1. Cozy Cabin In The Woods

Why It Makes The List:

This beautiful and cozy cabin has so many great extra features like double barn doors with decorative trim and handy access ramps leading up to them. The lovely window boxes beneath the two standard aluminum windows give it that extra homey touch. You can also have it wired for electricity and insulated to keep it warm and comfortable. It would make a great place for your weekend guests to stay, or, if you are short on space, it would be a wonderful garden storage space.

Most Impressive Part:

It is so incredibly easy to own this cabin especially since the company offers a great “Rent-To-Own” option with payments as low as $85 per month. Click here for more information.

2. Granny Flat

Why It Makes The List:

If you need some extra space for guests or relatives staying with you, this great portable granny flat would do the trick nicely. It has an open plan kitchen/living room design and covers a total area of 78 m2 (839.6 square feet). The verandah out front is a lovely feature and the split roof design is a very pleasing alternative to the standard “box-shaped” cabin design.

3. Tropical Park Cabin

Why It Makes The List:

We really like the “vacation” feel of these portable park cabins. They would make the perfect family getaway complete with a nice sized bedroom as well as a bunk bed area for the children. There is lots of built-in storage space and a nice sized bathroom. We also like the extended overhang above the porch.

4. Wooden Granny Flat

Why It Makes The List:

This natural wood granny flat is reminiscent of the old west, especially with the open and sprawling front verandah. The flat also is equipped with a toilet and shower as well as one bedroom. It’s a great size with a total area of 47.04 m2 (506.3 square feet). We love the huge matching picture windows at the front of this design, making the inside incredibly bright and cheery.

Most Impressive Part:

We love how they left the natural wood without painting it. The beauty of the real wood is rustic yet classic.

Why It Makes The List:

The Bunkie is a “micro-house” or mini-cabin which can give you extra sleeping area for visiting relatives or friends. It would also make a fun place for your children’s sleepovers. It’s tiny at 100 square feet plus the 50 square foot loft, but it cleverly makes good use of its small footprint.

Most Impressive Part:

You can climb up into a cute loft where you can curl up and enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.

The charming front porch is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors while being sheltered from the sun. It comes with two aluminum windows and one front house door. You can choose from a variety of colours including brown, clay, gray, red, tan, or white. You also have a selection of roof materials and colours such as brown, gray, and rustic red metal, or black or brown shingles.
