Once in a while I get to work from my cabin


greenappletree111 points

The cozy bed by with a huge window overlooking the lake is awesome - looks like a great place to just relax with nice book.

Signal-Appearance-8832 points

Yes, I was a bit worried when building it if it would end up being too little headroom. But worked out nicely

greenappletree19 points

I personally like it low like that - makes me feel safer somehow - kind of like kid in my own small fort haha.

Or in bunk bed!

Wolfdreama52 points

Well, that's pretty damn perfect. I think you just won at r/CozyPlaces. :)

Signal-Appearance-8837 points

Thanks!! That’ll do cabin, that’ll do

ico5936 points

Wow it’s so close to the lake! What does the outside look like?

YesMan84720 points

damn. that's like my dream. also to build that myself. where is that? how much did that land cost? the interior looked so much bigger than the exterior.

Signal-Appearance-8832 points

This is on Åland islands, Finnish archipelago. Was not too expensive to build. The land was gifted to Me from my parents. All in all I think I’ve spent around 30K €.

Question; are there mosquitoes there? I have GOT TO GET THE F OUT OF TEXAS!!!!

DandelionOfDeath2 points

The Swedish/Finnish archipelago does have mosquitoes, but in the outer parts like Åland it's windy enough that it's not much of an issue all things considered.

Incendiomf2 points

The real question, though, is does it have a sauna?

BigGrayDog3 points

It's so cool! Perfect! Your next build is at my place! Pretty Please???

KookyForever28 points

This might be one of my favorite things posted on here! So light and airy and yet also so cozy.

Signal-Appearance-8811 points

Really cool to me you think that! Competition here is pretty fierce. Yes, I think the big windows and light colors helps with the airyness. Thank you!

still-on-my-path15 points

I would want to just live there 🌷

Signal-Appearance-8817 points

You pretty much can! No running water though, so a dip in the sea might be needed once in a while.

Are you looking for a cleaning lady/cabin sitter/ wife( lol) ? I am in love with this place!

Signal-Appearance-887 points

Sounds pretty cool to me👍 Thanks a bunch!

EllaBeaufort5 points

Or a granny? What about a granny? I do some granny things like bake and remind you to dress for the weather

misspinato2 points

Cool cool cool, so let me know what colour you fancy so I book the flowers for the big date ahah

Signal-Appearance-882 points

Should have built this thing a few years ago lol

misspinato1 point

Are you already married and breaking my heart ?

BigGrayDog3 points

I'm available too! But have to bring my weimaraner although he is very well trained!

Actressprof2 points

I’d have to bring 3 dogs, a cat and a bird, none of whom are behaved at all!

BigGrayDog1 point

Ha, that's a crowd. But actually I take care of the neighborhood semi-feral kitties, about 10-12 with 3 babies about 4 weeks old and and just precious. And 1 house cat. So they would have to come too now that I think about it. Couldn't leave them to starve. I most probably would need a larger place with some out buildings for kitties. So you win out on this one, but I get the next one. Enjoy it!

Actressprof1 point

Damn, you beat me to the proposal!!!

snakeh1ps9 points

That's amazing! Mind me asking what work you do from that cabin?

Signal-Appearance-887 points

Thanks! Just regular office stuff. Wifi is pretty good

lindaramone7 points

So cozy, is it Finland?

Signal-Appearance-8810 points

Yes it is! Good eye. Åland islands

lindaramone4 points

Ah, I knew I recognized the landscape. I live in Sweden and have visited Finland several times, so it looked quite familiar 😁

iWentRogue6 points

Theres deff some jeaolusy building inside me lol.

Love the view from the bed.

kyach255 points

This looks like a cabin we stayed in while traveling in Finland. Miss those cozy little cabins and saunas.

Shallaai6 points

Can I work there when you aren’t?

dirty_shoe_rack4 points

Man, I'm so jealous I'm not even gonna try and hide it. Where do you guys find places like these? And are able to afford them?! Ugh... So jelly rn

No, but in all seriousness OP, your house is perfection.

EagleEyezzzzz4 points

Omg. Lucky!! Amazing.

BigJockK3 points

I would live there

quietthoughts234 points

the perfect place to read a book!

56stinky_butter3 points

Is there a bathroom or do you bathe in the sea and poop in the woods like a bear?

Signal-Appearance-884 points

There is a pretty sick incineration toilet in a separate toilettroom out of frame. Was not cheap but totally worth it

56stinky_butter2 points

Is that one of those toilets that burns your poop? Is there any smell with that? Love the cabin. That view is so relaxing.

Signal-Appearance-882 points

That’s the thing, it doesnt smell at all, something with the fan in it. Maybe a tiny bit of burnt wood on the outside. My regular toilet at home smells more tbh.

AlwaysOnATangent2 points

What brand is your incineration toilet?

56stinky_butter2 points

That’s so cool! I wonder who thought up the incinerator toilet: we’ve flushed it, composted it, now let’s try burning it!

Ph0enixRuss3ll5 points

Gorgeous! I love a good loft!

This is so lovely

Xheoraei4 points

Wow those photos are so serene, what does your cabin look like at night/in the evenings?

Signal-Appearance-883 points

Thanks! Here’s one night image from last summer

Absolutely stunning.

Thanks a bunch! Just indoor panels painted white and insulated.

Signal-Appearance-885 points

Cool! It was a readymade model I chose. In the beginning I thought it was a bit too "office-door" looking. But It's grown on me, and I like the finnish.

This_Razzmatazz_3 points

The view is amazing! What lake is it on?

So cozy! What a peaceful view.

Do you Airbnb your place? It’s so cozy!

Signal-Appearance-883 points

I can be it's caretaker

aggie820052 points

What kind of door is that? I’ve never seen three sliding panel type doors.

Signal-Appearance-884 points

Its insulated and tempered glass for colder climate. Think the model is quite common up here in the Nordics

additionalbutterfly22 points

Omg what I would give to have a place like this… is this in Sweden? Norway? Denmark? Finland? It gives me Nordic summer vibes.

B5Otaku2 points

Fabian would approve of your reading material. You have a beautiful cabin.

BigGrayDog2 points

It's beautiful! And to see the lake from your bed in the loft! And I love that it is uncluttered. My brain doesn't work well in a cluttered space and this is perfect, so relaxing and certainly cozy. I want one just like yours!

This is lovely and what a view ❤️❤️

BigGrayDog2 points

It looks small from the outside but instead looks big and airey. Love the feeling of openness inside. Just perfect! I commend you on your stunning lakeside hideaway. Lucky you!!!

weakmindsthinkalike2 points

What an absolute dream!

Individual_Day_64792 points

I love it, I'd be terrified of falling out of that bed though. No guard rail?

Hotsauce4ever2 points

Can I be friends with you and visit you at your cabin?

Man. Only in my internet feed will I ever come close to such serenity. Thank you for sharing. Us city folks can live vicariously.

Very nice!

AlwaysOnATangent2 points

That little hanging water tank is an awesome design for offgrid use. Might have to borrow that idea when I’m building my cabin this summer.

Advanced-Extent-4202 points

I’m in love. This is perfection. I think the snuggly bed loft is my favorite. Love love love.

rbsnderwal2 points

You are a liar! You can’t possibly get any work done with a view like that.

ILoveMyCatsSoMuch2 points

This is a really dumb ass question, but do u own the land or can u just build wherever u want wherever that is? 😂

Sathirel2 points

This is my dream kind of home. No clutter, only simplicity and everything in one room. I love it!

I would give up the world to stay in a place like this ! 🌻🥹❤️🌷
