A cabin that’s so small, it doesn’t need a permit

robin-falck-cabin

(From Lost at e Minor) Did you know that in Finland, you could build your own place without a permit? Of course, that place would have to be less than 96-128 square feet.

In 2010, designer Robin Falck found a location out in the woods where he planned to put up a cabin. Problem was, he didn’t have time to get a permit and finish construction in time for his mandatory military service, which was in less than a year.

The solution? “Screw the police!” or rather, “Screw the permit!” Or at least, that’s what we imagined what he would have said.

Falck designed the cabin during winter months, then proceeded to build his home as soon as the ice thawed. He used locally sourced and recycled material, all carried to the construction site by hand.

After two weeks of hard labor and $10,500 in costs, the mini cabin was finished.

Nido, or “bird’s nest” in Italian, has a cozy lounge area and micro-kitchen on the first floor and a loft on the second floor.

Despite its size, the design makes up for it with lots of natural light and fresh mountain air seeping in from the hug, angled windows.
