Though not a tiny house this is small by today’s standards and I think will give you some great ideas. Enjoy!

This Pennsylvania log cabin is a year-round rustic hunting and fishing retreat – the perfect outdoors getaway, and the very definition of aesthetic simplicity. While not teeny-tiny, this little cabin is a marvel of simple efficiency. The 1,200 square feet of living space relies on nooks to delineate space functionally; two small sleeping lofts meet at a spiral staircase, and there are three more beds on the main level.
Furnishings are sparse, as are amenities: this home is completely off the grid. There is no running water – only an outside well and an outhouse. There is no power – the owner brings a generator with him when he’s there, and the log cabin is heated only by the woodstove and fireplace. (The photographer brought a generator with him for this photo shoot, to light the cabin.)
Located two miles from the nearest road, this property came with a run-down cabin the owner initially planned to restore, before he realized a newer place would better serve for a hunting and fishing retreat. The logs come from Estemerwalt Log Homes, a 5th generation, family owned company with 125 years of experience in the lumber industry. The logs for this cabin are milled 10” round eastern white pine, and made the voyage to their final home here several logs at a time, due to the remote location of this property.
This is one home that fits its surroundings perfectly!
