One Tree Cabin

Book your stay with

The cabin is located a few miles outside of Truckee, CA and was built in the Fall of 2008.  We tried to use as many reclaimed materials as possible.  The redwood decking and siding were reclaimed from another construction site and the wainscoting is found pallet wood.  We installed 4 inches of foam insulation and use a highly efficient Cylinder Stove as the primary heat source as there is no electric or water.  We also use a 5 gallon bucket as a compostable sawdust toilet!

The 120 sq ft was inspired by The Shack at Hinkle Farm by Jeffrey Broadhurst.
