When going camping, it can be hard to strike a balance between what “glampers” want and what true nature lovers want. This clever builder constructed a cabin that satisfied both groups.
Shortly after he and his wife moved to Minnesota, Jack Steward designed and built this natural escape in his backyard.
He wanted the A-frame house to be a getaway while he and his partner got used to living in the Midwest.
In this picturesque forest, this tiny cabin looks absolutely stunning. Panels made of heat-treated wood keep out the heat, and a metal roof keeps the snow out.
Indeed, even before you step inside, you realize the lodge will be comfortable. Even though it is his first building, this 10 x 8-foot cabin has everything a person could want in a home.
It has a solitary burner oven for making hot cups of espresso and a wood-consuming oven to keep things warm.
But I didn’t want to use this cabin just for afternoon visits. Jack wanted a getaway in the backyard where he and his partner could spend the night.
Therefore, Jack added a port for a diesel heater to continuously pump heat in. As if that wasn’t enough, his cabin also had electricity, coffee, a couch, and a bed to sleep on.
What’s more, the most astonishing thing about this minuscule lodge is that it just required seven days to construct.
This cabin has become Jack and his wife’s ideal nature getaway in just seven days of work. Take a look at the clever cabin in this short video tour. When you’re done, you’ll be just as envious as we are.
