The above room is from a fisherman’s cottage in Gotland, renovated and owned by Swedish cinematographer, Bengan Widell. A rustic space with a unique mix of vintage middle eastern accents, religious wall art and Swedish pine.” – Poppytalk

Here is a cabin which I have built on a flat bed, twin axle trailer. It serves as both a transport method and as facilites for a yurt. It has a fully equipped kitchen with oven, hob grill, fridge, sink, as well as a bathroom and a compost toilet, all with hot and cold running water.” – Handmade Matt

In a small forest in France’s Dordogne, self-taught carpenter Menthé built his home with a living roof and mud walls… The result is a charming and very cozy home that fits perfectly into the woodland.” – Kirsten Dirksen

One of my readers, Dav, sent this too me. It’s an opportunity to peek back in time inside Shackleton’s Antarctic Hut. Thanks again Dav!
“For some time now, the Google Street View team has been systematically mapping and creating imagery that allows us access to some of the world’s most picturesque and historic locales. The latest location takes us literally to the ends of the Earth with a look inside Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton’s survival hut.
Working with the Polar Geospatial Center at the University of Minnesota, as well as the Antarctic Heritage Trust, Google was able to access Shackleton’s surprisingly well-preserved and well-stocked hut. By taking several shots using fish-eye lenses, the Google team was able to stitch together the images to create one 360-degree experience.
The results are nothing short of amazing. Shackleton’s hut was built in 1908, and fellow explorer Robert Scott’s abode, which was also captured by Google, was built in 1912. Both explorers used the huts as a survival base during their explorations and race to be the first to reach the South Pole.”

One of my regular readers, Dav, sent me a link to this great little foot bridge and hut on Instructables. He and I see the basic structure of a little cabin. The instructable shows mostly how to build the bridge but at the end there is a little bit about the hut. Thanks for the link Dav!
