A portable off-grid tiny house that looks like a stack of wood

An Italian architectural firm called Lab Zero have designed a multi-purpose sustainable hut dubbed the "Yeta Log Cabin" that at first glance looks like nothing but a stack of logs.

The Yeta Log Cabin looks like an innocuous stack of wood, but is actually a sustainably built, portable multi-purpose dwelling. Though only 12.5’ wide x 14.5’ long x 10.75’ tall this efficiently designed space includes a kitchen, bathroom, shower and solar panels for off-grid power.

With both kitchen and bathroom behind moveable partitions, the uncluttered interior is skillfully designed to be an undefined multi-functional space. When lowered, the main door acts as a deck offering natural light provided by a full wall double paned window. When no longer in use, the deck folds up, covering the window and completing the illusion that this structure is but a mere pile of logs.

Built with untreated wood, this low impact hideaway is equipped with LED fixtures, carbon-based filters to treat rain water on site, has a separate tank for waste water, and is fully insulated for use in almost any locale. If you're a fan of tiny, efficient, sustainable buildings as we are, you'll love the Yeta Cabin by Lab Zero.
