We build an extremely small off grid house on stilts in the forest - 'The Forest Cube.' The inside is insulated to R2000 standards with rockwool, then wrapped in plastic vapor barrier and tuck taped to be completely sealed from the outside. While not conventional, the walls are finished with drywall, and painted. But the ceiling has a super fancy 'tray ceiling' that glows bright with recessed rope lights and pot lights. These all run off the Inergy portable battery pack. We decided to use a engineered hardwood floor supplied by Bigelow Flooring. The shell of the cube is completely wrapped in kerdi waterpoof membrane made by Schluter, including the flat roof to give The Cube, it's unique look. Regular framing forms the structure of The Cube which is bolted to the cedar posts supports. I have used reclaimed materials for nearly all of the construction, from the lumber, to the windows and doors. The aluminum door is cut from a full frame garage door and purposely narrow to permit more wall space for bedding and sitting. The upright door is only meant to access the wrap-around porch, while the lower hatch serves for entry and exit. It is also cut small to keep the space useful. Inside, The Forest Cube doesn't feel cramped because of the big front window opening up the space to the forest and pond that surround it. The view is amazing! The pond area will grow in with lush vegetation by next spring and the waters be filled with wildlife, fish and frogs, and our pet ducks! Other features to be added to the space will include indoor lighting supplied by a quiet battery generator and unique decor such as a 'floating ceiling.' The Cube is being heated with Cubic Mini Wood Stove: https://cubicminiwoodstoves.com/ Most of the materials are sources on-site, including the cedar posts holding up the deck and the spruce trees milled on a portable sawmill. The rest of the materials are salvaged, and so either free, or very inexpensive including the re-used pressure treated lumber and the discarded propane tank. The propane tank is the perfect place for an open fire pit, hung up over the Juliet balcony to maximize the view over the front of the deck in full view of the pond. We finish the inside of the extremely small off grid house on stilts in the forest - 'The Forest Cube.' While not conventional, the walls are finished with drywall, and painted. But the ceiling has a super fancy 'tray ceiling' that glows bright with recessed rope lights and pot lights. These all run off the Inergy portable battery pack. The Forest Cube is outfitted with a small bed, coffee table that doubles as a storage unit, coat rack, and shelves to hold personal decorations. Future plans will include a wrap-around porch and outdoor cooking area. The small cube is a self-contained living space of just 64 sq t. raised up off the ground on cedar post stilts to both protect from the elements, save on foundational requirements, and provide an epic view of the pond and surrounding forest!
