This Looks Like A Charming Little Cabin. And It Is… But It’s So Much More Than That.

If you think that what you see below is just an adorable log cabin, you’d be dead wrong. Sure, it looks like a quaint cabin (in almost every way) but thanks to some sneaky architecture that’s just a disguise. Kelly Davis, the architect who created this faux-cabin, is a visual trickster (and quite possibly a magician).
And the brilliant design isn’t just for show (or to meet the tiny home standards). It’s also efficient:
“The unit at Canoe Bay is heated by a sealed combustion, high efficiency fireplace….there is no furnace. No one has opted for a furnace. The fireplace is rated at over 90% efficient and even through this brutal winter – our temps have consistently been -20 to -35 below zero – the fireplace has easily heated ESCAPE and saved us plenty of money. Remarkably better than even we expected.”
No heating bills, less to clean and an amazing looking cabin? I’m sold and ready to build my own tiny home. As Alek Lisefski of Tiny Project said, “While living in a such a small house, my space, and in turn each area of my life, will be simpler, less chaotic, and free from all but what is essential.”
I think he has a point.
