Cabin Habit Nissen Hut Inspired Cabin

The design of the shed is drawn from my love of all things vintage, urban-industrial and quirky. I love all things mid-century so it’s basically an improved and residentially styled Nissen hut, fully insulated and lined. I couldn’t find one to buy, so I got one made. It has an airy feeling inside, and yet the generous arc of the curved varnished ply ceiling cocoons you like a womb.” – Abigail

  1. How much is the home entirely with materials? It doesn’t look that spendy.

      The original website says “more than £500” which translates to “more than $800). Not sure how much more.

    I am an individual widow. I have many single friends who want to live independently in a single person shelter. I am very interested in your products.

    How do you insulate this metal tube and deal with condensation?

  5. Love this. We build small structures, similar to your Nissen Hut. We call them Conestoga Huts, with an inside footprint of 60 square feet. They are used for relief/transition housing for people in need. We’ve been wanting to make something like the Conestoga, but bigger, like your hut. Thanks for sharing and creating your inspiration!
