Reclaimed Tiny Cabin in the Angeles National Forest








This is Daniel Kent’s cabin by a stream in the Angeles National Forest in southern California. He used to be an actor but he has lots of other talents, too. He can brew his own beer, roast his own coffee, teach and run his own business (he owns a coffee shop).

His cabin is home and was designed by a shipbuilder who is good at making the most out of small spaces. The ladder to the loft is retractable, the couch and coffee table turns into a guest bed, and it is made out of reclaimed wood from another cabin that used to be on the property.

  1. Ralph, I don’t know you, but we agree on a lot of stuff. Multi-colored kitchen, not my thing, but LOVE the retractable ladder, the lived in feel, almost like Ralph Lauren’s house (I saw it in a magazine once) only smaller, much much smaller. I could live here. I like looking at all these things because I get ideas from each one, some just make me chuckle. I got an idea from this with the railing of the loft – the translucent glass/plexiglass at the hand rail, LOVE THAT! It’s still open, yet safe, but light passes through. Great. I did notice the old phone, that cracked me up. SO much bulk for a small home. The record player, though would be quite nice. I love old records and the sound they made. I still think that is the best way, besides live, to hear music.

  2. Love it, but not good to have a coffee table, especially in a small place. A fold down table is much better. Coffee tables have been at the root of some pretty severe injuries to kids and adults alike. I will never get to go for walks again or much else thanks to the damage sustained by an ex-coffee table and the same has been for others I know. It’s just dangerous to have a piece of furniture in a place where people are getting up and down and moving around. You can put the TV remotes in a basket under the couch or many other places and not having the table opens up the room and makes it bigger. Other than that it would be the perfect cabin. Well except for the loft, can not climb thanx to foot damage, but you won’t have to worry on that if you do not keep the coffee table;)

    1. That coffee table you’re ranting about is an essential part of the furnishings. If you had read instead of just glancing at it you’d know that the coffee table folds out and snaps into the couch to make a bed. No coffee table, no bed.
