Fire Tower Cabin


Here is a fire tower cabin like you have never seen before. Actually, there is probably a good chance you have seen a picture of it since it has floated around the internet the last several years.

I was pretty excited to see that Tiny House Nation did a tour of the fire tower finally. People have been asking to see more pictures of the cabin for years and now there is actually a video. We have been planning a small remote cabin the last several years and decided that this is the design we are modeling our project after. We will be utilizing the slip-form masonry method for the ground level as described here in this short video.

As always the project will be fully chronicled with pictures and video. We can’t wait to get started!
