The Writer's Haven Tiny Guest House/Cabin Photo Gallery (from The Jamaica Cottage Shop)

     First, a REALLY cool, and thorough, review of my "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" book just came in from Andrew Odom of a great site.  Check it out HERE... 
     Andrew is very involved with both the back to the land, and tiny housing movement. The book also made it to the #1 spot on's carpentry books category again- which is just crazy. Thank you all! You can see the cover art, and order it below....

THE WRITER'S HAVEN- one of my all time favorite tiny house/cabin designs....

Today's post is for the sake of inspirational eye candy for MYSELF, as well, hopefully, as all of you. This little cabin, dubbed "The Writer's Haven" by the Jamaica Cottage Shop in South Londonderry, Vermont is amongst, in my opinion, one of the cooler, nicer looking, micro cabin kits on the market. I was bumpin' around online last night and browsing through the JCS's site, when I also saw that they have a floor model or two of this very cabin, both selling damn reasonably, at under $7000. Being a stubborn do-it-yourselfer, its rare that I even consider buying anything off anyone else, especially cabin or shed related, but this Writer's Haven would be pretty incredible in a woodland setting if you didn't have the time, and know-how to set out upon building such a thing. You can find more from Domenic Mangano and crew at:

I'd LOVE to visit one of these someday- and film it perhaps....
