2. Olympia, Washington

This cabin on a 10 x 10-foot base was built, completely out of recycled materials, by Jacob Witzling when he was just 23. That was 10 years ago and since then he’s gone on to build several other exquisite cabins.

3. Småland, Sweden

This earthen cabin was actually built back in the early 1800s by a man named ‘Little Jon.’ It has three stone walls, one wooden wall, and a live sod roof — which doesn’t only look cool, it’s great insulation as well. These sorts of structures were known as ‘backstugas’ and were common from the 1600s to the late 1800s. They were often built on forested land that couldn’t be farmed, between two properties. The inhabitants usually worked for the landowners.

4. Leavenworth, Washington

This one’s built out of stone, so the necessity for masonry skills boosts the difficulty level, but the design is simple and check out those recycled skis along the top edge.
