This amazing micro cabin treehouse is located in Tregaminion, St. Keverne, England, United Kingdom. It’s set in an ash tree with incredible views of the countryside and the sea. It’s right by Falmouth Bay so I’m sure there are some incredible sunsets.

The treehouse itself has a double bed, seating area, micro kitchen, and bathroom with composting toilet. Access to the cabin is via a wooden staircase.

A Treehouse Poem

A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.

A street house, a neat house,
Be sure and wipe your feet house
Is not my kind of house at all-
Let’s go live in a tree house.

Shel Silverstein

The V House is a vacation experience in Mexico with views of the ocean at Yelapa Bay.

It’s on the Verana property and there are 3 available micro cabins.

I just think it would be awesome to have this style of structure on my own piece of property as an alternative to a treehouse.

If the interior of this tiny cube house is confusing, don’t worry, I was pretty baffled by it myself until I read the description.

It has three floors, so when you first walk in you have to take the stairs to the first floor.

That’s where you have the living room with TV and the kitchen.

Go up another level and you have the bedroom.

On the top floor there’s even an area with a 360 degree view!

More info, photos and booking calendar if you want to vacation in the cubehouse here.

At some point in my life, I’m going to make it a point to make it here! I’d LOVE to stay in this house. How about you?

“Designed like an umbrella perched on the side of a mountain, the vaulted ceilings and glass walls let you feel like you are floating in the trees with the hummingbirds and finches! Artsy and modern yet woodsy and rustic, this is a fantastic escape from fast paced DC or Richmond city life.” (source)

The gypsy micro caravan I showed you earlier is a bit too small for full time living but this one seems spacious enough to actually live a simple life in much like a tiny house on wheels or on a foundation. I could see myself living in something like this if it’s just me or even Andrea and I but it’s definitely too small IMO to have a family in. In that case I’d change it up towards a small house around 800 sq. ft. or so.

This to me is an absolute dreamy apartment. I love the white color throughout because it makes it feels more open and spacious. And I also like the location because it’s by the beach. If you know me, you know I love being close to the water.. Especially the ocean. Another reason I like this conversion so much is that it used to be a basement! And for me it’s always exciting to see people convert their garages, basements, sheds and turn them into something so beautiful, useful and functional like this.

This gypsy caravan isn’t really completely set up for full time living. At least not for me. But it does offer you a queen bed, mini-fridge, tea & coffee and separate bathroom/toilet. I think it’s great as a micro guesthouse or cabin to have in the backyard of your current home. It can also double as a getaway. At home away from home sort of thing. If I wanted to make it a little more permanent I’d probably build another one right beside it to use as the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities. Then one more as a really tiny office space where I can work, write, read and study. How about you?

For me, this is more amazing than a brand spanking new tiny home with materials from any of the big name home improvement stores (although I still enjoy those a lot, too). There’s just something about taking some old and putting in the labor to bring it back to life that makes it extra special. More info on this circus caravan turned to tiny cabin here.

I thought you’d also enjoy this modern day version of a Thoreau cabin. No amenities just pure and simple. A micro cabin to sleep and write in. Personally I’d love to spend some time with myself in something like this. Maybe even use that time to write, reflect and plan. How about you? This would also be really cool to have in your current backyard if you’re allowed to. It’s pretty stealthy too. Looks like a tiny barn shed for storage. More info on this modern day solar cabin here.

For me living simply in a micro cabin like this one off the grid is a little unrealistic. This is mostly because because there’s no kitchen although there is a grill on the property to cook and you can use the outdoor space to prep, etc. Or even create an additional tiny kitchen structure to fix this issue so it’s definitely possible for me with a few adjustments and additions. On the property is a nearby solar shower and composting toilet which is pretty awesome. More info on this micro cabin here.

I just love this 2 story log cabin home. It has two loft style bedrooms on the second floor and there’s a downstairs sleeping area too. The bathroom is pretty modern for a log cabin in my opinion but I think it’s perfect. I’d love to have a small cabin like this on my own property somewhere in a peaceful setting near a lake or in the forest. One of my favorite parts about it is the upstairs balcony.

This rustic and modern tiny house has its own entrance and private front yard which is gated. The owners built it on their property because they always wanted to build a house themselves and they did it with the help of friends. When you first enter the house you’re in the kitchen, living area and that’s also where the bathroom is. Go upstairs and you’ve got a sweet loft with a queen bed.

It was built using mostly reclaimed materials and furnishings. Some of the wood, trim and shelving came from an old shed that used to be on the property. More “unwanted” wood was harvested from high end construction job sites. Some of the windows came from an old horse farm structure. And the kitchen stove and refrigerator came from a museum.

Learn more, see more pics and if you’re interested you can actually stay in this tiny house.

I think this two story tiny barn house with a loft is a great example of tiny house design and living because there’s no unnecessary space left in designs like this. You get what you absolutely need and nothing else. And this one is well done, too with beautiful decorations. The only downside is that in this case you’ve got a separate structure as an outhouse and shower that’s just a few steps away. And it has nice views of the mountains and sunsets next to Joshua Tree National Park.

This tiny barn is available to stay in, too. Click here for more info.

Even though these aren’t tiny I thought you’d enjoy these awesome train homes. To me it’s always interesting and fun to see something old still being used especially in such a beautiful way like this. These are currently used as a pretty pricey vacation spot and as you can tell from the photos you can actually sleep up to 12 people between the two trains. Seems like people have been using them for marriages and other events too. I can see it being a really fun place to have a family gathering. But this also serves as a great example of what we can do with things that already exist.
