Gallery: Awesome Shinto-Inspired Sleeping Cabin Made From Reclaimed Mat...

While perusing one of our new favorite sites, we came across this awesome little hut in California. Made by Simple Shelter Texas, this sleeping cabin is made from reclaimed materials and holds a bed, a few chairs and a wood burning stove. A perfect rustic retreat, this tiny space was inspired by Shinto temples in Japan and has us dreaming about spending a lazy couple of days out in the middle of 40 acres.

This reclaimed wood sleeping cabin was built by Simple Shelter Texas on a 40 acre site in California. Starting with a pile of reclaimed fencing and some other reclaimed wood, Victor Summers built this simple shelter to house a bed and seating and it even has room for a wood burning stove. Summers is a builder of one-of-a-kind, custom garden structures using reclaimed materials. He collects reclaimed wood and carefully plans his designs to minimize waste and keep costs down.

The original inspiration for this shelter came from Shinto temples and a desire for a low-key place of rest and contemplation. Mounted on 24″ reclaimed utility poles, the cabin is perched above the ground and accessed by a rustic ladder. All of the materials were recycled and reclaimed, except for the roof, which is corrugated tin and purchased was from Home Depot.
