The Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin build in the Forest continues. The aim of this wilderness project is to try and build a one man off-grid tiny house using free reclaimed pallet wood.
It seems like every detail of this cabin is perfect and beautiful. “The site for this 400 sf cabin fronts the East Sound of Orcas Island and features existing mature fir, cedar and madrone trees. It was designed around the concepts of space efficiency, view orientation, and solar access. The cabin incorporates a kitchen, eating area, living area, and bath, as well as a loft bedroom.
I’ve been corresponding with one of our readers in New Zealand about low cost, alternative cabin building ideas with disaster preparedness in mind. We’ve talked about a whole range of ideas such as using straw bales for energy efficiency. The design presented here is DIY friendly, affordable, suitable for a grid-down situation and can be easily moved if desired.
