Imre Kovacs, a reader of Jetson Green and architect/builder of this weekend getaway cabin, shared his project with us recently, saying it cost $4,350 to build, including labor for one worker. Located in Pomaz, Hungary, the 107-square-foot cabin was built with mostly materials reclaimed from demolition sites (timber, bricks, roof tile, rocks, etc), as well as new roof insulation, two pieces of glass, and linseed oil to treat the wood. Kovacs owns the cabin with his wife, and they use the place to escape the city. There’s a composting toilet, but water is provided from a well downhill and lighting is from candles.international, reclaimed, residential, shed, tiny house
