Gallery: Off-Grid Tennessee Micro Cabin Packs in High Design

 
The butterfly roof is a simple solution that creates a perfect place to set a modest solar electric array.

The cabin began as a steel cube—the vertical cedar slats give it strength, and openings in the back wall add interest. The verticality of the façade helps the cabin slip into the woods during the day, and at night light from the interior escapes through the silver openings. The other sides are simple screened-in frames that allow breezes to enter and provide views of the lake and mountains beyond. The entrance is a generous 8 x 8 foot rolling screen door, which is protected by a tall roof overhang to block sun and capture rain.

    Only thing missing is an envirolet or incinerator toilet. Or do you figure on an oldfashioned thundermug?
