Arched Cabins

Quick and efficient kit cabins are appealing to people who want to live in a tiny house or have a tiny house as a small investment property, studio space or rental property. However, they tend to be on the pricey side. Arched Cabins, a growing company located in both Houston, Texas and Timberon, New Mexico have created these tiny arched cabins for a low price.

Each of these colorful cabins can be adapted to fit your space requirements and needs. The cabins have been built to be used as artist studios, retirement homes, hunting lodges and tiny houses. Each can be built as an open floor plan or with a loft. The costs of their five standard widths are actually quiet reasonable and include all structural components, sheeting, insulation and construction instructions. A 12×20 foot cabin is $3,600, a 14×20 foot cabin is $4,000 and a 12×40 foot cabin is $7,200. Larger cabins from 16 feet to 24 feet wide range in price from $4,400 to $12,800 for the kits. Shipping is added on later and is adjusted for fuel costs and distance. Various foundations can be used with an Arched Cabin including poured concrete, wood pier and beam as well as pier foundations made of steel. To save even more money, the smaller units can be built in one day with minimal labor.

The company currently has a promotion going on now where you can get a 14×20 Arched Cabin Kit for $3,695. The kit includes all structural steel components, insulation, Superspan PBR Sheeting and all hardware for construction.

A day in the life of our friend Colin. From a hob to the great outdoors of Garrett County and back. Not too shabby. This 425 square foot cabin is eco friendly, featuring recycled heart pine from the Carnegie Railroad shed. See different models and looks at our website hobbitatspaces.com. Or go see 13 different Hobs in person at Blue Moon Rising in McHenry, Maryland. A special thanks to everyone at Blue Moon Rising, Moon Shadow Cafe, and Colin Ware Hob-Nobbin from Hobbitat Spaces on Vimeo. interior of cabin

SoulSurvivorX2 Tiny Cabin

Have you ever considered having an off-grid tiny house ready for the Zombie Apocalypse? Mike and Cindy of SoulSurvivorX2 are currently fixing up their own 12×26 foot home on wheels to have as a secure and secret hideaway from the walking dead and other nefarious people.

While the SoulSurvivorX2 couple seem to be initially known for guns, prepping gear and sexing up SHTF, take a closer look at their videos on YouTube. They have a ton of useful (and fun) information on camping, backpacking, health and wellness, simple living and now—a tiny house tucked away in the woods. The couple work as real estate agents in Jacksonville, Florida and live with no debt while enjoying the outdoors and living on their own terms. They believe in being prepared for any situation, own the quintessential bug-out bags and are now fixing up their own bug-out cabin.

The cabin on wheels was towed to their land surrounded by trees and inhabited by their free range chickens. Mike and Cindy’s off-grid survival retreat is now hoisted up on blocks and they are installing new doors and screens, building new stairs and installing a metal corrugated roof. The open floor plan will include new walls, a kitchen, bath and loft. Solar panels will be installed and water will be heated with propane. Cindy even painted the door with camouflage and palm frond stencils to hide it away in their forested prepper retreat.
