Finnish designer Robin Falck found the perfect place in the woods to build a cabin. But knowing that he had mandatory military service coming up in less than a year, he had to get a move on it.
He also wouldn't have time to get a permit, so he found a loophole in Finnish law that doesn't require permits for structures less than 128 square feet.
He used the winter months for designing and broke ground on his tiny cabin in June. He carried all his building materials by hand, using locally sourced and recycled materials as much as possible throughout his two week building process.
His careful planning gets the angles just right. Now the windows will get just the right amount of natural light and a view of the stars.
The first floor is the lounge and efficiency kitchen with an upstairs sleeping loft area. He estimates that the total cost for his cabin, which he affectionately named "Nido," Italian for "bird's nest," was roughly $10,500.
