Makes me want to get a couple of acres in the woods somewhere and a 1/2 dozen of these small homes/huts and start a colony of cool people who can live small but think big. Love it. Thank you! M.

A small wooden hut or cottage can be called a , especially if it's in a remote or wooded place. Your grandfather's on a lake might be your favorite place to visit in the summer.

The contents of each hut included a wood stove, axe, broom, grain scoop for removing snow, a table for cooking, and a Coleman stove and Coleman lantern. A small wooden potty was built and installed close to the huts. Included, also, at each hut was a hut log book for individuals to record comments about their trip. After a year of entries, the log books have become fun reading for hut visitors in the evening sitting around the wood stove. To properly educate users about the huts, a manual was prepared.

22 Beautiful Wood Cabins and Small House Designs for DIY Projects
Here we refer specifically to the long and narrow rectangular house plans, mainly one-story horizontal designs. We’ve seen a lot of these modern minimalist designs in the Nordics countries such as Finland, Norway and Sweden but they are popping up everywhere now. The 3 examples below are from 3 different countries. But they all have one design element in common – a small part of the building is open to outdoors on both sides (like a central viewing corridor, sort of), either permanently (no walls) or protected by glass walls. And with the narrow profile, you can see nature on both sides of the house without leaving your chair. Ability to easily incorporate this element, we believe, is one of the main attractions of this type of architecture. It lets you add a highly desirable home feature – a covered deck or an outdoor living room – without deviating from the simple plan of the wooden rectangular building. These are very cost efficient and very modern designs.
The flat roof offers totally different aesthetics, and if you’re attracted to minimalism and want to build a small home on a small budget, this could be the most affordable type of design for you as it requires less of structural wood and is easier to build. There are many benefits of these low and narrow designs. They are convenient for older people as all quarters are on the ground floor, and they are also the most energy efficient as they are easy to heat or cool. Elongated rectangular architecture is also a common plan for prefabs. In addition, flat roof designs can be the most suitable for locations that experience heavy winds (high wind loads) such as oceanfront, high mountain ridges, cliff locations, and widely open planes.

This New Zealand home (below) was conceived as a wooden container. But it’s much more than that. With its lowering decks, it becomes a vista home – with views over both the ocean and the countryside. And when you’re ready to leave, the decks and the shutters all close, and it becomes a sealed wooden container in your absence. The house is pure wood, inside and out, in the tradition of New Zealand craftsmanship. Stunning, isn’t it?Famed British furniture designer helmed the second hut. Made of cork, it also has a narrow, Japanese-style wooden porch and contemporary ribbon windows. “Whenever I think about going to the country for the weekend, I start imagining a small house with everything needed for a short stay. The dream usually collapses when I think of the complexity of building a new house, but with this project I realized there was a chance to design such a house as a product rather than a one-off,” he says. Therefore, this model has a bit more to offer, including a wood-burning stove, tatami-style floors (which serve as a bed and couch of sorts), a kitchenette, eating area, and bathroom.
