Cabin Size: 90 square feet

Property Size: 15 acres
Fifty kilometres from the nearest town in the Pacific Northwest, you’ll find Cabinland: a dreamy, fantastical growing collection of cabins built by Jacob Witzling and his partner, Sara Underwood.
The couple is inspired by the land and nature around them, using salvaged materials whenever possible to create truly stunning cabins in the middle of the rainforest.
The main cabin on the property is a 90-square-foot space that Jacob and Sara have been living in for over a year. The living room is the true definition of cozy thanks to a wood burning stove, reclaimed furniture, and a shelf system used as a bar cart.
The lofted interior means the bedroom is upstairs, and provides an additional 60-square-feet of space in the cabin for the couple.
The large windows surrounding the bed and arched ceiling create an airy and romantic feeling, and making the room feel much bigger than it is.
If you’re looking for the bathroom, it’s a composting toilet outside. Jacob also built one of the coolest outdoor tubs we’ve ever seen, that uses burning wood to keep the water warm. The rest of the power on the property is run by generators.
The couple is continuing to grow Cabinland. The newest addition is this storage cabin, using the same fairy tale design aesthetic.
This dreamy escape was a plan Jacob and Sara made together and put a lot of work into. It started when they built a 40-square-foot cabin on the back of a 1979 Ford pickup, which they then spent driving around and living in for three months before finding the perfect location for Cabinland.
