
10. Quaint Cabin in the Forest
One of the key ideas underlying in the concept of the tiny homes cabins is to live more sustainable. In this line of thinking, having more windows means more sunlight and lower electricity bills!
11. Rustic A-frame, Hand-built Cabin
There are so many things that make us easy to love the A-frame cabin, maybe for some A-frame can be an investment that can be marketed but for me probably because the shape of the A-frame rooftops is very beautiful to be photographed.
12. Squared Studio Cottage
Located deep in the forest of the Tyringham Valley, this tiny wooden studio is the perfect hideaway spot for every family. The large deck would fit up to 10 people so you can all freely enjoy the bird songs while sunbathing.
13. The Elf’s Hut
It might not offer the luxury the other tiny cabins do, however, it is a true escape from the stress of everyday life.

I’m thinking that resting in this extremely tiny but magnificent A-frame cabin would lend itself to beautiful A-Frame cabins you can be dreaming and the sense that you have just time-traveled to a different world.
15. Quaint Tiny Log Cabin
This hand-built escape – limited on space, high on the charm – gives you the feeling for a substantial construction thanks to the solid wooden material used.

This lively, colorful bungalow is the perfect choice for a summer home at the seaside. The straw roof provides enough shade so you won’t get burned while the deck is pretty spacious to enjoy a glass of Mojito.
20. The Petite Family Mansion
21. Mediterranean Hideaway
This primitive, rustic nest offers everything needed but still keeps you away from the busy city life.
22. Alpine Style Tiny Cottage
Quadratic in shape, this construction allows full usage of the available space. In order to minimize the irregularity to the landscape, a considerable part of the cabin is lifted above the ground.
Depart from the city with a short rest on one of these exceptional and inspirational tiny green cabins. Or even building one of these for you and your family? This surely is a lot of people’s dream life.
