Cabin Porn Roundup

This Week in Podcasts may have ended, but I have no intention of ending my monthly Cabin Porn Roundups. For October, then, check out these neat little structures from across the world.

Tent Bungalow

Against a backdrop of beautiful stars and underneath a few old Pine trees, this tent bungalow in Pescadero, California, lights the approaching darkness as if with an otherworldly light.

Fire lookout near Canyonville, Oregon

Somewhere nestled in the mountains near Canyonville, Oregon, someone built a cabin resembling an old fire lookout. I have only ever had the privilege of climbing to the top of one fire tower before, but to this day it remains one of the coolest hiking destinations of my life. I can only imagine what it would be like to live up there.

The Glass House

Whereas the last cabin sought to free itself of its earthly bonds and thus took to the skies, The Glass House seems to not only accept the reality of its situation, but embrace it as well.

Whitefish Yurt

Sean and Molly Busby — the owners of this neat Yurt atop a mountain near Glacier National Park in Montana — are two very, very lucky people. I would love to have something like this someday.

Lean-to

It doesn’t exactly compete on the same fronts as The Glass House or the Busbys’ Yurt, but there’s a certain undeniable charm to this little lean-to in the hills of Colorado.

Cabin in Big Sur, CA

Apparently I ought to have renamed this post “American Cabin Porn Roundup”, because this neat little cabin, like all of its predecessors, is from America as well.

Cabin with an earthen roof

What a beautiful view. Replace the snow-capped peaks framing this little cabin in Norway with ones covered in green foliage, and this view almost perfectly matches one I came across on a trail in Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park. It was a bit of a climb, but so worth the effort.

Pocosin Cabin

Back across the ocean to America, this “pocosin cabin” comes to us from the woods of Virginia. Make all the jokes you want about the good people down there, and although many have at least one shred of truth to them, I would still love to spend some time living in this part of the country.

Clingstone House

The Clingstone Hose sits atop an island in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, and although not a cabin by any stretch of the imagination, it nevertheless evokes a similar sense of rustic awe as the more primitive structures traditionally featured here.

Wooden Shelter, the Alps

The first picture Cabin Porn featured of this shelter showed several carpenters in the construction process, and caught my eye. Although it did not stand out as particularly noteworthy, the second kept my interest, and I kept scrolling. The third, however, blew me away: perched 2531 meters atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps along the border between Slovenia and Italy, the view afforded from this cabin’s doorstep is remarkable; breathtakingly beautiful.

Delta Shelter

Courtesy of Huckberry, the Delta Shelter in upstate New York. Although the author, Liv Combe, might not think it particularly attractive, I like the modern, boxy architecture. Coupled with impressive defensive measures and a beautiful interior, this looks like a place I could see myself spending a great deal of time in.
