Perfect for grading papers or for use as a low-key vacation getaway, the 6-foot-tall micro cabin measures 7 feet by 5 feet and can even comfortably sleep two. While the timber siding was sourced from Vermont’s Goodridge Lumber, the pod’s colorful mosaic-like back wall, or “wild wall” as Diedricksen calls it, was constructed entirely from free, found and salvaged materials. Ondura, a super durable recycled roofing material, covers the top of the tiny pod and protects it from the elements.

Inside, the small cabin gives off a yoga studio vibe with its dark polyurethane beadboard flooring and a colorful assortment of pillows. An orange spaghetti colander that Diedricksen bought from a dollar store and repurposed into a light illuminates the room. Scraps of Tuftex, a smoky-colored polycarbonate roofing material, cover the door and the whole front side of the pod, which flips up and out to maximize ventilation and take advantage of nice summer weather. For a more in-depth tour, you can watch Diedricksen’s narrated video of the cabin here.
