Cost-Effective Tiny Cabin in Wood and Polycarbonate Panel Makes an Impact!

Alternative home construction methods often produce the most unique and beautiful of structures that move away from the mundane. Having spent nearly all his life creating, designing and bringing to life, cost-effective homes and tiny cabins, the challenge of building another one in the coastal city of Guanaqueros, Chile was nothing new for Alejandro Soffia. The Polycarbonate Cabin is a lovely little second home that stands next to another more spacious and extravagant structure and overlooks the coastline. The owner of both these homes wanted to use them as rented units where travelers can enjoy the local sights and sounds.

The cabin feels intrinsically simple in its form and places practicality, efficiency and budget-friendly design above all else. Locally hired carpenter was used in shaping its woodsy interior with the 30-square-meter space being utilized to the hilt. The small bedroom inside the cabin comes with a polycarbonate panel in the backdrop that allows filtered light to come through while offering ample privacy. A glass wall on the other side offers wonderful views of the landscape while the cozy and modern interior leaves those inside relaxed.

A small deck extends the living area outside and offers sitting space for those who wish to spend more time outdoors than inside. Décor inside the cabin is kept down to a minimum with wood additions setting the tone throughout. Cozy lighting and a plethora of sitting areas complete a cabin that is easy on the planet and on the pocket![Photography: Juan Durán Sierralta]
