For the roof, I used an ancient primitive technology to waterproof and preserve the wood – shou sugi ban, a fire hardening wood preservation technique unique to Japan and other areas in northern climates.Read More: My Self Reliance 

Because the cabin is offgrid, I have used handtools for most of the build and without power, I have no options on site regardless.The tiny house will continue to be operated with power, not even renewable energy for now, so I’m heating the cabin with a woodstove fire place, which I also cook on.

The cabin is made of cedar fence posts, twelve feet long and the cabin measures 10 feet x 20 feet inside with a one hundred square foot sleeping loft on the second floor.The floor is made of two inch thick pine planks, torched to help repel water and to give them a rustic barn board appearance.via: My Self Reliance
