When I get fed up with the rat race, I go to this site and dream of my future retirement to the simple life.

I'm planning to build a little Summer/guest cabin (small enough to be a shed legally) down by river that my property ends at in a few years. I've found a lot of inspiration on that site.

If you build it they will come. We have a small offgrid cottage on our rural property we moved to about a decade ago, and we see more of our family and friends now then when we lived 10 minutes away from them.

Technically, there's a "cabin" on this island. Does this count?

I feel this way sometimes as well.

My housemates have the Cabin Porn book, it's got some cooler stories in it about people who were able to fulfill their dream. Not all required lots of money so there is hope still.

That is why I am building my own. It has been a labor of love for the last couple of years but I only have about $10,000 invested in it so far and I am almost done. I should have about $12,000 total into it. I can take it with me and just buy plots of land that i can park it on to get away. Part of that $12,000 also includes a 1 ton truck I bought at a steal to haul it.

Image not mine. I'll post when I am done.

Will be very interested in seeing the end result of your tiny home project, doitnstyle1. $12K for the structure and a vehicle to haul it with is indeed a bargain.

Here is where I am at right now:
Trailer was purchased for $150. I added $400 of extra steel to reinforce frame. Axles are costing me about $700.
I bought the front door from A Restore for about $40
Image

Siding is done a bit at a time. Almost done.
Image

Interior stairway pushes up and slides to the left out of the way. Full sized tub made out of a Watering trough.
Image

My Tiny Stove purchased from Sportsman's Guide for $104.00
Image

I have done a lot more work just haven't taken a recent pictures. much more on the interior done. I already have a lot of the materials to finish and just need to find time to work with some asssitance.

Awesome build doitnstyle1, that looks like it will be a mighty fine tiny house when finished.

And since I am here, how about John Neeman's Birth of a House video.

Those little tiny house kits are awesome. My girlfriend rented one for a year in someone's backyard when she went back to school. I loved visiting it. If you live alone, you can't beat one since they are bigger than many city apartments.
