Little House Project
Kara Reed is the woman behind these thoughtfully inspired triangular A-Frame shaped backyard cabin. Located in Collierville, TN, believe it or not, she actually built the whole thing for $1,200, and believes you could do it for even less! Take a look at the section drawing and photos here, and be sure to catch the video on page 2!
The idea was to keep it AFFORDABLE to build, EASY and QUICK to build, and to have it so that it could be altered for different uses, or added to, rather effortlessly. The total cost for a cabin like this, soup to nuts, is right around $1200- and that’s using city lumber pricing, meaning, elsewhere, it’d cost less to build. Add in some salvaged, free, or recycled materials, and you could EASILY build this under $1000. The plans, should you choose to pick up a set, also recommend, and explain, some other versions, or changes that could be made, so as to include more space, a bathroom, a larger loft, an easy addition/extension, and so on. The cabin’s main base is 80 Square Feet (10′ wide, by 8′ deep). When its roof opens up and its legs are dropped down to transform one end of it into a porch with roll/drop-down mosquito nets that velcro in place, the cabin increases to 110 square feet.
