A-frame cottages have always been popular, mainly due the ease and affordability of their construction. This was the idea behind the Lushna cottage, a modern, green and affordable alternative to a tent created by the Slovenian company of the same name. These lovely wooden cottages are great for year-round camping, and enjoying the great outdoors in style.


Lushna Villa measures 13 by 13 feet, and is 11.5 feet high, which yields a livable space of 110 square feet. The walls are made from untreated, exterior-grade larch wood, while spruce wood was used for the flooring. According to the designers all the insulation is also ecological though they did not specify what kind of materials were used. The cottage also features a ventilation system, a panoramic glass wall or mosquito netting, and electrical outlets. The Lushna is designed to be installed using ground screws, which greatly reduces its footprint, and makes it almost like pitching a tent. The interior is large enough for a king-size bed, so camping inside one must truly be a royal experience.


Besides the basic version, the company also offers a so-called Lushna Villa Green model, which features a green roof, and the Lushna Sauna model, which is fitted with an infrared sauna. And for those who want a larger vacation home, Lushna also offers bigger cottages through their website.

The main aim of designing these cottages was to offer people a way to engage in eco-tourism in comfort. It’s aimed at individuals, as well as large property owners who wish to find a cost-effective way to create a village of eco-friendly and sustainable cottages. The basic version of the Lushna cottage costs around $4,453, which is very affordable.
