You Can Build This Tiny Wooden Camping Cabin For Just $700

If you’re a camping enthusiast and don’t mind getting a little crafty, you can actually build this tiny wooden cabin yourself. No glue guns or IKEA trips needed.

Blogger Alla Ponomareva and her husband Garrett recently shared an amazing DIY cabin that they built using an online design by Derek “Deek” Diedrickson. The cabin can sleep two people and costs only $700 to build. Construction was completed in just three weeks and the couple used lots of recycled wood and components to make it eco-friendly as well.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

If you want to build your own little cabin, the design is available online and all the construction details are documented on Ponomareva’s blog. If you have a bit of spare time and space for the 80-square-foot cabin, it would make the perfect backyard camping spot.

Don’t feel like getting out the hammer and nails? The bloggers are actually renting the cabin, which is located just outside of Missoula, Montana, through Airbnb for $100 per night – yep, they made back their construction costs in a week of stays.
