Mother Earth News Magazine's Cozy Cabin

Free DIY Plans and Building Guide for a Cozy Cabin at

Build your own little cabin with the help of this step-by-step building guide.


Builder Steve Maxwell writes that "Many people dream of building a cabin or cottage in the woods, beside a lake, along a bubbling brook or on top of a mountain with sweeping views. But cabins are not just for wilderness living. They also can offer cozy space as a guest room, an artistsí retreat, a craft center or a small office".

In a great article from a 2006 issue of Mother Earth News magazine, he shows you how to build a 14-by-20-foot cabin with a sleeping loft over a shady front porch.

The economical little house is designed for easy framing. Concrete pier footings let the cabin adapt to any terrain, including sloping, rough and rocky ground. Maxwell gives you extensive step-by-step building instructions and a complete material list. A beautiful isometric drawing and details by Len Churchill make the project easy to understand.
