Hungarian design collective Hello Wood has created a compact cabin inspired by the tiny house movement. Named Kabinka, the project is intended to serve as a simple and affordable weekend retreat, additional bedroom, or office, and starts at €10,000 (roughly US$12,000).
The Kabinka’s cost is definitely low, but not unprecedented, and it’s in the same price range as the Magenta DIY tiny house. It’s mostly made from wood with sandwich panel insulation, but also has corrugated metal on the exterior. Its glazing includes porthole-style windows and the interior decor is simple and utilitarian.
The tiny cabin comes in four sizes: 12 sq m (130 sq ft), 14.9 sq m (160 sq ft) 17.3 sq m (186 sq ft), and a not-so-tiny “XL” version measuring 20 sq m (215 sq ft) that boasts a 9.6-sq-m (106-sq-ft) patio.READ MORE
