Swedish "Chameleon" Cabin In The Woods- A Tiny Hut That You Can Rent!

Wow....check out this Swedish woodland cabin that you can rent nightly! Quite the chameleon- a rustic heap (which I love), on the outside, and swanky on the in. A working fireplace is sure to keep it warm, but I don't see a single window(?)- still, I love how simple this little cabin/micro-rental is....Apparently, its one of a few cabins on this property....I'm digging for more info, or anyone who has it, please post it below...

Derek "Deek" Diedricksen runs the blog, Hosts "Tiny Yellow House" TV on youtube, teaches workshops for the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, and is author of the tiny house, fort, cabin, treehouse, and cottage design book "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks" which you can check out by clicking HERE.

  2. This type of dwelling is called Kolarkoja in Swedish. They were a type of temporary lodging used by the workers who used to tend charcoal kilns in the woods. Similar structures such as the Torvkåta and Gamme can also be found across Scandinavia, and were often used by woodsmen and reindeer herders as shelter.

  3. Drag and drop any image to the image search field in google and you will find where it comes from :D

    Located in a dense forest by the beautiful Lake Skärsjön, Kolarbyn consists of twelve forest huts equipped with cozy sheep skin rugs and a warm fire place. Even though there is no electricity and you have to cut your own firewood, you can experience primitive living at its finest with local food, breathtaking views and adventurous wildlife tours.

  4. This proves how good Scandinavian design is. Who else could take a pile of brush and make it chic?
