Many of us dream of leaving the modern world behind and escaping to an idyllic off-the-grid cabin where we can relax, enjoy quiet time and be with nature. In this weeks episode, we meet an inspiring couple who did exactly that, building an amazing cabin by the river.
At 54 square meters, (850ft2) this small cabin is situated in a stunning location with panoramic views looking over the river and out to the forest beyond. Completely off-the-grid, solar powered and with rain water collection, this cabin is a beautiful and fully functional home.
From its modern, black exterior through to the warm plywood interior and exceptional views, this cabin is a dream home. Enjoy the full video tour!

Living Big In A Tiny House
I hope you all enjoy this weeks video! With all the craziness in the world I think there are lots of people right now who are dreaming of escaping to a simple and beautiful off the grid cabin. If you can't escape into nature yourself right now, at least you can escape into this video! With love, Bryce & Rasa

Lovely cottage. As always thanks for sharing Bryce. I literally have a 10m x 6m platform to build on on a large sloping plot. Whilst the owner has said 54sqm, did he mention the external length x width, hoping he is prepared to share! 🙏🏻

Hey Bryce, It would be great if you start some course on a complete off-grid sustainable homes... Highlighting the building procedures, adv, disadv, machines, cost estimates etc....

I love many things about this cabin, particularly the generous width and height. Too many of the places on this channel are 8 feet wide so they can be driven around, and that risks feeling like a claustrophobic tunnel. This house feels roomy and the upstairs would be comfortably usable. But I personally cannot imagine living with that much plywood. Looks like an unfinished closet.

Amazing in every way. Is that a separate little guest space that we can see from inside the home? It wasn't mentioned so I am curious. Thanks for all these wonderfully inspiring homes. Susie

I like the exterior of the building, the windows, doors, the rain water collection, the solar panels, etc. The plywood look on the interior is not for me.

Tricky to orientate for sun when the site is south facing and views to the river are to the south - southwest. When you don't wanna go big or budget limits size then sliding or french doors that open out onto a deck can be an 'outside room' and create a feeling of extra spaciousness. A well designed deck is what this place needs instead of all those precipitous stairs up to the front door and it wouldn't cost the earth and probably won't need building consent if not too high.

Wow there are so many comments about how he says "yeah" so many times, but I didn't really notice it that much, maybe because I am Australian ? Fantastic cabin in stunning location, I like the owner built cabins the most.

Nice home! Love the downstairs bedroom. Love the exterior and that it sits on a foundation. Seems a little bigger than your typical tiny home...it's just big enough for two empty nesters. I wish Bryce would have gotten them to show him what that small little out building was. Looked like a little hang out spot or something.

It’s really nice. I love the interior decor, the bare walls covered with contemporary art. So glad you didn’t go the ubiquitous cabin bear and moose theme. The only thing I’d change is to add outdoor deck space. But I’d say it’s pretty much perfection.

My experience with back to nature is that it is a soul driven need that lasts 20 minutes at best. One goes to the railing for the view and comes away asking oneself, "Ah, how rewarding, now what?" They need to surrender and get wifi and Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Fandor etc... That the cabin is rent free is good enough. And don't forget the barbecued pork ribs and beer.

Ever noticed how racist and filled with discrimination this industry is ? So many need a house to call home and to what an expense does the rest of civilization go without. But its not only that, its high maintenance too. Seniors need medical care, and family. But the cities are not making that work. Honking their horns when the elderly can't cross the street fast enough. So the family arrives with dirt bikes and big bouncing trucks, motor boats, motorhomes and sitting sports, eye candy and toys. How do the elderly go grocery shopping ? They drive to the city of course. More sitting sports. I have never met a man in the industry who is clean. Hauling in coal and wood chips to spread about the house, when was the last time they swabbed a deck or did the laundry or even the dishes. They can't they don't know how left to the women the only person rewarded in the end is the guy sitting at the desk ! He still requires his chambermaid team after he oils the chainsaw, his gun and hones his axe whilst retiring for a beer that by nightfall requires he be oiled too. A home should never be a reward or a punishment. Any community needs a balance of all ages color and gender enough with cogs gold and diamonds for the privilege of too few.
