Speaking of tiny prefabs, Modern Cabana — the same company behind last year’s Sunset Modern Cottage Idea House — has a 10′x12′ demo cabana for sale. The UC 10×12 model retails from $16,375, but this demonstration version is selling with a 25% discount. The Modern Cabana includes a french door, clear cedar siding, denim wall insulation, rigid roof insulation, maple interior paneling, and bamboo flooring.
Sunset has the story on this off-grid, low-impact, affordable shelter built in the wilderness near Joseph, Oregon. The modern structure of 130 square feet, not counting the deck, was designed by Ryan Lingard and built in a couple weeks for roughly $10,000. Signal Shed has a wood stove, metal roof, cedar rainscreen, reused windows, portable toilet, and operable shutters.
This modern residence, monastic and fantastic at the same time, is called E.D.G.E., an Experimental Dwelling for a Greener Environment. It’s small, with 480 square-feet of space, yet the space appears plentiful as it transforms to suit a variety of uses. Plus it’s beautiful inside and out and has some incredible green elements.
