Garden Tiny Cabin


  • 261 SF
  • 201 SF Deck
  • 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath
  • Width 30′, Height 12′, Depth 17′

The garden cabin is designed to maximize views, and the large front deck supports an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Raising the cabin on a pier foundation eliminates the need for a concrete slab and allows the landscape to flow underneath making this design ideal for sloped and uneven sites. The cabin can be adapted to modular prefab construction, which provides for easy delivery to remote locations.

The deck canopy shades the cabin in the summer while allowing for the sun to heat the cabin in the winter making this cabin a passive solar design when properly oriented on site. Passive solar designs can help to reduce energy demand on a building by controlling sun exposure. Contact an engineer or home energy consultant in your area to verify suitability. The large deck and sliding glass doors expand the interior living space to help expand the modest interior layout. The bathroom and shower area are isolated from the main cabin to provide an additional buffer from the living area. The open hallway provides additional space for storage and a natural breezeway for cooling summer winds.

The plan is net zero capable and has been modeled in IECC climate zone 7. As a rough guideline the specifications below achieve net zero for Anchorage, AK. Site specific energy calculations are available.

Orientation – Deck facing South

Location Scenario – Anchorage, AK (IECC climate zone 7)

Windows – Triple Low E

Walls – R38

Roof – R38

HVAC – high efficiency heat pump

PV – 90% roof surface coverage
