This Tiny A-Frame Cabin Is Available for Less Than $20K
Sleek, modular, and sustainably built—the Bivvi Cabin is ready to take you on your next off-grid getaway. Built by outdoor enthusiasts for outdoor enthusiasts, the compact prefab is the latest project by Bivvi Camp, a team of designers based in Portland, Oregon.
"What started as plans to build a wilderness hut for friends slowly turned into a business idea," notes the firm. "When Bivvi started in 2019, the market was flooded with options for tents, yurts, and trailers. What it lacked was a simple, well-designed cabin that was comfortable all year round and didn’t involve long and expensive on-site assembly."
Inspired by the classic form of the A-frame, the Bivvi Cabin is designed to be prefabricated in a controlled factory environment. As the firm notes, "this strategy reduces waste and speeds up production. Every Bivvi arrives fully built, eliminating costly on-site construction costs."
The compact cabin measures 8'6" wide by 11'6" long and 10'6" tall—which allows it to be legally transported on roads to its end destination. It also stays true to the company’s core ethos. "Our name, Bivvi, is derived from the word ‘bivouac,’ a small temporary shelter that can be easily packed and deployed in the wilderness. Bivvi embodies the same resourcefulness. From the way we design our cabins to the way we conduct ourselves as a business, we create the highest quality products through the most efficient means possible."
With sustainability in mind, the team designed the exterior of the cabin with long-lasting materials that can withstand a range of climates. The fully insulated interior can be finished with pine or plywood, and cabins can be customized with electrical wiring, solar panels, heating systems, and furniture.
The starting cost of the Bivvi Cabin is $19,880. Learn more about the cabin features and building process on the Bivvi Camp website.
