Liberty Cabins

When I was twelve I needed my own space, so I built a bedroom in our backyard around 8’X12′. I framed the bedroom, sheetrock and painted it. I also put carpet down. It was a learning point in my life, I finished my room and even managed to climb up on the roof with shingles that I found in the barn. Ever since then I always had an interest not only in small homes and spaces but how anything can be accomplished if you really put your mind into it. To this day the room that I built for myself still stands and it has its new use as my mothers laundry room and still looks just as good as the first day that I finished it.


I love to read all the blogs about tiny homes and cabins and take everything that the tiny house community has to say into consideration. We at Liberty Cabins hope to eventually build smaller cabins down to the size of 12 feet to accommodate the XS tiny house fanatics and we will consider it a challenge. We hope to keep our prices low and eventually accept some form of payment option to make it easier for all those interested to buy a tiny cabin. As of now we have two different models of the same floor plan one is all pine with cedar bathroom, the other cabin has a pine ceiling and sheetrock walls. All of our cabins are built on custom built trailers made specifically for the cabins here at our shop. The sheetrock walled cabin is priced at $35k and the all pine cabin is priced at $40k.

    • Have you heard of a travel trailer? Like that, only better quality and more long term living. Some people’s work or retirement takes them around the country. This way, you take your home with you.

      Or maybe you’re placing the home temporarily, so it needs to be mobile. There are lots of reasons.

    • They are too small to be ‘legal’ in most towns, so by putting them on a trailer they are classed as a RV or trailer or motor home. Still not ‘legal’ in *most* places.

  1. Too bad this website is beginning to post commercials which are thinly veiled as articles. This tiny house looks pretty pre-fab to me, not much character.

    • Clarke, this is not a paid ad, however if you have been following the Tiny House Blog for very long you will realize that I have shown off businesses building tiny houses and cabins from day one. If you read about the blog and how it got started that was the initial purpose. Rather than complain my suggestion is to start your own blog and publish what you like, or if you can’t do that at least visit one of the many other blogs out there and find one you relate to. Here are a few suggestions, Tiny House Design, Tiny House Swoon, Tiny House Talk and there are many more if you do some research. As a blogger you can’t please everyone. So find what you enjoy!

      • Thanks, Kent. I appreciate knowing about various suppliers and designs. These guys are much closer to me.

        Thanks for the extra links too.

      • I did a quick calculation of cost per sq foot, and the $40k/300sqft. is at $133/sqft, not bad. And these are very cool, thanks for the excellent Tiny House Blog. Here is south Florida we have brutal heat in summer (my roof measured 160degreesF recently) until I put a white coating on, and a tiny house must be insulated and a/c (floor vents would be easy in such as the Liberty Cabins. I also calculated that to rent in our area at $40k cost would pay for itself in about 4 years. Not bad, and code compliance may not be too difficult if it is classified as an rv. If they had zero percent financing I believe many would seriously consider this cabin.

      • You go, Kent! Very well said. I don’t understand the complainers on this site so much. Like the people complaining about that really cool series about boats and saying they aren’t really tiny houses. Geez…. If they don’t like something, they don’t have to read it. There are way more serious problems going on the world right now, if they want to complain about something. Ah, sending them loving kindness. Keep posting this stuff, all of it! I love it and so do the majority of the people who read it. : )


      • I’ve discovered in my own life that anytime you put yourself out there, you are going to get criticism and complaints from people who think they could do it better- yet 99.9% of them never will do anything. Your response was perfect. If you don’t like this site or think it could be better- go do your own. Meanwhile – I love almost every single blog entry. So keep up the good work, Kent.

      • Here’s what I read from Clarke’s post, besides his obvious unhappiness with what he must see as ‘another builder’ (ie: another ‘ad’)…
        This little blog has GROWN, over the years, and has a huge amount of regular AND new readers. Many of us, the regulars, having been around some half a dozen or so years thereabouts, have read every article from day one, and, of course, after a few years, just about everything that can be covered HAS been covered, in duplicate and triplicate. You understandably have to start doing the content/balancing juggle, seeking out the ‘untold’ (which is getting harder to find) and having to choose from the overtold-but-always-nice-lifestyle stories or fresh hook on the ‘how can I get one of these’ reads, beit from a buyer or builder perspective.
        Kent, I salute you on the choices you have had – and continue – to make, in keeping TinyHouseBlog fresh and entertaining, warm and informative. ABove all, you’re doing so while being a HUMAN BEING, just like the rest of us, and THAT is a GOOD THING, because I can appreciate the advertisers you have here, in both the traditional ad placement AND the informative ‘ad-ticle’, as long as it tells something new, or about a new, facet of tiny house creation/living, staying RELEVANT!
        I’m one of those people that when I am a fan of something, like when I was a teenager/twenty-something and into horses BIG TIME, all mags I picked up on the subject were like manna from heaven, and I loved the ads almost as much as the ‘articles’. But some consider, more strictly, that there is a line between advertising and the ‘meat’ of a publication, and it’s apparent Clarke is worried he’s seeing a favorite ‘read’ (place) becoming like so many ‘other’ sites/blogs after the first ‘meaty’ years, where they become so overladen with the paying-the-bills type ads you can hardly find any content anymore…
        I don’t think Clarke meant to be mean, and I certainly don’t feel Clarke deserved anyone to be mean in response to HIS comment.
        I think he has every right to voice his CONCERN, I just wish he had said more to that effect. But some folks say one sentence to convey a whole paragraph of what they feel, and it can get taken the wrong way.
        I’m the opposite, everyone here knows! I tend to write the whole essay, so to speak, to make sure NOBODY can take what I’m saying any other way than how Im saying it! LOL
        That’s going to be a problem for me, as time progresses, as my MS is making it harder and harder for me to be both coherent AND concise (some are breathing sighs of relief, I HEAR you! LOL)…
        I think you’re doing one heckuva great jb, Kent. But I do hope we can all feel free to make an honest commentnow and then, as Clarke did, and not get shot out of the water for it without a friendly ‘how’s that, Clarke? What makes you feel this way?’ etc., first. Because we need to recognize and try to remember some of us as ‘long time’ members and give ourselves – and EACH OTHER – a little bit of that deserved freedom to speak honestly, whether for bad or good.

        If I’m wrong, I guess I can handle the response. If I’m right, *I* don’t need any.
        But it would be nice to hear others tell Clarke he is welcome to speak, even when he is voicing his unhappiness.
        It’s the good and bad (because everyone of us sees it all a little bit differently) that make up for good and HEALTHY debate, remember?

        God Bless.

    • You must be new to Tiny Houses. Welcome. There is certainly a lot more to do; Tiny doesn’t mean bored.

      Your living room area could have a music system, and projector for Apple TV and Netflix (see YouTube video by relaxshacks re guy who has very small, but legal home in Mass. His entertainment system has all of the above on a wall shelf about 4″ x 12″!) Plus, there’s reading, surfing the net, socializing, etc. Unfortunately, you won’t have room for a pool table or 65″ TV, but you can find a local pub that offers these.

      I hope this info is helpful.

  2. I’m impressed.
    – What kind of toilet?
    – Possible to get a washer/dryer in that big closet?
    – Would like to see how big the living area is at the base of the stairs.

    I’ll go check the site to try and find that info. But it looks really nice for the price.

    • Mike,
      In the past few years, the ‘new gadget’ and gizmo builders out there are creating some AMAZING new things, to suit ‘tiny houses’ as well as the adventurous and ‘alternate’ kinds (ie: cave homes, yurts, treehouses, etc.)! Not long ago I saw an article and pics on a washer/dryer COMBO – it does BOTH the washing and drying – and it is now smaller and made for tinier spaces (like a little closet? YES!)…
      It’s astounding how much WORK we can get out of the ‘smaller’ (and less power-gulping) versions, and they’re getting more and more available everyday…

      Look at computers: in less than 10 years, a person has gone from a CPU desktop system of several big pieces (geez, remember MONITORS??? and I don’t mean the thin screen LCD/LED things either; my 20″ monitor up until 2006 weighed about 80 pounds, no lie)…and lots of power cables to the nimble-but-adequate (for 90% of internet purposes AND many major work-related apps and tasks) Apple iPad (and Samsungs, etc), and all kinds of pocket-sized gadgets and peripherals that can ably stand in for the larger/bulkier and power-hungry, printers, scanners, cameras, multimedia players, etc. of the recent past – EVEN substituting for televison!
      And, ummm, I’m sure a ‘smaller but capable’ toilet is available, too. πŸ˜‰

  3. Love the layout, and seeing steps that lead to the loft rather than a ladder. With storage unit under the stairs as done here, truly no space has been wasted. The pine interior is so beautiful, i can almost catch a drift of it’s essence in the air! πŸ™‚

    • That’s my thing too. The steps. I have 2 labs and they would whine all night if they couldn’t get to me in the sleeping area (we are a pack, you know) , so I’m always looking for tiny’s with stairs instead of ladders.

      I am considering a yurt as well with built in lift style bedroom.

  4. Very good looking cabins. I like the stairs, they look safer than most tiny home ladders or stairs. Your prices are not bad for the economy of the west coast, but down in the southeast we can get a fixer-upper house and lot for about 45k. Getting a job is the question here.

  5. Great looking Tiny House on wheels ! I wonder if the stairs could have slide out
    feature to double as storage drawers ? I love
    the light/fan with the leaf design.Keep up the good work to help others who share the dream of having a place of their own without being a mortgage debt slave !

    • looks like there’s a storage area under the stairs—-that works, and drawers would work too. I like the STAIRS! Not everyone feels comfortable with a ladder.

  6. I love this! Great design! Their website has more pictures. And it looks like there is a good amount of room in the living area. I really love the Closet and pantry–I may hvae made them just a few inches thinner so the hallway isn’t tight feeling, but that feature is a huge bonus I haven’t seen much of in these tiny homes. If this were mine, I would also want a tiny tub/shower combo. Very nice job on these!

  7. Wow, this one I could manage. Climbing up a ladder would eventually lead to me selling, but, actual stairs? YES, and the space is big enough for me and my fur babies. Would need a railing upstairs so they wouldn’t walk off tho’. Beautiful tiny house, just perfect for me!

  8. Can you get this 14 or 16 ft wide with no loft just vaulted ceiling and maybe a little bit longer for a twin size bed? I really like this one ……very simple and elegant.

  9. These appear to be really, really nice homes. Real quality and great design. I particularly love the stairway and entry. The fan light is really practical and beautiful, too. Great tiny homes! Thanks for sharing your company with us.

  10. I’m loving this design. As so many have pointed out, having REAL stairs is quite the bonus given that so few others actually do take this step – no pun intended!

    I appreciate the fact that you have a flushing toilet, however, maybe you could have an alternate composting system for those who want to be a little bit less “connected” to the infrastructure and more connected to the environment?

    I have some questions, as well…

    Like how difficult would it be to set up an avenue for wind generation and solar panels, both being self-contained within the confines of the whole unit? I am not familiar with the implementation of the tech, but I love the idea of having it available for not being connected.

    (Mind you, it’s almost 2am, and I read this without my glasses, so if any of this has been covered, please forgive me!)

    I would love to have a Tiny Home… But, being on Disability and not working and having quite a few economic issues still to overcome, the amazing price tag for a unit such as these (Well Worth It, btw…) may as well have another zero or at least double what the current price tag is.

    I am trying to figure out how to accomplish some kind of a Tiny Home here in Central Illinois because of my Aspergers Syndrome and PTSD not always being conducive to “being around people.”

    Any workable suggestions?


    • Zach,
      I could’ve wrote your post: loving tiny houses but needing stairs not ladders, etc., and being in Central Illlinois, on a hugely-limited income (SSDI), disability including spinal damage and MS, hoping to find a way, somehow, to segue into a tiny home affordably yet without compromising too much quality, etc.
      And I, too, have difficulty being around ‘people’ unless I have had a week’s notice, so to speak, to get myself psyched up, prepared for it… I don’ttrust anyone I don’t already know, anymore, because I’ve witnessed AND been a victim of too much disrespect, manipulation, even physical violence, from assorted people in random public places.
      The level of disregard for ‘other human beings’ by mostly young people, more often small children, today is shocking, even without several traumatic personal incidents to make it that much worse for some of us. I’ve been accused of being ‘paranoid’, but often the same person discovers, when along with me on a public outing, just how much verbal abuse/insults and blatant intolerance is out there, that disabled/special needs/elderly are victims to on a daily basis. ;-(

      Anyway, saw your comment, wanted to say ‘hey, I’m with you’ as a fellow, disabled Central Illinoisan, tiny-house dreamer!

      I, too, am always looking for the ultimate win-win for me and my particular needs/expectations: a ‘small’, rather than ‘tiny’, perhaps, with a ground floor bedroom (but the STAIRS in this one really do make a difference!) rather than a loft, and something LOW COST and attractive without tradng too much away in quality, etc..

      • Nothing ‘proposed’. Simply keeping a keen eye out for the fresh on handmade, new builders, (and/or materials/constriction, etc.) and watching prices, via here and elsewhere!
        I think I’ll KNOW the ‘right one’ for me when I see it (and the wishlist checkboxes fill up!).

        Hmmm. But maybe I didn’t understand or answer your question precisely?
        Suppose that’s up to you, then, to clarify…. πŸ˜‰

  11. My favorite thing with your design has to be the long and plenty space those side gables offer the loft! Other loft areas don’t appeal to me at all, with the sloping ‘ceiling’ so close to the sides of the mattress you’ve only a narrow spot of ‘vertical’ space to wake in and get out of/down from… fine for just sleeping for some, but me – I like to RELAX in bed with a good book (or my Kindle) an afternoon, or I might enjoy spending an hour laying on my stomach and birdwatching out the peak-gable window!
    I NEED a little more ‘air’ between me and the ceiling, I guess. Your loft space makes me even think having a tiny house with a loft LIKE YOURS might be doable, even though I’m hellbent on MY tiny having a groundfloor bed ‘roomlet’ (for those BAD MS days/nights my feet and hands won’t be very climb friendly)…

  12. I would love to know how tall the loft is? I’m guessing 3.5 to 4 feet but I’d like to know exactly how high it is at the tallest point. This would help me greatly! Thank you.
