Wyoming Cabin in the Woods

I bought the Little Cabin in 2003. It was a one room 20 x 30 ft. hunting cabin without indoor plumbing or electric and I paid $95,000. Utilities existed at the road about 100 feet from the cabin. My son and I used it as a summer camp cabin and each year I added an upgrade. One year water to a hydrant out back, another year electric to a power pole, another year a septic system. When visiting we would run a 100 ft electric cord to the interior to run a small electric heater (the wood stove was unsafe) and a small refrigerator. The homeowner’s association would not allow a compost toilet system because of my close proximity to the adjacent stream.

When I first bought the cabin, it contained old sleeping mattresses and had a broken window. Mice had moved in and it required deep cleaning to be habitable as a camp cabin. The cabin is situated on nearly 4.5 acres surrounded by National Forest, has year round access and is 3 minutes from a small Western town with amenities. Occasionally, the town runs horses and cattle down main street changing pastures! There is even a local rodeo every weekend in the summer as well as packhorse races for entertainment. Winter brings cross country skiing and animal watching.

Swedish Mobile Hunting Cabin

by Kent Griswold on September 23rd, 2009. 9 Comments

Alex from Sweden at EcoHouseFilm sent me a mobile hunting cabin that is for sale if you are in his neck of the woods. If you’re far away like I am, it is nice for tiny house idea generation.

I like the simplicity of the design, the basic porch that gives you some protection as you enter the house. The cottage has a simple  and usable living area, a bedroom and kitchenette. It has a small heater that keeps it comfortably warm.

To view the listing go here, I used the google translator to interpret the posting.
