This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is another Montana Mobile Cabin. Destination to be “Cabin in the Woods.”
Here it is ready to load and go down the road. Watch for us next week on the highways and byways of Western Montana.
On the road again!
Over the river & through the woods…
Glad to have this one in the record books. Ole Man Winter tried to keep us down, but we prevailed!
Happy cabin in the woods!
This cabin was ordered as pictured; no kitchen, no bath; it is what we call a dry cabin. The owner is planning on using it as a bunkhouse with a stove & a couple of bunkbeds. We don’t always get the pleasure of seeing the cabin furnished.
One of my favorite tiny house pre-fab design companies, Cabin Fever, is having a Black Friday sale on their stylish Zip Classic cabin. The Zip is a 120 square foot one-room structure that normally costs $12,500, but is being sold November 23-29, 2013 for only $9,900. The Zip building package comes delivered complete with everything required to build a tiny space.
The insulated wall sections of this cabin come assembled and are easy to bolt together with a few helpers. The building includes a raised foundation with steel brackets and 3/4 inch plywood floors, a 8 foot wide glass sliding door and two windows, 3 inch insulated roof panels with trim and solid wood beams on metal columns, wood paneled interior walls and vinyl tile floors and all the hardware necessary to put the house together. The Zip also has a 12×16 ft front porch made with 1×6 inch planks.
The Zip falls into the category of tiny homes that are permit exempt in most localities and this tiny building can be turned into a guest house, artist studio, yoga room or full-time tiny home. Multiple Zips can also be placed next to each other to create a larger dwelling.

Nelson Tiny Houses is a locally-owned, sustainably-produced company that builds superior tiny houses. As builders and designers, we are inspired by the mountains, forests, lakes and culture of this special part of southern British Columbia. As such, we view building tiny houses as a place where science meets art, where trade meets craft, where a shelter becomes a home.
Whether you are an existing homeowner looking to create a guest house, extra bedroom, office or rental opportunity, or new to owning your own home and looking to find a way that just makes sense, you have come to the right place. Tiny houses are bigger than they appear: they are a political movement, they are a work of art, they are a place to call home. Nelson Tiny Houses: Bigger than just a place to live.
Nelson Tiny House Goals
We build beautiful and functional tiny houses and we want to sell them to you. When you decide to buy a house from us, you will know exactly what you’re getting, how much it costs, and when it will be delivered.
We focus on two basic house models, the “V” house and the Acorn house. Each model has a distinctive shape and basic layout. However, many details will be different in each house. Besides being opportunistic about materials (we salvage and reclaim a large portion of our building material), we think uniqueness is an important characteristic of an amazing house. We happily build to suit your needs.
The Acorn house has a 14′ x 8.5′ footprint, covered front porch, gable roof with dormers, shower, kitchen, and lots of cool custom furniture. Check out the video below for a guided tour.
Starting at $38,000 – ready to live in. If you would like to purchase the Acorn but don’t want it delivered until spring, you can pay 2/3rds of the agreed price and we will store it for you for free until you’re ready. Upon delivery, you will then pay the final 1/3rd of the agreed price. Click here to learn more.

Small cabin (12′ x 16″) and outhouse/shower on secluded island in Puget Sound. Ideal for aperson who is looking to live lightly on the land as it can be hooked to solar or wind energy, your choice!
Cabin has a loft (12′ x 8′) which lends to a roomy main floor. Interior is almost finished with insulation installed and canvas wall coverings. The outhouse has a sawdust toilet and the beginnings of a shower room that is currently used as storage. Very livable for a hardy soul.
