Kauai Cabin (200 Sq Ft)

Kauai, HI // 200 Sq Ft // By Jay Nelson

Hidden away in the lush north of Kauai, artist, and woodworker Jay Nelson has unveiled his latest creation: a stunning 200-square-foot cabin that defies its small size. Constructed using 25,000 pounds of salvaged redwood in just under two months, this tiny house is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and ingenuity.

Elevated on a secure platform to protect against potential flood damage, the cabin seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings. Large windows and a strategically placed skylight flood the interior with an abundance of natural light, allowing for breathtaking views of the tropical paradise outside.

Nelson's artistic touch is evident in every corner of the cabin. Circular windows, both in the loft area and on the bathroom door tucked beneath the stairs, add a whimsical charm to the space. These thoughtful details enhance the connection between the cabin and the natural environment, creating a harmonious retreat.

For seamless indoor-outdoor living, the cabin features folding doors that open onto the platform, effortlessly extending the living space and inviting guests to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. This versatile design allows for a seamless transition between the interior and exterior, blurring the boundaries and embracing the serene atmosphere of Kauai.

This cabin shows the possibilities of small living and the importance of integrating nature into living spaces. This enchanting retreat is an invitation to immerse oneself in the tranquility of the island and embrace the beauty of simple, sustainable living.
